METRAVIB Xpander is an automated specimen handling system dedicated to Dynamic Mechanical Analyzers of DMA+ series.
Xpander allows DMA test campaigns to run continuously and autonomously without any operator intervention.
Xpander has been designed to significantly increase the number of tests performed by METRAVIB DMA instruments in various test modes: compression, tension and shear. Tests are performed around the clock and no longer require the presence of an operator. Xpander's flexibility makes possible to accommodate with material specimens of various shapes and sizes.
The specimen handling automation targeted since the original design of DMA+ series ensures keeping high performance in their robotic mode.
As a pioneer in the automation of dynamic testing, METRAVIB has been supplying the leaders of the rubber and tire industries with robotic Dynamic Mechanical Analyzers for more than 15 years.
