ZwickRoell celebrates 25,000th testXpert installation

During this year's testXpo ZwickRoell celebrated the 25,000th installation of testXpert testing software. This particular distinction fell to British company Speciality Fibres & Materials Limited (SFM). testXpert is now among the most widely used materials testing software in the world.

testXpert II represents the new generation of materials testing software, developed on the latest Microsoft Windows platform using state-of-the-art software technology. More than 600 Standard test programs are available for testXpert II, covering a wide range of test types.

SFM provides a good illustration of testXpert’s versatility and flexibility. The company is a leading supplier of substrates and products to the wound-care market and opted for a zwickiLine (Fmax 1 kN) materials testing machine as part of laboratory modernization. This compact ZwickRoell testing system is employed both in R&D and quality control and can be used for tear-growth and puncture tests, as well as for tensile tests on a range of fibers and textile fabrics.

Dr Jan Stefan Roell presented this special award to a representative of SFM at this year’s testXpo.
