OAK RIDGE, Tenn. – June 29, 2017 –Nanomechanics Inc., the world’s leading provider of nano-mechanical testing equipment, announced the establishment of the Advanced Nanomechanical Characterization Centre (ANCC) in Hyderabad, India. The ANCC is a joint technology development centre, established with the prestigious International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI).

“ARCI is at the forefront of materials research,” said John Swindeman, CEO at Nanomechanics, Inc. “We are looking forward to co-managing this development center. It will bring Nanomechanics’ latest instrumentation to ARCI and will utilize the expertise of ARCI in advancing the fundamental understanding of materials research.”

The overall objective of the ANCC is to demonstrate the unique capabilities of Nanomechanics’ instruments and to enable fundamental and applied research in the area of small scale and surface mechanical characterization. This will lead to solutions to engineering problems, accelerated technology development and commercialization.

“ARCI is excited to join hands with Nanomechanics in the development of cutting-edge nanomechanical testing methodologies,” said Dr. G. Padmanabham, director at ARCI. “There is great interest among the Indian scientific community for such tools and the ANCC will certainly accelerate the growth of the nanomechanical testing marketplace in India.”

“As of this date, Nanomechanics’ has conducted its first joint workshop with ARCI and it was tremendously successful,” said Warren Oliver, Ph.D., president at Nanomechanics, Inc.
