Zwick enhances universal testing machine range to handle different load capacities

Zwick Roell : 08 November, 2007  (New Product)
Zwick has upgraded the company's zwicki-Line universal testing machines to handle more load capacities.
The machines are available in four load capacities (500N, 1kN, and 2.5kN, and a new 5kN model) and three different height combinations to suit most applications and laboratory requirements for testing materials and components.

Flexible, reliable and value for money these new testing machines are now fitted with Zwick’s latest testControl system and are designed to meet the diverse needs of both research and development laboratories and quality assurance environments.

Depending on the model, test and crosshead positioning speeds up to 3000mm/min enable high speed tests or short cycle times, such as the testing of elastomers and springs.

Zwick’s environment system speeds up testing by recording all important machine data including the current crosshead position and limit switch positions even if the machine is switched off. This eliminates much of the setting up time encountered with traditional systems.

The load frame compliance can be compensated automatically thereby increasing the accuracy and consistency of compression / flexural test results.

Correction is carried out in real time directly in the machine controller, whilst the adaptive drive control ensures the optimum response and performance from the drive system. These advanced features ensure that machine control and test results are of the highest possible integrity.

If required, the zwicki can be transported to perform tests outside of the typical laboratory environment. It can be operated in 'stand-alone' mode using the optional color display with storage of data in the electronics or, because it requires no special interface cards and complicated setup procedures, it can be connected to any commercially available PC or laptop.

To prevent ingress of liquids and conducting materials testControl is attached to the side of the load frame, whilst a small footprint ensures optimum portability and use of valuable laboratory bench space.

Zwick’s testXpert II software guarantees the highest quality, reliability, and convenience. The modular design allows tests to be easily configured and stored, and is used by all major industries worldwide. A specific benefit to organizations in the medical field is that all actions during the test can be logged ensuring that the test results are fully traceable to FDA requirements.

The testXpert II can be fully integrated into existing IT structures and test results can be processed, printed, transmitted by email, or exported to external database systems.

The zwicki line products are typically used to test plastics, elastomers, foils, composite materials, paper, cardboard, textiles, foams, wires, food products, or functional testing of components.
