Capable of evaluating the mechanical characteristics of materials, the Thermomechanical Analyzers are applicable to a number of measurement methods for a variety of samples. The Thermomechanical Analyzer is capable of measurement using the total expansion method, while the uses the differential expansion method.
Features of Thermomechanical Analyzer
- The multifunctional, which uses the total expansion method, is capable of accommodating every mode for samples with a variety of shapes (such as rods, films, and fibers), and for different types of measurements. For more accurate measurement of thermal expansion for ceramics and glass, the Thermomechanical Analyzer 60H, which uses the differential expansion method, provides accurate results into the high temperature range.
- A new high-accuracy, low drift displacement sensor has been adopted. Thanks to high-accuracy digital displacement sensors, measurement accuracy with the Thermomechanical Analyzer is dramatically improved in comparison to conventional TMA, which uses displacement sensors (differential transformers). At the same time, the wide ± 5 mm range (twice that of our conventional instruments) delivers high-accuracy TMA (thermomechanical analysis) covering from minute to significant deformations.
