Able to adapt to normal fluctuations of environmental conditions in lab and compatible with testing machines that uses ±10 V analog input, AVE 2 measures both modulus and strain to failure for diverse materials. Fully integrated device, which utilizes real-time 490 Hz data rate while achieving 1 micron accuracy, reduces errors from thermal and lighting variations common in most labs and can be used for strain measurement with Digital Image Correlation (DIC).
Suited for use on any load testing system, Model 3549 is available for use to 1,600°C and mounts on included slide bracket. Gauge length is automatically set prior to mounting on test specimen, which allows for hot mounting after thermal equilibrium has been reached. User can set contact force against test specimen, allowing even and repeatable contact force while also limiting contact force induced errors. Design reduces influence from nominal external vibrations. Read More
Meeting ISO 9513, ASTM E83, and ISO 527-1 (2011) requirements, AutoX750 is used to determine such calculations as modulus, offset yield, and plastic (non-proportional) elongation to failure during materials testing routines. Accuracy and travel make this product suited for tensile and flexure testing of various materials, including composites, metals, and plastics. Such features as automatic gauge length positioning and attachment to test specimen further lend to productivity. Read More
Suited for any application requiring measurement of linear strain, universal MFX 500 is used to determine calculations including modules, offset yield, and plastic (non-proportional) elongation to failure. Unit is controlled via USB interface and Instron 3300 and 5500 Series testing machines with Bluehill® 2 software. Featuring roller style mounting, unit provides resolution of 0.1 µm and meets ISO 9513, ASTM E83, and EN10002-1/ISO 6892 requirements. Read More
Model videoXtens extensometer is capable of simultaneously measuring longitudinal and transverse strain and is used for measurement of r and n values to ISO 10113 and ISO 10275, respectively, on sheet steel. It is utilized in materials testing applications where contact with specimen is impractical and includes software to record real-time video stream of test. Extensometer complies with Class 1 of ISO 9513 and B2 of ASTM E83. Read More
Along with integrated software that facilitates setup and consistent calibration, advanced video extensometer (AVE) uses digital camera and real-time image processing to make strain measurements on material test samples. Non-contact measurement design ensures extensometer has no influence on specimen, eliminating possibility of damage. Solid-state unit is available with 3 fields of view and transverse strain measurement capabilities. Read More
