WIN-HCU® is the proven software for all Fischer measuring devices for nanoindentation. This software controls the hardness measuring devices and evaluates the signals supplied by the measuring device. The software is intuitive to use and individually configurable – for example, to enable multiple users with different authorizations to be assigned. The software is based on the DIN ISO 14577-1 and ASTM E 2546 standards.

Traceable measurement results.

Simple and guided calibration workflow and Fischer calibration standards

Standard-free and precise measurement.

Nanoindentation based on continuously developed algorithms


Programming and automatic execution of recurring measurement sequences

Convenient evaluation.

Extensive statistical evaluations including statistical process control (SPC)

Direct data export.

Simple data export to a wide range of interfaces, such as quality management systems

Create data reports easily.

Fully customizable reports and creation of individual measurement protocols with just one click


These and many other functions make Win-HCU® the most comprehensive software in the field of nanoindentation:

  • Application setup

      Quick setup of necessary test parameters and characteristics. Option to save settings for later measurements.

  • Clear measuring window

      Quickly understandable graphic display of the measurement process and the measurement results.

  • Clear evaluation window

      The data obtained can be edited in the evaluation window. Among other things, it is possible to quickly switch between parameters and display the touchdown point (zero point).

  • Various display options

      The WIN-HCU® offers various display options for the measurement data. Statistical evaluations, an SPC chart (statistical process control), histograms, probability networks and 3D diagrams of the data can be selected.

  • XY programming

      Measurement campaigns can be programmed for semi-automated measuring.

  • Optional Dynamic Mode

      The dynamic mode enables a complete analysis of the mechanical properties of viscoelastic materials. Such items as ageing processes, cross-linking properties, or the glass transition temperature (Tg) can also be determined or investigated.
