What is a roboTest C?

The roboTest C is an automated test system for heavy metal plates. This system is used in particular for small series of metal specimens up to 5 kg and takes on the task of positioning these heavy specimens in the specimen grips.
For a tensile test, the roboTest C can typically test 24 or 40 specimens autonomously.

The specimens to be tested are inserted in a magazine. The gripper removes the specimens from the magazine and conveys them to the testing machine. The specimen is gripped in the specimen grips and the tensile test starts fully automatically.

Manual tests can be performed as required by sliding the specimen feeding system out of the way.


  • Operator influences (hand temperature/moisture, off-center or angled specimen insertion etc.) are eliminated resulting in high test-result reproducibility.
  • Qualified laboratory staff are relieved of routine activities, allowing them to focus on more complex tasks.
  • The machine can be used during idle times (lunch breaks and night shifts), which increases the full capacity and produces faster results.
  • The testing system reduces the testing costs per specimen and typically pays for itself within one to two years.
  • The system supports reliable documentation and statistical long-term monitoring.
