OPTICAL MEASURING SYSTEMS FOR DIC MEASUREMENT AND ANALYSIS

Our state-of-the-art optical measuring systems are controlled by MERCURY RT software developed by Sobriety. These systems are based on digital image correlation technique (DIC) and serve for the determination of distinct material properties, vibrography analysis, and component testing, even at high temperature.


AREAS OF APPLICATION

The optical measuring systems are designed for test rigs, test centres or academic purposes. They are applied in industrial production, civil engineering and quality control.

Measurement methodology allows for the measurement of high strain rates, high-speed testing, vibration measurement, FEA analysis, crack propagation, dynamic testing, and quality control.

The system is designed for examining specimens of metals, wires, foils, wood, composites, fabrics, nanofibrous structures, elastomers, tissues, plastic, biomaterials, cords, ropes, construction and ceramic materials.

Our solutions

OPTICAL MEASURING SYSTEMS

The measuring systems equipped with the MERCURY RT are compatible with a wide variety of industrial and DSLR cameras. With the right choice of lens, the system is suitable for any application ranging from microscopic to macroscopic dimensions.

Mevix

The MEVIX video-extensometer is specially designed for industrial use and offers protection against mechanical damage, dusty environment, and unauthorized manipulation. Any specified configuration of the system allows for certification by a calibration laboratory on demand.

Video-extensometer for measuring of specimen with non-standard geometry or specimen that significantly change its thickness. With 3D space scanning, we can eliminate movements out of the measurement plane.
