Lloyd Instruments Introduces VE1 Extensometer

April 19, 2018

Lloyd Instrument’s VE1 extensometer offers high resolution measurement, simple preparations and an intuitive user interface. The video extensometer measures longitudinal strain between two applied lines at a rate of up to 100 Hz. The strain data is synchronized and transferred to NEXYGENPlus software.

Strains from 20 um/m up to more than 1000% can be measured. System calibration provides measurements from a few millimeters to multiple meters.

The VE1 video extensometer saves images during the tensile test and can be used until sample break. It is available in six sizes, has a large application area and can test a wide range of materials including metals, rigid plastics, composites, ceramics, thick films and more in both ambient and non-ambient temperature conditions.


Truck Scale Conversions Save Money and Time

April 12, 2018

Truck scales don’t last forever. Sometimes decks wear out or a mechanical scale needs to be converted to a more modern design. In some cases you don’t need an entirely new truck scale. We have been able to save multiple customers money and limit down-time by doing an overhaul on an existing truck scale and upgrading parts that need to be replaced instead of tearing out the entire scale and replacing it with a new one. Call us today, and we can make a site visit to help you determine the best course of action for your older vehicle or truck scale.
