Tinius Olsen’s VEM 100 series of video extensometer modules are designed to measure higher levels of strain (>10%) in tensile, compression, shear and flexural modes. The units are fully integrated with the testing machine and results-reporting software, supporting multiple
gauge length click and drag placements, strain rate control and real time results during and throughout the test.
The VEM 100 series is directly compatible with all Tinius Olsen testing machine frames. It is mounted using a stabilised carbon fibre arm with built-in X, Y and Z fine positioning adjustment for optimum measuring performance.
The unit can be mounted at the front or rear of a testing machine, left or right in support of operator comfort and efficiency of use. The extensometer on its mounting arm can be quickly moved away from the test area, ensuring full operator access for specimen loading and grip or
accessory changes, then equally quickly swung back into “All the measurements and outputs
are time stamped and can be archived for future reference.” position, locating precisely using the magnetic homing position – simple, precise and quick.
