SIE-560A/560SA Automatic Extensometers

Automatic Extensometer SIE-560 [Standard Type] / 560S [High-Precision Type]

To determine the suitability of a material for an application where it is under load, measuring its elongation is important. Measuring elongation enables determination of the elastic modulus (reversible elongation in the elastic region) by measuring the small initial elongation range, and determination of elongation at specimen failure, by measuring larger irreversible elongation in the plastic region. Shimadzu’s SIE-560A series automatic extensometers accomplish both of these measurements with high accuracy, and provide automated functions that increase testing efficiency and test reproducibility. Ideal for testing a wide variety of materials, including metallic materials, plastics, and composites, the SIE-560A series complies with ISO 527, JIS K 7161, and ASTM D638 standards for plastics tensile testing. In addition, the SIE-560A series supports strain-rate controlled metallic material tensile testing measurements specified in ISO 6892, JIS Z 2241, and ASTM E4

Function Buttons

Functions of the SIE-560A series, including the automatic detection of the mid-point between upper and lower grips, the automatic return to a specified gauge position, and the automatic release of specimens after testing is finished, ensure that routine testing can be performed conveniently and reproducibly.

Integration of the SIE-560A series into Trapezium X materials testing software eliminates the trouble of having to go back and forth between the software and the test system.
In addition, the smart controller on AG-X plus test frames provides the flexibility to operate the extensometer next to the test system.

High Measurement Precision

SIE-560A series high-precision measurements

The SIE-560A series high-precision measurements are the result of a high-precision magnetic induction linear sensor, an ultra-high precision strain gauge sensor (on SIE-560SA models only), and a newly developed digital strain engine.
