RWTH Aachen University Develops and Tests Biohybrid Implants with ZwickRoell Biaxial Testing Machine
ZwickRoell offers various solutions for biaxial and triaxial materials testing. Materials testing machines with torsion drive enable fast, precise biaxial testing (tensile or compression combined with torsion) of materials or components up to 10,000 Nm. In addition to tests on artificial ball-and-socket joints and bone-replacement material, torsion tests are also performed on items such as clutch plates, steering shafts and camshafts.
ZwickRoell's product range also includes biaxial testing machines for cruciform tests from 1kN to 250kN. These have four separate drives which can be operated either in master/slave mode or controlled independently of each other via the respective testControl measurement and control electronics. Biaxial testing machines for cruciform tests are especially well-suited for components testing, for research purposes and for individual complex test sequences.
