Zwick Roell has numerous options for automation with experience in every industry. Automation can encompass compact systems that require less space to more advanced systems, which can operate multiple instruments covering a wide range of required tests. All relevant data and results are stored through testXpert III software and can be transmitted to a quality management system for further analysis. Automatic logging ensures data integrity of test results while also monitoring long-term trends in results.

Over 30 new automated systems are delivered every year around the world by Zwick Roell. The testing process begins when specimens ready for testing are manually sorted into a magazine. From there everything can be done automatically: from measuring the sample with Zwick Roell’s cross-section measurement device to inspection of the individual samples after test. With parallel processing of specimens, Zwick automated systems deliver test results much more quickly than conventional methods. To supervise testing, graphic visualizations of the automated system can be transmitted in real time to mobile devices, allowing the full control and observation of the entire system. 

Other benefits of Zwick Roell Automated Testing Systems include:

  • Continuous, unsupervised testing
  • Qualified laboratory staff relieved of routine jobs and available for more complex tasks
  • Improvement of testing quality by eliminating operator influence
  • Zwick Roell certified accessories designed and produced in Germany including grips, extensometers, and load cells
  • Manual testing still available when necessary

Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is critical to the successful continuous operation of automated testing systems to protect the machine from overuse and ensure the reliability of the results. Automated systems often run continuously and operate in demanding environments as an important checkpoint of production, and therefore unplanned downtime can significantly impact production.  Proactively servicing an installed system ensures optimal performance, decreases unplanned downtime, and extends the life of the investment. Preventative maintenance includes skilled technicians using detailed checklists to conduct robust evaluations of your testing system and installed accessories.
