roboTest A Robotic Testing System

The roboTest A robotic testing system (compact) is used to perform fully automated tensile tests on metal specimens (for example, to ISO 6892, JIS Z 2201, ASTM E8) or plastic specimens (for example, to ISO 527-2, ASTM D790).

'roboTest A' robotic testing system


Key Advantages and Features


  • System can be attached to materials testing machines from 5 to 250 kN
  • Integrated magazine can accommodate 20 specimens
  • An industrial controller with autoEdition2 automation software controls the system
  • Optional extras include a barcode reader, HOST connection, accept/reject feature, and status indicator

Advantages & features

  • Operator influences (hand temperature/moisture, off-center or angled specimen insertion etc.) are eliminated for high test result reproducibility
  • Qualified laboratory staff are relieved of routine activities, making them available for more complex tasks
  • Machine can be used during idle times (lunch breaks and night shifts), which utilizes the full capacity and produces faster results
  • Testing system reduces the testing costs per specimen and typically pays for itself within one to two years
  • System allows for reliable documentation and statistical long-term monitoring
