Features and Benefits

  • Non-contact, friction-free motor delivers forces from 0.001 N to 2 N enabling measurements on the widest range of samples from soft compressible elastomers to stiff composite materials.
  • Wide-range, high-resolution measurement transducer accommodates sample lengths up to 26 mm, a measuring range of ±2.5 mm with resolution as low as 15 nm for an accurate dimensional change measurement.
  • Advanced testing modes of Modulated TMA (MTMATM), Dynamic TMA, Creep and Stress Relaxation extend capabilities and empower users with even more valuable information about the mechanical behavior of materials.
  • Convenient Mechanical Cooling Accessory (MCA 70) provides controlled cooling to -70°C without the cost or hassle of liquid nitrogen.
  • Powerful TRIOS software delivers exceptional user experience and ease-of-use in a combined package for instrument control, data analysis, and reporting, reducing training times and raising productivity to new levels.
  • New, innovative, “app-style” touch screen puts instrument functionality simply One-Touch-Away™, enhancing usability and making it easier than ever to get great data.
  • Every instrument comes with a commitment to quality backed by the industry’s ONLY five-year furnace warranty for peace of mind.
