- An extensometer is a device that is used to measure changes in the length of an object.
- It is useful for stress-strain measurements and tensile tests. Its name comes from "extension-meter".
- The video extensometer PC can be directly connected to the testing machine via ... memory zones are defined around each target values in the Frame Buffer.
With recent developments and improvements in video technology and image analysis software, manufacturers are focused on video extensometers to provide precise measurement for a number of specific applications. The growing concerns of high precision and high accuracy during the test in various sectors across the world is generating the need for the video extensometer, which is efficiently driving the video extensometer market.
The demand for video extensometer is continuously growing in the manufacturing industries, clinical research, and the laboratories due to several benefits offered by the video extensometer such as no contact with sample, high resolution, and high accuracy. There is a high need of the video extensometers for determination of physical properties of the high modulus samples such as composites, metals, high elongation materials, delicate or thin specimens, strained controlled testing, and crack opening in various laboratories and R&D. Due to this factor, the video extensometer market is expected to witness significant growth rates in the coming years.
Apart from this, there are various types of extensometer in the market, but as there are improvements in the computer software’s and the video technology, the new generation of video extensometer is widely used all over the globe is one of the significant factors which drives the growth of video extensometer market.
Video Extensometer are an attractive replacement for contact extensometers and strain gauges
Rapid adoption of Video Extensometer is witnessed over contact extensometers owing to adverse impact of latter on test results or accuracy. Video Extensometer are used and rapidly adopted due to growing need of precise and accurate results in determination of various parameters in the samples. Manufacturers are focused on introducing advanced versions of video extensometer to improve the quality of the results offered.
- For example, in 2018, IMETRUM LTD., the UK based manufacturer of the video extensometer, launched the Universal video extensometer with video analysis software, Compatibility with a wide range of test frames, and can deliver resolutions up to 3 micro strain / 10 nanometers.
- For example, in 2018, Epsilon Technology Corp, the US based manufacturer of the video extensometer, launched precision optical video extensometer, with data rates up to 3000 Hz, high camera resolution for better visual ability.
These parameters are fueling the growth of the video extensometer market across the globe.
