Strain measurement for materials testing is the sole business at Epsilon Technology. Over thirty years of experience have gone into the development of their products. At Epsilon's Jackson, Wyoming, shop, they design and build extensometers for testing around the world. Extensometers are available for testing almost all engineering materials, including: elastomers, plastics, composites, metals, ceramics, geomaterials (e.g. rock, concrete, and asphalt), and biomaterials including bone. There are models for tiny and delicate samples, including relatively fine wire, up to massive metal samples and large rock cores. The huge variety of models covers nearly every type of test as well, including: tensile, compression, bend, fracture mechanics, and cyclic strain controlled tests like low cycle fatigue. Many of Epsilon Technology's extensometers are capable of relatively high frequency operation also.
- World’s largest extensometer manufacturer: Epsilon’s focus exclusively on extensometers and related items has lead to this growth. With sales in more than 60 countries, they have become the recognized choice in many of these.
- Broadest product line anywhere: Over 31 models available in many 1000s of variations. Epsilon's focus on helping customers has led to the development of models to cover nearly any test method.
- Expertise – in both testing and extensometers: Epsilon has several degreed engineers. This includes engineers with advanced degrees in materials as well as mechanical engineering. Epsilon's most senior engineer has over 34 years of experience designing extensometers and materials test equipment, as well as test method knowledge. They have engineers who have worked in test labs using extensometers and are dedicated to improving their quality systems. They have an in-house machine shop led by a tool and die maker with 40 years experience. The many technicians who build Epsilon's products are also highly experienced.
- Responsive – talk to their experts anytime: When you call Epsilon, you can expect to talk to a degreed engineer with expertise in materials, testing and extensometers. You have access to this same expertise if you have technical questions or problems. If you contact Epsilon Technology by email, they promise a quick response. If you ever need repairs, their service is prompt. They are here to help.
- Unrivaled quality: The technicians who build Epsilon's devices understand the company’s commitment to quality. Every unit is checked a second time by a quality control person, before shipment. Epsilon is undertaking a significant push to keep improving their quality system. Epsilon bought a laser interferometer for increasing the accuracy of much of what they measure. This allows calibration of extensometer calibrators as well as extensometers. With an accuracy of 0.5 parts per million, it approaches the measurement accuracy of national standards.
Epsilon Technology's instruments stand up to the toughest testing.
