The P2M idea is to design and develop a complete multi-functional morphological characterization platform of surfaces with :
- complex shapes
- multi-scale morphologies (nm to mm vertical scale)
- on a range of lateral extensions ranging from microns to cm
Metrological platform consists of a measurement optical system, a touch system and a device with 9 degrees of freedom that will involve operational modules can offer the following options:
- Sclerometriques and topographic measurements
- Analysis of the tribological behavior
- Wettability tests
This equipment is used to conduct tactile and tribological investigations topographic surface based on the process that led to their structuring and texturing. It is dedicated to the characterization of metallic and non-metallic surfaces for a wide range of applications: microfluidics, marking molds or parts against counterfeiting, sensory analysis, tactile and visual control or friction and wear.
The development of this platform relies on the skills of LTDS (Laboratory of Tribology and System Dynamics – Centrale Lyon) and is developed in partnership with ALTIMET.
