Refurbished with the latest technology

The table-top and floor-standing testing machines type 1446 were produced mainly in the nineties. After a modernization and general overhaul, these machines are ideal for applications in all industries. The pre-owned 1446 universal testing machines are equipped with test loads of 10 kN. They are particularly suited for testing on materials and small components.

The pre-owned 1446 testing machines in the C-frame version feature a test area which is open on three sides. They are especially suitable for tests on foam products and mattresses, as well as materials testing of soft-elastic foams in the shape of cubes or sheets.

Before a testing machine is offered for sale in the ZwickRoell Online Pre-owned Market, it undergoes a thorough refurbishment to ensure that it conforms to ZwickRoell's quality standards. ZwickRoell guarantees that all pre-owned test equipment is fully operational and conforms to current testing technology.

Comprehensive accessory portfolio

Since pre-owned testing machines from ZwickRoell are updated with the latest technology in terms of measurement and control electronics and testing software, sensors, test tools or other accessories can be added from the comprehensive portfolio. It is therefore easy to implement new test requirements.

Innovative testControl II machine electronics

All ZwickRoell materials testing machines are equipped with the powerful testControl II measurement and control electronics, offering the ideal basis for precise, reproducible test results. The electronics are mounted vertically on the side of the load frame. This position protects the electronics from penetration of liquids and conductive particles. The high-quality finish protects testControl II from external influences. In addition, the components used are highly durable.

  • Adaptive control – all required control parameters are set automatically for the quick and exact approach of target positions.
  • Controller set-up – special controller set-up for testing situations with demanding control requirements. For example, if the force sensor is located on the fixed crosshead in force-controlled tests, the controller can simply be switched in the software.
  • Flexibility through modularity – testControl II offers six flexible time-synchronized slots. These make it possible to use multiple sensors at the same time. They can be monitored and protected irrespective of use.

Ergonomic remote control with color display

Tests can be performed entirely via the display remote control, independently of the PC. All important information is shown on the color display. Machine operation is therefore more ergonomic and effective. The highest level of safety for the operator is ensured with an integrated emergency stop. The rocker-switch with integrated dial makes positioning fast yet highly accurate.
