ARAMIS – 3D Motion and Deformation Sensor

ARAMIS is a non-contact and material-independent measuring system based on digital image correlation (DIC). It offers a stable solution for full-field and point-based analyses of test objects of just a few millimeters up to structural components of several meters in size.

The system performs high-precision measurements with a 3D image resolution in the submicrometer range, regardless of the specimen’s geometry and temperature. There is no need for a time-consuming and expensive preparation. For statically or dynamically loaded specimens and components, ARAMIS provides accurate

  • 3D coordinates
  • 3D displacements, velocities, accelerations
  • Surface strain
  • Material properties for simulation (Young’s modulus etc.)
  • Evaluations of 6 degrees of freedom (6DoF)


Sensor Technology for 3D Motion and Deformation Analysis

Materials research and component testing play an important role in product development. The ARAMIS systems provide information on the properties of the materials used and the behavior of the products under load. These results form the basis for product durability, geometrical layout and reliable numerical simulations and validations.

Light Management

The Blue Light Technology excels by its narrow-band blue light, which means that interfering ambient light during image acquisition can be filtered out. The light sources are designed to ensure an optimum illumination with short exposure times for all measuring areas from 10 mm x 10 mm up to 5 m x 5 m.

Integration into Testing Environment

The integrated GOM Testing Controller not only controls the stage acquisition but also the light management. Furthermore, a software-based programming interface is integrated for preset or user-defined measuring sequences. The GOM Testing Controller fully supports the integration into existing test environments by means of external triggering and analog data acquisition.

Live Tracking
The Live functions of ARAMIS permit online measurement, positioning and motion analyses and they are supported by measurements with touch probes and adapters.

Long-Term Online Measurement

Online component testing is used, for example, in durability tests, fatigue tests as well as in wind tunnel tests and vibration analysis. At the same time, the measuring results can be viewed online or transferred to other programs using digital and analog interfaces and can be processed live by these programs.

In the online measurement, parts and their movements are specifically aligned and positioned to CAD. A typical application, for example, involves transforming the coordinate system of the simulation to the real measuring setup.

GOM Touch Probe

Touch probe – The GOM Touch Probe is a tactile measuring system extension that is optically tracked by the ARAMIS system. It is used for tactile measurements and makes it possible to measure coordinates on areas that are difficult to access optically.

GOM Adapter

GOM Adapters offer extended opportunities for live measurement, such as component alignments or measurements of regular geometries and edges.

ARAMIS Professional Live


Combining several ARAMIS sensors, allows for measuring from various perspectives with different measuring areas. Here, the deformation behavior of a part is recorded simultaneously from all sides and evaluated in a common coordinate system.

Large Measuring Volume

For dynamic measuring of complex or large applications with dimensions of up to ten meters in size, ARAMIS enables evaluating the vibration behavior of individual blades of wind power plants under heavy loads caused by weather-related influences.

Verification of Numerical Simulation

ARAMIS sensors provide information on material properties of parts. This data is used as input parameters for simulation computations and reference size for optimization and verification. The GOM software allows importing FE data from formats including ABAQUS, LS-DYNA, ANSYS as well as aligning them to the measuring data and in space.

Kiosk – Automated Inspection

The ARAMIS Kiosk Interface is an user interface for automated evaluation of tensile tests complying with different standards. With minimized user interaction, standardized testing procedures can be carried out fast, easily and repeatable for measurement series with numerous specimens.

ARAMIS Professional Software
The ARAMIS Professional software offers the complete workflow from measuring data acquisition, via analysis, up to reporting.

The ARAMIS Professional software combines the functionalities of the ARAMIS sensors and the GOM Correlate software, thus offering a synchronized acquisition of images and analog data as well as all evaluation functionalities.

GOM Correlate Software

GOM Correlate is a software package for digital image correlation (DIC) and 3D motion analysis in materials and components testing. The software is used for the determination of material properties as well as for the validation and optimization of numerical simulations. GOM Correlate is applied in basic research, product development and failure analyses.
