MCR 702 MultiDrive - Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer

The MCR 702 MultiDrive is the most versatile and powerful platform on the market for the dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) of liquid, soft, and solid samples. The device is based on a synchronous EC motor and can be additionally combined with a completely new linear motor. This state-of-the-art linear motor enables DMA in tension, bending, and compression as well as thermomechanical analysis (TMA) with one instrument. Moreover, the synchronous EC motor enables measurements in torsional direction, well-known from the established MCR rheometer series by Anton Paar. In this way DMA in torsion as well as all rheological measurements are possible at the highest level of precision.

This unrivaled 4-in-1 functionality opens up completely new possibilities in dynamic mechanical material characterization.

Advanced Concept for the Highest Flexibility in DMA and Rheometry

The unique combination of linear drive and rotational drive within one measuring device enables true dynamic mechanical analysis in both linear and torsional direction, but also rheological measurements to obtain the particular type of characterization which fits the application of your material best.

Unique Motor Design – The Air Bearing Technology

Due to its design, the air bearings of both the linear and rotational drive provide an extraordinary sensitivity for dynamic mechanical analysis and all kinds of rheological measurements as known from the high quality of the MCR rheometer series.

Precise Force Measurements and a Large Displacement Range

Due to the optimized design and the advanced material selection of the moving magnet motor, the linear drive shows the lowest magnetic hysteresis. This enables highly precise measurements over a broad force range up to 40 N to characterize soft and stiff materials with the highest precision and over a displacement range of 9.4 mm, which is of advantage e.g. for tensile tests.

Displacement Determination with the Highest Resolution

A linear optical encoder is used in the measuring device to determine the displacement. This optical technology allows stable strain measurements with resolutions in the subnanometer range.

Optimized Measuring Systems for Highly Reproducible Results

The innovative design – optimized by using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) – guarantees negligible temperature gradients inside the sample for highly accurate and reliable results. Each measuring system includes an integrated temperature sensor close to the clamped sample to measure the actual sample temperature with the highest reproducibility over the complete temperature range.

Easy Fitting and Automatic Configuration of All Accessories

When changing between measuring systems, the proven QuickConnect coupling provides great ease of use as there is no screwing mechanism or any need of additional alignment procedures. Toolmaster™ is a completely contact-free automatic tool recognition and configuration system to recognize all measuring systems available for MCR 702 MultiDrive. This enables time-saving and error-proof change of measuring systems and accessories without the need to enter the currently used configuration or complex geometry data manually in the software.
