Dynamic Systems Gleeble

Dynamic Systems Inc. (DSI) designs and manufactures equipment for dynamic thermal-mechanical testing of materials and physical simulation of processes.
Samples of material are heated and mechanically worked while various performance parameters of interest are measured and recorded for analysis. After the simulation or test is done, the microstructure of the material may also be examined.

The most widely known machine produced by DSI for physical simulation is the Gleeble® System. The Gleeble System is produced in a number of different sizes and configurations . These machines typically have a high-speed heating system, a servo hydraulic system and a computer control and data acquisition system. Read more at www.gleeble.com/
