Smart test specimens

Quality, efficiency, reproducibility:

We supply test specimens for
tomorrow's laboratory work today.


Test specimens have an enormous influence on the results and significance of laboratory examinations and tests.

Therefore, we put a high effort and care into the procurement of materials and their processing as well as the analysis and documentation of our test specimens in order to achieve maximum quality and reproducibility.

Free yourself from time-consuming steps of specimen preparation and documentation by using smart specimens from nexiss. At the same time, you gain higher process reliability and free space for the actual test performance and evaluation.

classic - The Standard

Test specimen for direct use

Quality documented and traceable
Our test specimens are manufactured in strict accordance with the corresponding test standards. We deliver them reproducible in documented quality, with appropriate analysis and/or material certificate.

Short delivery times
We keep the most common test specimens in stock. Your order leaves our premises on the following working day and usually reaches you on the 2nd working day after your order.

ready to use - "ready to start testing in 5 minutes".
We deliver these test specimens with an ID marking, ground, cleaned and vacuum packed.
After consultation, we can also sign the test specimens with a customer-specific ID.

smart - The Digital Twin

Test specimen for increasing the quality of test results

Test specimen with digital twin
The data acquisition of the test specimen ID, material properties and its surface 3D profile create a digital twin. Digitization is useful both directly during test execution and for post-processing data access.

Reduce documentation effort
Manual data entry, for example of test number and weight, is no longer necessary. This data is directly available digitally. This is not only timely and efficient, but also avoids transmission errors in particular.

Direct data provision via web application
You can access the data of the smart test specimens directly via the nexiss web application. This is how we make your test specimens really smart!

Evaluation of surface changes
The 3D scan of the entire test surface offers a new dimension in test evaluation. It makes it possible to relate individual material properties to changed surfaces. The second 3D scan after the test has been performed also enables a comparative evaluation of the surface condition based on surface topography, roughness values, removal volumes and maximum height and depth values. This creates certainty and objectivity when evaluating the results in your laboratory.
