TA Instruments: Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer
April 10, 2002
TA Instruments has introduced the Q800 DMA, a sixth generation analyzer that provides advanced mechanical property measurements on a broad variety of viscoelastic materials from -150 to 600C. Rugged and reliable, the new analyzer uses a proprietary non-contact linear motor to provide precise stress control. Optical encoder technology delivers unmatched sensitivity and resolution in strain detection, and state-of-the-art low friction air bearing technology completes a system that provides superior performance compared to traditional designs that employ LVDT technology, stepper motors and mechanical springs.
