Key Advantages and Features

Description

  • These materials testing machines feature a large measurement range that allows for precise determination of even low test forces, without the need to convert the testing machine.
  • Low-maintenance, play-free pre-stressed ball screws guarantee accurate long-term operation in the tensile and compression directions.
  • The load frame is extremely stiff and robust.
  • Operator involvement in standard tests using testXpert III testing software is reduced to the push of a button.
  • Modular design throughout the system allows the entire ZwickRoell accessory range to be used (including a wide variety of extensometers, specimen grips and other test fixtures).
  • Should new testing requirements arise, additional test fixtures (e.g. calibration blocks) are easily installed via a T-slot or screw system.
  • The materials testing machine can be tailored to customers’ specific requirements (e.g. test area dimensions, test devices, specimen grips, test speed ranges, testing software).

Advantages and features

  • Convenient operating height for specimen insertion with grips installed.
  • testXpert III's intelligent test environment concept reduces set-up times and increases productivity.
  • The robust load-frame features four hard-chromed guide-columns and massive base and moving crossheads, ensuring excellent guidance properties and a high level of machine stiffness.
  • Maintenance-free digitally controlled AC drive technology combined with an innovative motor feedback system allows excellent constant speed characteristics to be achieved even at extremely low speeds.
  • The backlash-free pre-stressed precision ball-screws with digitally controlled AC servo drive allow virtually maintenance-free operation.
  • The large test area combined with low overall height enables specimens and components with a wide range of lengths to be tested.
  • The testing machine is positioned directly on the ground with no foundation.
  • Compliance with the statutory safety requirements of the EC Machinery Directive is ensured in all materials testing machines, while an EC Declaration of Conformity accompanies every machine supplied.
  • Only the latest safety technology and proven industrial components are used.
  • The highest degree of safety for the operator, test results, specimen material, and testing system are guaranteed.

testXpert III Testing Software

testXpert III is the result of close cooperation with software users in the materials testing industry and the experience of over 35,000 successful testXpert installations. From the very start, testXpert III uses a workflow that is based on your lab processes to guide you step by step through your test. Get to know testXpert III and experience how easy it is to use.

Innovative testControl II Machine Electronics

All of ZwickRoell's materials testing machines are equipped with the powerful testControl II measurement and control electronics, offering the ideal basis for precise, reproducible test results.

  • The electronics are installed vertically on the load frame to prevent liquids and from entering the unit and contact with conductive particles.
  • The high-quality finish protects testControl II from external influences. The components used are highly durable.

testControl II Machine Electronics & testXpert III Testing Software Make a Great Team

testXpert III testing software and testControl II machine electronics are perfectly matched, ensuring safe and efficient operation of the materials testing machine. testXpert III provides the optimum solution for any testing requirement.

Flexibility Through Modularity

testControl II has six flexible time-synchronized slots, allowing multiple sensors to be used simultaneously and monitored and safeguarded regardless of use.

  • As an example, an extensometer and a transverse strain extensometer can be used in addition to the load cell.
  • If the testing system is equipped with several load cells or additional sensors, these can all remain plugged in. All sensors which are plugged in will then automatically be protected against overloads.

High Data Transmission Rate

Synchronous 500 Hz measured-value acquisition-rate delivers fast measurement with maximum reproducibility (regardless of number of measurement channels). The measured-value acquisition-rate can optionally be increased to 2000 Hz. The high data transmission rate enables fast measurement with maximum reproducibility. This is highly advantageous for high-speed tests, short brittle-fracture events and in tear-growth, adhesion and peel tests.

System Monitoring

testControl II system monitoring provides the user/laboratory manager with detailed information on the current status and level of utilization of the testing equipment. This enables further increases in testing equipment availability and greatly simplifies maintenance planning and spares/replacement procurement.

Fast, Adaptive Drive Controller

The high drive control frequency of 1000 Hz delivers fast, precise force and strain control. Benefits include enabling components to be loaded very quickly and accurately with a predetermined force.

Maximum Accuracy

High (24-bit) resolution and A/D converter with 400 kHz sampling rate for maximum measured-value accuracy combined with large measurement range. As an example, even the smallest force changes on the specimen can still be recorded and displayed accurately.

Innovative Interfaces

The innovative EtherCat® interface is incorporated as standard. The time-synchronized real-time Ethernet field bus system ensures future-proof integration of sensors and power units.

Eco Mode

testControl II electronics switch automatically to eco-mode when not in use, saving energy.

Ergonomic Remote Control with Display

Tests can be performed entirely via the remote control, independent of the PC. All important information is shown on the display. Machine operation is therefore more ergonomic and effective. The rocker-switch with integrated dial makes positioning fast yet highly accurate.
