DMA 50 desktop series

DMA 50 is desktop DMA offering a high force range and outstanding flexibility from glass transition determination to immersed tests, which makes them thermomechanical testing platforms.

Main assets

  • High force: 25 / 50 Newtons (peak)
  • Broad frequency range: from 1E-5Hz to 200 Hz
  • Broad temperature range: from -150°C to 600°C
  • Analysis of specimens with sizes representative of the materials structure
  • High performance auto-tension mode (coupled static/dynamic control) for film and 3-points bending modes
  • Thermal chamber with window
  • Reversible frame
  • Specimens immersion possible with all test modes at no extra cost
  • Easy to use
  • Can be used with a single power line connection
  • Low price
