Testing machine with large test loads up to 2,500 kN

E-series electromechanical materials testing machines are used to perform tensile tests, flexure tests, or compression tests with large test loads. A robust frame ensures excellent guiding properties and high machine stiffness. Tensile testing machines from ZwickRoell are equipped with a ball-screw drive and are available in 330 kN, 400 kN, 600 kN, 1000 kN, 1200 kN, 1600 kN, 2000 kN and 2500 kN versions (33 - 250 tons).

The results are displayed in the testXpert testing software in the form of a force travel diagram or a stress strain curve, which is then used to determine material characteristic values such as tensile strength or yield points.

Measuring large specimens. Optically and without markings. With reliability and accuracy.

The videoXtens Array extensometers were developed for tensile tests on large specimens. High-resolution cameras capture the full length of the grip-to-grip separation.

Your benefits:

  • Reliable test results for 100% of tests performed
  • Measurement without the need for markings
  • Wide range of applications for metals
  • Strain control to ISO 6892-1 Method A1

Key advantages and features

Operator convenience
Modern load frame design
Satisfying the most demanding safety requirements
testXpert III testing software


  • These materials testing machines feature a wide measurement range, which allows for precise determination of even low test loads, without the need to convert the testing machine.
  • Low-maintenance, play-free pre-stressed ball screws guarantee accurate long-term operation in the tensile and compression directions.
  • The load frame is extremely stiff and robust.
  • For standard tests using our testXpert testing software, operator involvement is as simple as the push of a button.
  • Modular design throughout the system allows the entire ZwickRoell accessory range to be used (including a wide variety of extensometers, specimen grips and other test fixtures).
  • Should new testing requirements arise, additional test fixtures (e.g. calibration blocks) are easily installed via a T-slot or screw system.
  • The materials testing machine can be tailored to customers’ specific requirements (e.g. test area dimensions, test devices, specimen grips, test speed ranges, testing software).

Operator convenience

  • Convenient operating height for specimen insertion with grips installed.
  • testXpert III's intelligent test environment concept reduces set-up times and increases productivity.

Modern load frame design

  • The robust load-frame features four hard-chromed guide-columns and massive base and moving crossheads, ensuring excellent guidance properties and a high level of machine stiffness.
  • Maintenance-free digitally controlled AC drive technology combined with an innovative motor feedback system allows excellent constant speed characteristics to be achieved even at extremely low speeds.
  • The backlash-free pre-stressed precision ball-screws with digitally controlled AC servo drive allow virtually maintenance-free operation.
  • The large test area combined with low overall height enables specimens and components with a wide range of lengths to be tested.
  • The testing machine is positioned directly on the ground with no foundation.

Satisfying the most demanding safety requirements

  • Compliance with the statutory safety requirements of the EC Machinery Directive is ensured in all materials testing machines, while an EC Declaration of Conformity accompanies every machine supplied.
  • Only the latest safety technology and proven industrial components are used.
  • The highest degree of safety for the operator, test results, specimen material, and testing system are guaranteed.
