Surface Materials Tester SMT-5000

The SMT Instruments are the first answer to the increasingly complex testing requirements for surfaces across many industries– from liquid to ultra hard solid materials. SMT series provides a combination of multiple investigative techniques to measure surfaces on one platform. For example, with one run, a combination of coating adhesion, hardness, thickness, surface roughness, and 3D image data come together for a conclusive comprehensive analysis.

The SMT instruments come standard with a control software and a data analysis software. This allows the user to continue to run the instrument while analyzing data from previous tests.
