'roboTest B' Robotic Testing System from Zwick

The roboTest B (compact) robotic testing system is used to carry out completely automated tensile tests (for instance, to ISO 527-2, ASTM D638) or flexure tests (for instance, to ISO 178) on plastic specimens.

Key Advantages and Features


  • System can be fixed to materials testing machines from 5 to 100 kN
  • Combined magazine typically holds 20 specimens
  • Specimens up to 100 g in weight can be tested
  • Manual tests can be carried out whenever required—the specimen feeder simply swings out of the way for access
  • An industrial controller with autoEdition2 automation software controls the system
  • Optional extras include a HOST connection, accept/reject feature and status indicator

Advantages and Features

  • Operator influences (hand temperature/moisture, off-center or angled specimen insertion etc.) are eradicated for high test result reproducibility
  • Qualified laboratory staff are relieved of routine activities, enabling them to be 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
  • Testing system reduces the testing costs per specimen and usually pays for itself within one to two years
  • System allows for reliable documentation and statistical long-term monitoring
