Nanomechanical Testing

Tribo iQ

A complete data processing, analysis, graphing, and reporting solution for Hysitron nanomechanical test instruments.

A smarter way to handle your data

Tribo iQ™ is designed to be the brains behind Bruker’s advanced nanoindentation and nanomechanical testing instruments, which cover the widest range of samples and techniques. Tribo iQ encompasses a suite of technique-specific software applications that handle everything post data acquisition, including advanced data processing, analysis, graphing, and reporting for the Hysitron family of nanomechanical instruments.

The streamlined individual technique-focused nature of Tribo iQ simplifies and accelerates the experiment-analysis loop. In addition to Tribo iQ’s continuously expanding suite of pre-programmed applications, users can write their own customized application recipes that can be shared within the nanomechanical testing community. This user-driven experience results in:

  • Increased productivity
  • Easy-to-use interface
  • Powerful results

Tribo iQ comes standard with Hysitron nanomechanical test instruments operating with the Performech II advanced control module or later.
