DYNAMIC MECHANICAL ANALYSIS



Dynamic Mechanical Analysis measures the mechanical properties of materials as a function of time, temperature, and frequency. The Q800 DMADynamic Mechanical Analysis instrument incorporates unique technology to provide the ultimate in performance, versatility, and ease-of-use. State-of-the-art non-contact, linear drive motor technology in our Dynamic Mechanical AnalysisDMA instruments provide precise stress control. Ultra sensitive optical encoder Dynamic Mechanical Analysistechnology is used to measure strain and air bearing technology insures virtually friction-free movement. The combination of these technologies sets the Q800 Dynamic Mechanical Analysisapart from competitive instruments that use conventional stepper motors, LVDT strain measurement devices, and mechanical springs. The Q800 Dynamic Mechanical AnalysisDMA instrument operates over a wide temperature range (-150 to 600°C) and provides multiple modes of deformation including dual/single cantilever and 3-point bending, tension, compression, and shear. The clamps are individually calibrated for data accuracy and the elegant but simple design facilitates sample mounting.
