Dynamic Systems Inc. (DSI) designs and manufactures equipment for dynamic thermal-mechanical testing of materials and physical simulation of processes.
Typically, a sample of material is heated and mechanically worked while various performance parameters of interest are measured and recorded for later analysis. After the simulation or test is done, the microstructure of the material may also be examined.
The most widely known machine produced by DSI for physical simulation is the Gleeble® System. The Gleeble System is produced in a number of different sizes and configurations. These machines typically have a high speed heating system, a servo hydraulic system and a computer control and data acquisition system.
