Product Description

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.

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

Innovative electronics
• The new testControl II measurement and control electronics provide the ideal basis for precise, reproducible test results.
• Developed in-house by Zwick, the electronics impress through maximum accuracy, high measured-value rates and flexible modularity.

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.

• Modular design means that the testing system can be re-equipped or upgraded whenever required.
• Moreover, testControl II control electronics are compatible with future-generation Zwick software.
• Even after a product has been discontinued, spare parts remain available for a minimum of 10 years.
