Extensometry

Also available is a specialized range of precision extensometers that cover all areas of strain measurements such as automatic, video and contact.

Software

Testometric provides a comprehensive metals test software with pre-calculations compliant with international standards. These calculations include strain, load rate control and stress, as well as applicable calculations such as Young’s modulus, yield stress, proof stress, UTS and all strain value including poissons ratio and so on.
