Features of EC-Twist DMTA


  • EC-Twist can be used to analyze solutions, melts, solid bars, films, foils or reactive resins
  • Performed on highly diverse samples for full flexibility ensured by a wealth of different measuring systems and temperature devices
  • DMTA tests in torsion or extension, as well as shear viscosity determination and extensional rheological tests Fully digital instrument employing the latest DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology
  • High-precision air bearing, including a patented normal force sensor

Ease of use

  • Toolmaster™: Patented system for automatic recognition of measuring systems and accessories
  • Quickfit coupling: Easy, one-hand measuring system connection in both drive units
  • T-Ready™: Reduced waiting times by detecting and signalling sample temperature equilibration
  • Wide range of measuring systems for all kinds of applications
  • USB connection to computer/software
  • Ethernet connection for remote control of the instrument through the company network
  • RheoCompass™: User-friendly application software

High precision

  • Decoupling of sample pretension (stepper motor) and excitation (EC motor) considerably increases the system's precision for solid bar measurements
  • EC-Twist's peak performance is based on technological highlights such as the air-bearing-supported, synchronous EC motor, TruRate™ sample-adaptive motor control, TruStrain™ real-time position control or the patented normal force sensor

Wide range of accessories

  • Devices for temperature control ranging from -150 °C to 1000 °C
  • Special accessories for DMA and DMTA measurements, rheo-optics, magneto- and electrorheology, interfacial rheology, UV curing and many other applications
