What is a roboTest L?

The roboTest L is a fully automated testing system for metals and plastics. It can be used for tensile tests, flexure tests or tear growth tests (elastomers).

Depending on the specimen dimensions and specimen surface, up to 480 specimens can be tested autonomously.

The specimens to be tested are placed in a movable magazine table (X-axis). The gripper (Y-axis) removes the specimens from the magazine and conveys them to the testing machine where the fully automated test is run. Optional components including an ID scanner, cross-section measuring device, HOST connection, accept/reject feature, disposal gripper, and status indicator, complete the system.

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

The future measures blue – and so does our roboTest L: with laserXtens

Non-contact measurement of extension and change in width – laserXtens supports the modern laboratory

  • The laserXtens is used for optical measurement of a material’s extension and change in width.
  • The extension is measured on both sides of the specimen, since for a cold strip, for example, the material can flow unevenly on the two sides.
  • To optimize measurements, a blue light is used, by which precise and repeatable results are determined.

Robotic testing system roboTest L with the latest drive axis and Windows 10 – the workhorse for tensile tests on metals

  • Due to its compact setup, the roboTest L takes up relatively little space. High specimen throughput provides fast results.
  • The system runs automated tensile tests up to 250 kN on cold strips with thicknesses of 0.5 mm to 10 mm.
  • The magazine can hold a maximum of 160 specimens.

Advantages of the roboTest L

  • 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 its 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 secure documentation and statistical long-term monitoring.

autoEdition3 automation software

The autoEdition3 automation software is at the core of the robotic testing system. The software controls, regulates and monitors all automated processes, components and devices.

In combination with our testXpert testing software the autoEdition3 automation software delivers traceable and tamper-proof results. Immediately upon starting autoEdition3, the user experiences the benefits of intuitive operation from a look and feel that is consistent with the testXpert user interface.
