Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thank you very much for the pleasant and trustful cooperation this year, which we are able to conclude successfully again despite all the adversities.

This year we support the COVAX vaccination campaign by UNICEF and the Kindernothilfe (supporting children in need) with donations.

Happy Birthday StrainScope!

In April 2011, the first StrainScope was put into operation. Since then, more than 200 StrainScope systems have been delivered all over the world. Over the years, the design has evolved and the technology has also been constantly improved.

We are excited about the next 10 years!

ilis academy

Originally, we wanted to celebrate the opening of the new premises of the ilis academy already last year. Unfortunately, the Corona virus pandemic threw a spanner in the works, and this year, too, hardly any face-to-face events will be possible.

But postponed is not canceled and so we are already looking forward to the first events on the topics of stress measurement, color measurement and batch calculation. As soon as the situation allows it again, we will invite to it.

StrainScope Pharma Tester

The new and unique StrainScope Pharma Tester has been specially developed for the fast and objective measurement of residual stresses in pharmaceutical glass packaging such as syringes, vials and ampoules.

An automatic device rotates the test specimen and thus reliably and reproducibly identifies the maximum value of the residual stress – in just a few seconds.

StrainScope Optics Tester

With the StrainScope Optics Tester you can measure residual stresses with high spatial resolution precisely and reproducibly – in real time and including orientation (azimuth).

The telecentric optics enable the measurement of thick materials without parallax errors and the measurement of residual stresses in materials with intrinsic birefringence.

Goodbye StrainMatic!

Since 2004, the StrainMatic has enabled reliable and fast measurement of residual stresses in applications in which previously only manually operated polariscopes and polarimeters were used. Over the years, exactly one hundred StrainMatic systems for a wide variety of applications have been delivered to well-known customers in industry and research all over the world.

But as the saying goes, the better is the enemy of the good. Most measurement tasks can now be performed better, less expensive and even in real time with the StrainScope or the StrainScope Flex. We have therefore decided to concentrate in future entirely on the development and distribution of the StrainScope when it comes to residual stress measurement.

Of course, we will continue to offer our usual service, for example regular maintenance on our premises or at your site. However, we will have to restrict service for the older StrainMatic M2 and M3 model series and some older StrainMatic M4 models in the future. Here we offer our customers attractive offers for migration to the StrainScope.
