Since 2019 ELS started to develop and sell new optical laboratory equipment, characterised by the fact that all the measurements are made with no contact with the specimen. The new machines show an innovative design, both in their hardware and in their software. The new instruments are designed to reach higher performances than before in the thermomechanical field. For example, they can reproduce complex industrial firing cycles (flash heating and flash cooling) and the heating microscope can run up to four simultaneous analyses.
