A smart lightweight robot supports you during specimen testing

During testXpo 2019 the smart lightweight robot was introduced to our visitors from all over the world. With the roboTest N lightweight robot, simple pick and place applications with a series larger than 10 identical specimens can be automatically fed and disposed of.

Advantages and features of the lightweight robot

Advantages and features of the lightweight robot



A typical configuration consists of:

  • Materials testing machine up to 20 kN
  • Tool for function tests, tensile or flexure test
  • Extensometer (optional)
  • robotTest N robotic testing system with integrated magazine for 20-30 specimens
  • Industrial controller with testXpert testing software and autoEdition3 automation software


  • Due to the complete integration of the lightweight robot into the ZwickRoell software environment, robot programming knowledge is not required for operation.
  • The intuitive user interface for roboTest N in autoEdition 3 also ensures flexible use for future testing applications.
  • With force-controlled drive axes, the roboTest N requires a smaller installation location than conventional industrial robots, while maintaining the same level of safety.
