Modernization Packages for electromechanical static materials testing machines

Our modular RetroLine modernization packages for electro-mechanical static materials testing machines can be adapted to suit your individual requirements.

The retrofit kits consist of the following basic elements:

  • testControl digital measurement and control electronics II
  • testXpert II testing software
  • special retrofit kits for modification of existing sensors, e.g. load cells, extensometers etc.
  • new AC drive
 

Ergonomic operating concept

Zwick materials testing machines allow optimum adjustment to meet ergonomic requirements; modular design enables adaptation as and when required. Ergonomics are top priority when it comes to operating the new Allround-Line machine.
 

testControl II display-equipped remote control 

Ergonomic display-equipped remote control

Tests can be performed entirely via the display remote control, independently of the PC. The measurement channels, machine/test status and keyboard assignments are shown via the graphic display, providing the operator with access to all essential information directly on the remote control.
 

 

Safety concept as per EC Machinery Directive

Product safety is guaranteed by compliance with the new EC Machinery Directive and other applicable guidelines and standards. The statutory safety requirements of the EC Machinery Directive are implemented in all Zwick testing machines, while an EC Declaration of Conformity accompanies every machine.

 

 

AC drive

Modern drives for testing machines – especially higher-powered drives – are nowadays largely based around three-phase synchronous motors There are many reasons why a new AC drive is an essential element in a comprehensive, high-level modernization.

 

 

Sensors

Existing sensors such as load cells and extensometers can be re-used following modification.

 

Examples of modernized electro-mechanical materials testing machines

Zwick has over 20 years' experience in modernizing materials testing machines. As well as modernizing its own machines, Zwick can bring testing machines by other manufacturers up to current testing technology standards. Machines from over 40 different manufacturers can be modernized by Zwick.

Zwick’s proven measurement and control electronics, drive technology and testing software are integral both to new-build Zwick machines and to Zwick RetroLine modernizations – giving your modernized machine technology on a par with that of a new product.
