awarded Distribution of MatchID Digital Image Correlation software
Adept Turnkey's Managing Director Marc Fimeri is
"happy and proud to announce our new partnership with MatchID
DIC software. MatchID have selected Adept Turnkey to
supply and support their world class Digital Image Correlation software
in the Oceania region. We are excited and look forward to the opportunity
to provide this world leading DIC software and to remove any risk
or integration complications for our
customers by expertly matching the software to our very wide selection
of cameras and associated imaging products."
MatchID MetrologyBeyond Colors, N.V. - a spin-off
company of the University of Leuven, offers solutions in imaging
techniques for strain measurement, Finite Element Analysis model
validation and automated identification of mechanical material properties.
Founder and the Managing Director of MatchID says "Adept Turnkey
is a dynamic company with a heart for smart engineering and a key
focus on carefully selected products. Moreover, they bring to us
complimentary experience from both a low-speed and high-speed imaging
As a measurement tool, Digital Image Correlation (DIC)
is a newly accepted cutting-edge technique used in both industry
and academia. DIC allows full field, contactless 3D measurement
of deformations at the surface of any type of material and under
arbitrary loading. The technique combines ease-of-use with great
o From microscale (SEM, AFM) to very large fields of view (>
o From low-speed quasi-static testing to ultra-high-speed imaging
o From deformations at the small strain level (~50 µm/m) up
to the highest strains encountered
Nowadays, DIC is still too often used in a qualitative manner rather
than as a metrological tool, e.g. to detect strain localization,
to detect crack formation or to visualize some deformation pattern.
One of the reasons for this is that the post-processing of the images
can be a daunting task for the less experienced user, yielding incorrect
strain fields when not done properly. MatchID DIC offers the ease
and flexibility to do this accurately which make it an excellent
quantitative measurement tool.
MatchID's tagline is "Metrology beyond colors",
offering the DIC system of the future where the main focus lies
on the metrological aspects of the system. Some of the key features
of MatchID's offering include:
- Quantitative interpretation of results focusing
on measurement resolution and spatial resolution with integrated
- Optimal test setups and processing: patterns, experimental tools
and automated post-processing
- Customized application development
- In-depth training: annual courses by experts in the field
Moreover, integration is key to the MatchID philosophy.
The embedded virtual fields method (VFM) for material identification
establishes seamless communication between DIC results and Finite
Element Analysis (FEA) for structural validation of simulations.
MatchID does not rely on simple point-cloud matching procedures,
but truly marries simulations to experimental results, and so generates
a true digital twin.
MatchID is as much a software platform as it is a
community of engineers and scientists, finding ways to optimize
research experiments. Customers show the way to keep pioneering
and keep pushing DIC forward. MatchID supports this with training
and the transfer of knowledge via their annual DIC-courses, wiki,
webinars and research program support.
Although MatchID was recently founded in 2014, they
have quickly established a broad base of customers in academia and
industry which encompasses the US, Europe, China regions and soon
Oceania. MatchID has become an internationally recognized 3D measurement
company that combines quality with high performance.
