X and hourglass

The aXial version of FVX products allows non-contact measurement in one direction (axial or transverse) of the deformation, elongation or displacement of markers placed on the surface of a sample and/or a structure/ parts during mechanical stress. The Hourglass option allows you to measure a reduction in the diameter of an axisymmetric sample without prior marking of the sample.
It is therefore possible to calculate the Young's modulus with excellent precision until failure, for low and high speeds (500 mm/min and more).
The software measures deformation or elongation in real time and sends information to machine control software, which makes deformation regulation possible. The user also has the possibility of retrieving, via an analog or digital signal, the force and position of the machine crosshead and of graphically plotting the deformation/force/position curves, etc. It is also possible to save images, videos and data in a .csv or .dat file to be able to process the data later.
