5 October 2018 Soon it will all come together and the 27th testXpo will open its doors to over 2,000 visitors from some 50 countries. Almost all the exhibits have already been assembled and our people are ready and waiting with information on the latest topics and trends from the world of materials testing. To ensure everything runs smoothly and your stay in Ulm is a pleasant one, we have included some last-minute information below.
We wish you a pleasant trip and look forward to meeting you in person in Ulm in the near future.
17 September 2018 Today’s state-of-the-art, all-purpose hardness testing machines are based around technologies which employ innovative mechatronic components to enable high-precision testing in a wide range of applications. These are quality assurance, production-line testing and laboratory-based operations. On display at this year's testXpo are the latest options for using hardness testing machines in the R&D environment and inquality assurance. Our application experts, product managers and Software experts will all be on hand ready to discuss your hardness testing requirements.
Our product portfolio includes a complete range of hardness testers for use with metals, plastics, rubber and special materials in accordance with all the principal and globally established standards. ZwickRoell's hardness testing solutions range from manual standard applications to fully automatic testing systems. Special emphasis this year is on nanoindentation and our HD hardness testing software.
In the same exhibition area our long-standing co-exhibitor Olympus is presenting the latest offerings from the fields of microscopy and ultrasound testing.
August 27th, 2018 Fatigue testing will be a key topic for the Automotive Center this year. Different materials and components call for different testing technologies. With this in mind ZwickRoell has made a substantial investment in the development of dynamic testing machines and drive technologies in recent years and can supply a drive concept to suit every testing application.
This wide range of drive technologies makes ZwickRoell the only testing machine manufacturer able to provide objective advice where the drive concept is concerned. The same testing software and controller technology are used for all testing machines, reducing the need for training in day-to-day laboratory operation.
August 10th, 2018 This year as well, testXpo visitors will have the opportunity to look behind the scenes at ZwickRoell. The testXpo exhibition area extends over five buildings at ZwickRoell’s headquarters in Ulm. Production will not be shut down during the exhibition; instead, the around 300 production and assembly employees will continue manufacturing the testing machines and systems. Observe our experts live while they work. After all, ZwickRoell offers guaranteed standard delivery times for many products and will meet these deadlines during testXpo as well.
If you haven’t seen it all during your own tour of the exhibition, we additionally offer guided tours through the ZwickRoell company site on a daily basis. In less than an hour, you can learn more about ZwickRoell’s history, its high-tech production with large vertical range of manufacture or ZwickRoell’s innovative quality management system.
August 6th, 2018 ZwickRoell will present solutions for high-temperate tests in its own exhibition area at this year’s testXpo. The testing systems on exhibit can be used to perform tests at temperatures up to 2,000 °C. ZwickRoell will present systems with traditional high-temperature furnaces (also available as triple carousels) and with inductive heating coils. Strain measurement is performed in both variants using laserXtens, which can reliably measure the strain of even glowing specimens based on the laser speckle principle. Various creep test machines will also be presented in this high-temperature area. These creep test machines permit tests > 10,000 hours.
ZwickRoell will present its newly developed temperature chambers for tests up to 250 °C at testXpo. The temperature chambers offer impressive performance through optimal interplay between all system components, thereby ensuring reliable test results and fast and simple handling. The temperature chambers were perfectly integrated into ZwickRoell ’s extension measurement world. Reliable test results are guaranteed for both optical and contact measurements. All influences, such as vibrations and optical distortions caused by convection, are minimized for this purpose. The optional LED illumination module permits optical measurement for change in width as well. Requirements such as ISO 527 and ASTM D638, among others, are reliably met.
The temperature chambers are also suitable for tests at temperatures down to -70 °C on plastic, composites or rubber.
