  • DYNAMIC SYMMETRY™ - A system that ensures parallel die closing, reducing variation.
  • SMART ALIGNMENT™ - A system that ensures excellent die cavity sealing for better repeatability.
  • SMART SEAL™ - An optional upper die assembly to eliminate the conventional elastomeric seal while maintaining a closed, pressurized cavity for improved long-term data stability and reduced need for torque calibrations.
  • RAPID CHANGE™ - An optional adjustable eccentric option that allows simple and fast oscillation angle changes without the need for re-calibration. (0.5° arc is standard.)
  • Bi-conical cruciform-less dies with optimized groove profiles reduce slippage and improve performance with stiffer stocks.
  • Uniquely designed heaters provide reduced temperature gradients and improved temperature recovery.
  • Independent control to the upper and lower dies provides faster temperature changes for better non-isothermal control.
  • Pressure transducer is standard.
  • Optional automation unit (5 or 112 samples).
  • Optional long life seals available.
  • Optional constant volume sample cutter available.
  • Optional films available.
  • Premier™HC compatable.
