Miniature deformation rig MITTER

Text

Miniature deformation rig MITTER developed purposely for efficient testing of functional thermomechanical properties of thin Ni-Ti filaments in tension. The MITTER rig consists of a stepping motor, 100 N load cell, electrically isolated grips, Peltier furnace, laser micrometer for strain measurement and special electronics allowing to send controlled electric power pulse to heat the Ni-Ti wire up to the melting point and perform simultaneously electric resistance measurement.
