Displacement Measurements

Optical metrology analyzes the mechanical properties and behavior of all kinds of materials in various test scenarios. GOM's ARAMIS systems can be integrated into existing test environments, test benches, and testing machines. The non-contact sensors measure full-field 3D strain and deformation of soft and rigid materials under mechanical or thermal load. Thus, conventional extensometers and strain gauges can easily be replaced by GOM's real-time 3D surface deformation analysis systems.


When to use Traditional Displacement Monitors

  • In product design, for wall thickness and reinforcements, etc.
  • To fulfill all requirements regarding product safety and reliability
  • To provide long-term benefits by gaining know-how for future projects
  • To provide essential information for calculating realistic models in simulation processes and virtual test programs

How can Digital Image Correlation Replace Displacement Monitors?

The ARAMIS system, mounted on a material testing machine, offers the ability to quickly calculate all material properties according to common ASTM and ISO standards.

The ARAMIS Kiosk Mode offers a simplified interface for test machine operators to easily collect and analyze the data according to common standards. This automated process reduces test lead time and operator variability.
