roboTest B Robotic Testing System

The roboTest B (compact) robotic testing system is used to perform fully automated tensile tests (for example, to ISO 527-2, ASTM D638) or flexure tests (for example, to ISO 178) on plastic specimens.

Roboter-Prüfsystem 'roboTest B'


Key Advantages and Features


  • System can be attached to materials testing machines from 5 to 100 kN
  • Integrated magazine typically holds 20 specimens
  • Specimens up to 100 g in weight can be tested
  • Manual tests can be performed whenever required—the specimen feeder simply swings out of the way for access
  • An industrial controller with autoEdition2 automation software controls the system
  • Optional extras include a status indicator, HOST connection and accept/reject feature

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
