MCR 702e MultiDrive is the most versatile and powerful platform suitable for the dynamic mechanical analysis of solid, soft, and liquid samples. The unique concept enables you to perform dynamic mechanical analysis in bending, tension, compression, and torsion, standard and highly sophisticated rheological measurements as well as thermomechanical analysis (TMA) with one instrument. The modularity of the system allows the integration of a wide range of temperature devices as well as application-specific accessories and measuring systems to cover all requirements of the greatest variety of different applications.

Key features

Two drive units for all of your applications

Two drive units for all of your applications

The combination of an air-bearing-supported upper rotational drive and an air-bearing-supported lower linear drive enables you to perform linear dynamic mechanical analysis using the linear drive and torsional dynamic mechanical analysis using the rotational drive. With one instrument, DMA in tension, torsion, bending, and compression as well as all kinds of rheological investigations and even experiments in thermomechanical analysis can be carried out. The choice of measuring mode depends on your application. Due to the use of a state-of-the-art moving-magnet motor, optical encoder technology, and the renowned EC motor technology from MCR rheometers the concept guarantees highly precise measurements in DMA and rheology.

Control the greatest influence of all – temperature

Control the greatest influence of all – temperature

The convection temperature devices are optimized to generate a homogeneous temperature distribution necessary for an accurate control of the sample temperature. Additionally, low temperature options based on a customized gas chiller option (-90 °C) or liquid nitrogen (-160 °C) can be used for precisely controlled cooling. Furthermore, a controlled relative humidity can be applied to the sample in combination with temperature. Each measuring system includes an integrated temperature sensor with a fixed position close to the clamped sample. In this way the measured temperature directly relates to the actual sample temperature and the highest reproducibility over the entire temperature range is ensured without manual positioning of the sensor. Rely on the high-precision temperature control required for truly accurate results for all kinds of tests.

Benefit from more than 200 accessories for rheology

Benefit from more than 200 accessories for rheology

In addition to classic dynamic mechanical analysis rheological measurements open up the possibility of characterizing the deformation behavior of solids and the flow behavior of liquids. To measure different kinds of samples, you require a variety of different measuring systems, accessories, and temperature devices. With the linear motor unit removed, MCR 702e MultiDrive is ready to be equipped with any measuring geometry, temperature device, and/or application-specific accessory known from the Anton Paar MCR series in order to carry out standard and sophisticated rheological analyses of your sample. 

Special accessories and customized solutions

Special accessories and customized solutions

Special applications demand innovative and customized solutions. Anton Paar, with its in-house development and production team, is able to provide devices and accessories for special applications. MCR 702e Space MultiDrive for example, offers maximized available working space and this facilitates working with accessories and complementary measuring instruments. Additionally, accessories are available for characterizing solids which are immersed in a liquid or which have to be characterized at temperatures up to 1000 °C. Furthermore, systems are available for the DMA of solid circular bars in tension and torsion as are shafts suitable to be combined with any disposable or customized geometry. For testing powdery samples Anton Paar offers material pockets in combination with the typical DMA measuring systems in bending mode. Do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements and find a customized solution for your measurement task.

Enjoy the convenient setup and ease of use

Enjoy the convenient setup and ease of use

Whichever choices you make, all temperature devices and measuring geometries are swiftly and easily integrated and exchanged, and your MCR 702e MultiDrive reliably adapts to each new setup. Additionally, the QuickConnect function allows one-hand connection of the measuring systems and ensures fast, convenient system changes without the use of a screwing mechanism. The patented Toolmaster™ feature automatically recognizes and configures all connected devices and measuring geometries. Additionally, the use of integrated temperature sensors as well as fully automated procedures for an optimum alignment (ZeroGap and ZeroAngle) ensure precise measurements without the need for any manual adjustments of measuring systems or temperature sensors.

One software for all demands – multifunctional and user-friendly

One software for all demands – multifunctional and user-friendly

The intuitive RheoCompass™ software helps you find the predefined or customized test templates you need, customize tests and analysis definitions, export your data, and generate reports. The software offers a broad variety of predefined but individually adaptable analysis methods, e.g. determination of glass transition temperature or time-temperature superposition. Due to the use of a Microsoft SQL 2012 database managing and retrieving data is as easy as generating it. Filter the data, e.g. by year, batch number, or operator, and display it within seconds.
