Gleeble® 3180 System


The Gleeble 3180 is the perfect solution for researchers who require the quality, accuracy, and physical simulation capabilities of a Gleeble system on a more affordable scale. 

The Gleeble 3180 is a flexible thermal-mechanical physical simulation system which can be configured for the following applications:

     •  Weld HAZ simulation
     •  Melting and solidification
     •  Heat treatment
     •  Hot tensile tests
     •  CCT and CHT with deformation
     •  Continuous casting simulation

At the heart of the 3180 are the features for which Gleeble systems are internationally renowned: a closed-loop direct resistance heating system, a closed-loop servo mechanical system, and a Windows® based digital computer control and data acquisition system.

Deformation Dilatometry: 
The 3180 can be equipped to perform CCT work including CCT after deformation. 

Weld HAZ Cycles can be accurately replicated and analyzed to test material weldability and to improve welding procedures.
