roboTest C Robotic Testing System

For Automated Tensile Tests on Metals (Small Series)

The roboTest C (compact) robotic testing system is used to perform fully automated tensile tests on metal specimens (e.g. to ISO 6892, JIS Z 2201, ASTM E8) in small series.

Key Advantages and Features


  • The robotic testing system can be attached to materials testing machines from 300 to 600 kN.
  • The integrated magazine typically holds 24 or 40 specimens.
  • Specimens up to 5 kg 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 autoEdition3 automation software controls the system.
  • Optional components including status indicator and HOST connection complete the system.

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
