The Discovery DMA 850 dynamic mechanical analyzer is the newest product in this company’s line of Discovery Series thermal analysis instruments.  The instrument is reportedly the only DMA available to feature frictionless air bearing supports, providing the highest force sensitivity to 0.1 mN and widest continuous travel range of any commercial DMA at 25 mm. A linear optical encoder can ensure stable, accurate, high-resolution displacement measurement across the full travel range and enables displacement control of 5 nm.

New DirectStrain™ and intelligent autoranging test controls reportedly help to eliminate the guesswork involved in selecting test settings that will be successful when testing over a range of temperature and stiffness.
