Robotic Testing System - RoboTest R from Zwick

The roboTest R (polar) robotic testing system is employed for completely automated tensile tests on metal specimens (for instance, to EN 10002-1) or flexure and tensile tests on plastic specimens (for instance, to ISO 527-2, ASTM D638 or ISO 178).

Key Advantages and Features


  • Six-axis industrial robot is employed for transporting specimens
  • Variable magazine is capable of holding up to 600 specimens (based on specimen dimensions)
  • System can be added to materials testing machines from 5 to 2000 kN
  • Specimens up to 30 kg in weight can be tested
  • Several materials testing machines can be used in one system
  • roboTest R can also be employed for specimen feed to other devices (for instance, pendulum impact testers and colorimeters)
  • An industrial controller with autoEdition2 automation software controls the system
  • For manual tests, the robot arm can be placed into park position, making the materials testing machine accessible to the operator
  • Optional extras include a barcode reader, cross-section, hardness and roughness measuring devices, temperature chamber, spectral analysis, etc.

Advantages and Features

  • Operator influences (hand temperature/moisture, off-center or angled specimen insertion etc.) are eliminated for high test result reproducibility
  • Testing system reduces the testing costs per specimen and normally pays for itself within one to two years
  • System allows for reliable documentation and statistical long-term monitoring
  • Qualified laboratory staff are relieved of routine activities, making them available for more complex tasks
  • Machine can be used during idle times (night shifts and lunch breaks), which utilizes the full capacity and generates faster results
