DIC Q-400, optical measuring device
The Digital 3D Image Correlation System Q-400 is an optical measuring device for true full-field, non-contact, three-dimensional measurement of shape, displacements and strains on components and structures made from almost any material.
The Q-400 system is used for determination of three-dimensional material properties in tensile, torsion, bending or combined tests. In addition, deformation and strain analysis can be applied to fatigue tests, fracture mechanics, FEA validation, and much more.
- non-contact measuring method
- display of results in real time
- measurement of the displacement and deformation of a surface, not a point
- compensation of the object movement relative to the measuring system during the control process
- high sensitivity to the movements (in fractions of a micron)
- stitching the measurement results not into a set of images, but into a unified three-dimensional picture
- quick and simple automated calibration procedure
- open data format of the measuring results
