Our heating and cooling stages allow to combine thermal and mechanical applications.
Both can be aimed at either conventional observation (0° tilt of the tensile sample)
or EBSD observation (70° tilt of the tensile sample). The spectrum of temperature
lies between -180°C and 450°C.
3- or 4- point bending grips (EBSD compatible)
3- and 4-point bending grips allows to image the ‘edge-on’ of the sample, either
during conventional observation (0° tilt of the sample), or during EBSD observation
(70° tilt of the sample). The dimensions and space between the clamps can be adapted
to your need.
Biaxial grips (EBSD compatible)
Biaxial testing generates more precise simulations of real-world stress states. Therefore
MicroMecha developed the first biaxial grips which are also EBSD compatible, allowing
complex multiaxial stress simulations. Specimen are typically cruciform.
Interchangable load cells
Since not all applications are alike, additional load cells are available to extend
the load range of Proxima. These can easily be switched by the user, guaranteeing
a maximum of flexibility.
