The extensometer models AE300 and AE500 are suitable for almost all samples with an initial gauge length from 10mm. Their low clamping forces combined with high measurement accuracy makes them highly suitable even for small, notch sensitive test samples.
The AE series can be connected to partly or fully automatic testing machines and used with all types of grips. The strain can be measured from the elastic range to fracture for almost all types of samples. When used in combination with the transverse models, the AE extensometers are highly suitable for testing the deep-drawing properties of thin sheets.
