Metals are, and will remain, important construction materials worldwide. A high percentage of steel materials can be recycled many times over and are therefore considered sustainable. Understanding their material characteristics is essential for design engineers and people who use these materials. Material characteristics are obtained from mechanical-technological materials testing, whereby materials testing machines load the materials until they fail. Testing machines from the ZwickRoell Group ensure reproducible and reliable test results based on internationally standardized test methods.
- Standardized setup of the testing machine
- Testing software that complies with standards
- Simple operation thanks to standard and custom presets
- Standard-compliant naming of test results
- Standard-compliant creation of test results/test reports
The standard stipulates the general requirements for test methods used to determine characteristics. ZwickRoell materials testing machines are equipped to fulfill these requirements and to meet customer specifications. To fulfill these requirements, the testing software uses test programs that specify the test procedure and important presets or request required variable parameter values from the operator.
