To determine the suitability of a material for an application where it is under load, measuring its elongation is important. Measuring elongation enables determination of the elastic modulus (reversible elongation in the elastic region) by measuring the small initial elongation range, and determination of elongation at specimen failure, by measuring larger irreversible elongation in the plastic region. Shimadzu’s SIE-560A series automatic extensometers accomplish both of these measurements with high accuracy, and provide automated functions that increase testing efficiency and test reproducibility. Ideal for testing a wide variety of materials, including metallic materials, plastics, and composites, the SIE-560A series complies with ISO 527, JIS K 7161, and ASTM D638 standards for plastics tensile testing. In addition, the SIE-560A series supports strain-rate controlled metallic material tensile testing measurements specified in ISO 6892, JIS Z 2241, and ASTM E4
Features Compliant with Plastic and Metallic Material Testing Standards
Functions of the SIE-560A series, including the automatic detection of the mid-point between upper and lower grips, the automatic return to a specified gauge position, and the automatic release of specimens after testing is finished, ensure that routine testing can be performed conveniently and reproducibly.
The SIE-560A series high-precision measurements are the result of a high-precision magnetic induction linear sensor, an ultra-high precision strain gauge sensor (on SIE-560SA models only), and a newly developed digital strain engine.

Given that cellulose nanofibers（CNFs）offer attractive physical characteristics, such as light weight, strength, and hardness, they not only enable materials with advanced functionality, but are expected to be used as a reinforcing material that can reduce the weight of composite materials.
Latest issue of Shimadzu Journal, featuring Materials Science, has come out.
This issue focuses on Materials Science particularly on lithium-ion batteries (LiBs). It starts with two customer interviews in which users discuss their relationship with Shimadzu.
Hydrogen Energy Analysis Solutions for Quality Control of Hydrogen
Impurities in hydrogen production affect subsequent industrial processes. Strict purity standards have been defined for hydrogen used in fuel cells (ISO 14687-2019). This is because if hydrogen contains carbon monoxide, sulfur components, etc., the catalyst of the fuel cell will be damaged. The hydrogen fuel standard for FCVs (ISO 14687 TypeII GradeD) defines many items to be controlled, and Shimadzu analytical instruments can play a role in analyzing these items.
Shimadzu at IIW 2022
Shimadzu is honored to join the IIW 2022 International Conference on Welding and Joining (IIW 2022) as a Platinum Sponsor. Visit our booth and attend our technical program at IIW 2022!
Shimadzu has released the MIV-X Ultrasonic Optical Flaw Detector
The MIV-X visualizes and digitizes flaws (peeling, cracks, and voids) in parts and multi-materials in aircraft, automobiles, and electrical and electronic equipment using our proprietary ultrasonic optical flaw detection technology, which acquires an image of the propagation of ultrasonic on the surface of an object.
