roboTest F Robotic Testing System

The roboTest F (clamp) robotic testing system is designed for non-rigid specimens such as films, textiles, and non-wovens. By using the appropriate specimen grips, metal and plastics specimens and wires can also be tested.


Key Advantages and Features


  • System can be attached to materials testing machines from 5 to 250 kN
  • System consists of a traveling axis plus a carousel with up to 200 specimen holders
  • Specimens up to 500 g in weight can be tested
  • Specimen holders are available as metal clips, clamps, or magnets
  • Freely positionable servo axes allow the carousel to be equipped as required with a wide range of specimen holders. In addition to metal specimens, non-rigid films and textiles, thin metal, or carbon-fiber wires, and mild steel can be placed in the magazine
  • 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 HOST connection

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
