Gleeble 3500

Model: 
3500
Make: 

The Geeble 3500 is a computer controlled thermal and mechanical testing system. A combination of controlled heating/cooling with tensile or compressive deformation can be programmed. The user can create, run and analyse data from thermal-mechanical tests on small machined samples made from real materials coupled to physical simulation programmes. This enables many thermo-mechanical behaviour situations to be tested very accurately e.g. during manufacturing, fabrication or in use.
