Powder filling machine

Used to study filling of materials

Measuring systems, CMO, ARAMIS

Intended for non-contact measurement of deformation and elongation. Used in combination with load apparatus for using digital images to examine the material's response to mechanical loading

Measuring systems, Zimmer 100D

Intended for non-contact measurement of motion. Used in combination with loading equipment, etc. to measure an object's movement at both slow and rapid processes. Two separate channels, which allows the measurement of relative motion.

Induction heaters, EDF Sinac 5 SH

Designed for inductive heating of small specimens. Used in combination with load equipment to allow for testing at elevated temperature. The temperature is controlled with pyrometer and control.
