Instrumented Testing Methods for Polymer Materials

This webinar, held at the University of Applied Sciences Merseburg, will shed light on the impact of ZwickRoell instrumentation testing methods on modern research in polymer materials testing. Prof. Beate Langer will introduce her lab and talk about her experience and how the technology she uses has benefited her success in research.

Creating a Digital Materials Space: MATERIAL D1G1TAL

The aim of this project is to develop a sustainable platform that brings together and supports interested parties from industry and academia in the sustainable implementation of digitalization tasks for materials. At the same time, tools are being developed with which the digitalization of materials can also be put into practice and which, as added value, underpin the economic connectivity of the MaterialDigital platform as a prerequisite for a sustainable business model. (Source:
