MTS Acumen™ Test System DMA Capabilities

MTS enhanced its portfolio of polymer test solutions by extending Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) capabilities to MTS Acumen Electrodynamic Test Systems. The system can be used to perform detailed studies of the damping properties of polymers, plastics, rubber, thermoplastic and thermosetting resins, composites, and related viscoelastic materials.

The MTS DMA testing solutions include a suite of software for dynamic characterization of viscoelastic materials, and in addition to its industry-leading DMA package, this software can also perform Fatigue & Fracture, Durability, Tension/Compression, Flex/Bend, Static Deflection, and even FDA Regulatory Tests for Biomaterials.

With DMA software available on MTS Acumen Systems, researchers now have a precision tool for performing DMA testing at lower forces and very small displacements.
