AllroundLine for individual testing requirements and all applications
The roboTest R (polar) robotic testing system is used for fully automated tensile tests on metal specimens (for example, to ISO 6892) or tensile and flexure tests on plastic specimens (for example, to ISO 527-2, ISO 178 or ASTM D638).
Advantages & features
ArcelorMittal is the world’s leading steel-producer. At its Ghent (Belgium) plant alone, annual black and coarse plate capacity is in excess of five million tonnes. Quality assurance includes tensile testing of metal dumbbell specimens up to 16mm thick. The system used for this consists of two ZwickRoell testing machines, a specimen magazine, a cross-section measuring-device and a barcode-reader. The metal specimens are handled via a KUKA KR6 industrial robot.
