LX Laser Extensometers

LX Laser Extensometers are highly accurate, non-contact extensometers. They are ideal for fragile specimens, those susceptible to localized damage, and also specimens that release large amounts of stored energy during breaks. They will meet all the strain measuring needs of materials like plastics, rubber, films, fibers, textiles, and specimens not suited for contacting extensometry.
