By measurement service ISAT understands the provision of existing laboratory equipment and measuring instruments as well as qualified personnel to interested industrial partners. This service is particularly aimed at small and medium-sized companies that lack the equipment and manpower to carry out their own investigations. Of course, the service can also be used by large companies.
The typical measurement services of ISAT include, for example, the recording of climate and temperature cycles in our Ex-protected climate chamber with a capacity of 200 L, which can be used to simulate the durability and behaviour of components materials under a wide variety of climatic conditions. ISAT also offers investigations using laser scanning microscopes. The ISAT has two different devices available for this purpose. One of the laser scanning microscopes allows the determination of the surface roughness of material samples and thus makes it possible, for example, to check the quality of coatings. The second confocal fluorescence laser scanning microscope is designed for the examination of biological samples. A typical application is 3-D analysis and thickness determination of microbial biofilms. ISAT also has a laser scanning vibrometer for measuring vibrations, a high-speed and thermal imaging camera and various sensor systems for measuring liquid properties, temperature, strain and acceleration, layer thickness, flow and distance. Measurement services also include computer-aided simulation of processes or sample production of components in our workshop.
