Compression Presses

Anton Paar TriTec SA (previously CSM Instruments) has been leader in the development of instruments for surface mechanical properties characterization for over 30 years in both research and industrial fields.
CSM Instruments develops, manufactures and sells instruments to characterize mechanical properties of surfaces. We have been the world leader in this market for more than 30 years, first under the name of LSRH then CSEM.
CSM Instruments provides equipment that allows the mechanical characterization of a wide range of surfaces and bulk materials. Adhesion of paints, optical thin films or hard coatings can be defined using one of our Scratch Testers. These span the nano to the macro range to analyze the widest range of materials. Dynamic testing measurements can be performed to define not only the hardness of the material, but also to evaluate the plastic and elastic deformation, the elasticity module, creep and much more. For wear testing we offer the Tribometer, based on the pin-on-disc principle that operates both in the Micro and Nano regime; to record the frictional coefficient and measure the wear volume. Other equipment measures film thickness. Additionally, CSM provides three dimensional viewing capabilities of sample surfaces under most testing regimes.

Freiberg Instruments GmbH, Freiberg, Germany
Delfter Str. 6, D-09599 Freiberg, Germany

Freiberg Instruments is now one of the world’s fastest growing, young and dynamic analytical instrumentation companies with products covering a broad spectrum of applications in fields/industries like Semiconductor, Microelectronics, Photovoltaic, Dosimetry, Medical Research, Luminescence Dating, X-ray diffraction, Material Research and Electron Spin Resonance.

Established in 2005 as an university spin off from TU Bergakademie – The University of Resources, Freiberg Instruments devoted the first few years to develop and test a whole family of fast, nondestructive, electrical characterization tools under production conditions, measuring parameters like minority carrier lifetime, photoconductivity and resistivity.

MDP Microwave-Detected Photoconductivity:
The advanced method MDP is well suited for both, defect investigation by e.g. injection dependent minority carrier lifetime measurements, as well as mapping of wafers or even ingots for inline metrology. MDP has a variety of advantages in sensitivity, speed and resolution.

MD-PICTS:
MD-PICTS is a modification of MDP, where temperature dependent measurements of the defect part of the transient are accomplished. This allows to do a spatial resolved defect characterization.

The IMI Series offers a multifunctional platform for the study of physisorption, chemisorption and gas absorption by materials, from entry level manometric analyzers to advanced multistream dynamic flow systems with integrated mass spectrometry.

The IGA Series provides fully automated and precise measurement of the magnitude and kinetics of gas or vapor interactions with samples at controlled pressure and temperature. The unique IGA method exploits the relaxation of the sample after pressure or temperature change to simultaneously determine kinetic parameters and equilibrium uptake. IGA systems are recognised instruments of excellence with over 20 years proven performance in many prominent industrial organizations and leading academic research institutes worldwide.

The XEMIS is a high accuracy sorption microbalance for precision weighing in extreme environments. Available as a standalone microbalance or as part of a fully integrated sorption analyzer, the XEMIS provides remarkable flexibility, as well as outstanding weighing stability and accuracy.

The XCS Series provides users with a unique controlled climate for a range of scientific applications.
Intelligent control software performs real-time analysis of environmental conditions, maintaining the composition defined by the user, or following pre-programmed sequences for fully automated control.
The ABR is a dedicated breakthrough analyzer, fully automated and supplied with an integrated close-coupled mass spectrometer.
The ABR is available in a range of configurations to suit research-scale samples, with bed volumes from 2 cc to 20 cc. Up to 6 gas inlets are available as well as a dedicated purge stream. Flow rates are selected to suit the specific applications, and the ABR includes an ultra-low dead volume switching valve. Options include an upgrade for operation at pressures to 50 bar, and an integrated vapor generator module for gas-vapor operation.
The ABR is designed to meet the needs of researchers wishing to characterise the gas separation performance of novel materials such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs) without the time or expense of synthesising larger quantities of material. The breakthrough data obtained is complementary to the adsorption-desorption isotherms measured with our IGA, IGAsorp, XEMIS and IMI sorption analyzers.

Kett, Villa Park CA, USA
PMB 504, 17853 Santiago Blvd. Ste. 107
Villa Park, CA 92861
Instant measurement instruments for process control, QC and laboratory use.

Kett was started by four engineers in 1946. After initially introducing a wood moisture tester and metal detector, it was their vision to design and manufacture portable handheld moisture analyzers. The goal was to provide a rice farmer with the same level of measurement quality available within government test labs. As is still true today, the customer depended on the accuracy of this measurement and the reliability of his instrument to standardize the quality of his harvested rice product. This standardization would provide him with an optimal harvest yield, maximizing his return on investment.
After the successful introduction of the Riceter, which is still the standard for portable rice moisture testing, the Kett development staff expanded into Coating Thickness Gauges for the emerging Japanese automobile industry. In addition, they quickly released additional moisture testers for other agricultural applications and infrared Moisture Balances for general purpose moisture analyses.
Awards for instrument design and performance followed shortly after and continue to this day.
Today our focus is moisture and organic composition analysis, coating thickness measurement, friction, wear, peel, adhesion and other surface property analyses, rice quality instrumentation and other agricultural test instruments for the grain and seed marketplace.
