The EPLEXOR series up to 500N can enable the dynamic (or static) mechanical characterization of wide range of sample including polymers and elastomers, metals, ceramics, biomaterials, foods, etc. Its modular design of the high force DMA/DMTA systems also can measure tension, bending, compression and shearing model of samples. All testing machines in this series are conform to standards such as DIN 53513, ISO 6721/1, ISO 6721/4, ISO 6721/5, ISO 6721/6, ISO 4664, ASTM D4065, and ASTM D4473.


Temperature range -160°C to 1500°C (temperature range covered by three furnaces)
Frequency range 0.01 Hz to 100 Hz; optional 0.0001 Hz and 200 Hz
Static force range up to 500 N and optional 1500 N
Dynamic force range ± 500 N, ± 150 N,  ± 100 N, ± 25 N
Force sensor interchangeable; nominal forces available from ±10 N to ±2500 N
Blade springs counteract the static forces and allow for independent superposition of the dynamic forces
Static displacement 60 mm
Dynamic displacement available strain sensors: ± 1.5 mm, ± 3 mm and ± 6 mm
(depending on the EPLEXOR model)
Supplementary analysis modes creep, relaxation, fatigue, heat build-up, curing, tensile tests, rolling resistance of tires, tackifying
