Equipment


P2SEL researchers have a manufacturing laboratory as well as a materials characterization laboratory for use in their work.

The materials characterization laboratory is a one-of-a-kind laboratory.  It forms an integral part of research on clean manufacturing, and is equipped with :

  • Atomic force microscope
  • Variable-pressure scanning electron microscope
  • LEXT OLS4000 3D confocal laser microscope
  • Topodynamometer: friction and durable [GM6] device
  • 120,000 fps high speed camera
  • FTIR, infrared spectrometer
  • 200 kN high deformation tension/compression machine
  • 25 kN tension/compression / machine / torsion machine + environment room
  • Dynamic digital acquisition system, force and movement sensor
  • TGA/DTA, thermogravimetry 25°C to 1500°C
  • Gas analyzer




The manufacturing laboratory
has a set of cutting-edge production and design industrial (5-, 4- and 3-axis milling centers, turning center, turns, high-speed machining center and electrical discharge machining) and dimensional measurement equipment (CMM, laser, profilometer, etc.). CAD/CAM/CAI software is installed on the laboratory’s computers
