Plastometrex is a technology company formed by a team of materials scientists, all formerly of the University of Cambridge.
The company combines advanced numerical methods with novel hardware systems to create new and revolutionary mechanical testing methods and products.
Plastometrex’s flagship product, the benchtop Indentation Plastometer, is a mechanical test device that extracts accurate metal stress-strain curves from a 5-minute indentation test. The technology can be used to reduce the times and costs associated with metal testing by over 90% whilst unlocking the ability to test small or complex geometries.
Since launching in 2020, the technology is already being used by leading companies and universities across the world, including Element Materials Technology and The University of Oxford.
