Polariscope Strain Viewer

Polariscope Strain Viewer

Product Description

Intel Technologies Glass & Plastic Polariscope – Strain Viewer is the excellent and pretty effective testing device that’s used to measure the residual stresses and strains which might be added during the manufacturing process of the products that seriously impacts the strength of the product. These effects may be harmful as it able to contribute to the product’s failure in service or it could be beneficial, as for example in the inducement of compressive stresses within the surface layers of toughened glass to increase its strength in service.

A polariscope is a qualitative tool that uses polarized light to reveal strain patterns in transparent or translucent objects. Strainoptics offers several trendy  models of polariscope (strain viewers), starting from a small, transporatble unit to large, modular testing instrument that may be free-standing, installed on a wall, on a tabletop, or maybe on a production line.
Polariscope is made of transparent glass or plastics, is based upon the photoelastic technique which involves the passing of polarized light through the product and interpreting, qualitatively or quantitatively, the resulting optical interference pattern. In the case of glass products, it is usually the residual stresses which are measured whilst in the case of plastics molding, casting or extrusions it is the strains which generally are of importance. The testing instrument is manufactured by considering relevant parameters and various standards that are introduced by standardized and reputed authorities.
