MTS offers an extensive selection of high-performance axial extensometers for material testing. These extensometers provide superior linearity, repeatability, hysteresis, and ease of use. These extensometers are equipped with innovative technology that reduces activation force and increases precision.
MTS pioneered, perfected, and patented the iconic cross-flexure design which ensures true center point bending. Precision foil strain gages are bonded to the MTS cross-flexure to form a fully active 4-arm Wheatstone bridge.
The zero-set pin or zero stop allows for effortless set-up. While built-in over-travel protection provides repeatable accurate data from test initiation through specimen failure. MTS extensometers are built to last and provide the high-quality measurements for years.
