Mechanical Differential Strain Gauge 
The differential extensometer is needed for the measurement of the elongation of the linear part of the specimen according international standards (see ISO 37, ISO 527, ASTM D 412, ASTM D 638)

The mechanical extensometer produced by Gibitre has been specifically developed for testing Rubber, Elastomers and Plastic samples and optimized to:
• measure high elongation that can be reached by rubber and thermoplastic specimens
• absorb the energy transmitted to the device when the specimen breaks
• easily change the distance between the clamps (reference length) according to the type of specimen
• adjust the closing force of the tweezers at the base to the type of material to be tested.

Micro extensometer for Tensor Check dynamometer.
This device is used to perform the Elastic Modulus measurements in compliance with the requirements of ISO 527 1-2-3 and ASTM D 638.
The device has the following characteristics:
• 0.1 Micron resolution
• Distance between terminals settable: 50 mm (other sizes available in option)
• Closing force of the tweezers adjustable
• Travel in traction direction: 2 mm
• Working temperature from + 1 ° C to + 60 ° C
• Applicable specimen thickness: between 0 and 10 mm.
Note: this device, useful for the characterization of the modulus of elasticity of the initial stretch of the stress-deformation curve of thermoplastic products, does not replace the differential strain gauges which allow to analyze the curve until the specimen breaks.
Environmental chamber 
Test Chamber for the performance of tests with controlled temperature (between -40°C and +250°C).
The environmental chamber can be manually displaced from the test area to the back of the instrument for testing with or without temperature control.
Differential extensometer to be installed inside the chamber is available.

Integrated Thickness meter 
Thickness meter for direct acquisition of sample thickness in compliance with ISO 23529 and ASTM D 3767 standards.
The device allows you to directly enter in the software the thickness, measured in several points, of the individual specimens and automatically calculate the Cross Section (average or minimum) to be used for calculating the results.
The calculation of the section is carried out on the basis of the calculation formula defined for the type of specimen in use.
The dial gauge tips are interchangeable according to the type of product.
Wide range of grips for traction, compression, peeling, stress relaxation tests for standard or customer-defined tests.

Datagest program 
The Datagest program is the database management tool always installed in combination with all Gibitre instrument-control programs.
The program permits to:
• Select, filter, print, export and analyse the test results stored with all the instruments connected.
• Prepare test procedures by defining the test conditions and the results to be produced
• Set tolerance limits for each product by manual insertion or using the statistical analysis (mean and standard deviation) of saved results
• Prepare multi-instrument test reports

Gibitre Standard SQL Database 
All the Gibitre programs use a database with SQL structure for saving the results.
The database can be installed inside an SQL instance present on the company server or it can be installed on a PC connected to a measuring instrument. The installation of the Microsoft SQL service (Express version) is included in the delivery.

Industry 4.0 integration 
The instrument and the software have been specifically developed to optimize integration with other environments.
The database in SQL format and the Gibitre_Company_Connect program allows you synchronize your company management software with Gibitre database and to speed up the identification of the tests and to use bar-code readers or similar devices.
The automatic logging service permits to send alarm information to the cloud-service platform of Gibitre Instruments in order to optimize the reaction times of the Service Support.

Test report 
Can be printed or saved to pdf in one of the available languages. The format of the Test Report can be customized by the user.
