Actuator handles medical component mechnical testing requirements

Zwick Roell : 29 May, 2007  (New Product)
Recent sales of Zwick's electro-mechanical testing actuator has provided solutions for customers carrying out diverse mechanical testing of medical components.
The actuator has successfully evaluated needles and bone.

The wide variety of possible tests are due to an impressive specification, and a reliable testing system based on many core components from the Zwick Roell Group product portfolio.

Boasting a speed range from 0.001mm/min up to 30,000mm/min, a force range from 0.1mN up to 30kN, standard displacements of 200 or 400mm, and a positioning accuracy down to +/-2mm, the EM Actuator is the obvious solution for many different and complex testing applications.

testControl, Zwick's standard electronic platform for controlling testing systems is used for controlling the system and for data acquisition.

As well as enabling real time digital control of the testing system, including control mode changes during the test, it also allows data to be gathered from the tester and analysed with Zwick's testXpert software.

First launched in 1995 this software system goes from strength to strength providing customers with flexibility, and ease of use, combined with reliability and precision.

Whether used for standardised test methods or completely customised sequences, testXpert, and particularly the Graphic Sequence Editor, has become the software of choice for discerning customers who require complex and non standard test methods but want to concentrate on the test data and their core activities rather than spending unnecessary time writing low level software code.

The electro-mechanical testing actuator can be directly assembled, at any angle, into a production line and controlled via dedicated I/O control systems, or it can be used in stand-alone mode with a dedicated test stand.

In addition it can be fitted to any standard Zwick universal test frame thereby adding an additional test axis for tests which require side loads.

All standard Zwick attachments such as load cells or gripping systems can easily be attached.

The electro-mechanical actuator lends itself to clean room conditions as it requires no oil, pump, or pneumatic systems.

The actuator simply connects to the single or 3-phase electrical power supply system.

The device is suited to customers who are looking for affordable component testing systems with outstanding flexibility and performance, and requiring little or no maintenance.
