Modernization of testing machines

Modernization of testing machines and systems is one of ZwickRoell’s core competencies. With several thousand modernizations performed to date, we have been able to gather a vast amount of experience and know-how in the field of manufacturer-independent testing machine modernizations.

Materials testing machines and testing systems from over 50 different manufacturers can be transformed into state-of-the-art equipment using modern ZwickRoell measurement and control electronics, drive technology, and testing software. When modernizing testing machines and testing systems, we install the same proven components we use in our new machines, providing our customers with updated future compatibility.

Reasons for modernizing your testing machine

There are many reasons for a modernization:

  • Obsolete testing software
  • Your operating system is no longer supported, e.g. Windows XP,
    Windows 7
  • Measurement and control electronics are no longer supported
  • Changing testing situations or applications
  • Improvements in operational safety and reliability
  • Long downtime and waiting periods for the replacement of
    obsolete electronic components
