Zwick Roell Launch Youtube Channel for Materials Testing

Earlier this month the Zwick Roell Group launched 'Zwick Roell TV' on YouTube enabling viewers to watch, in detail, all sorts of products and materials being tested to destruction using advanced robotic systems. We all get a delicious sense of satisfaction seeing something being stretched to its limit, bent, bashed, crushed and broken, but materials testing also has a serious role in the development and manufacture of high-quality, safe products.

Already boasting more than 200 views, Zwick Roell's new YouTube channel is regularly updated with short, informative videos, in both English and German. The films demonstrate efficient and effective application of automated materials testing for a whole range of products across multiple industries. All videos are freely available and anyone wishing to subscribe can do so via a YouTube or Google account at:

Automated testing benefits a huge variety of industries, products and materials. Some of the tests covered by videos currently available on Zwick Roell TV include:

  • Tensile testing on concrete steel, composite materials and 'Artificial Tissue in Temperature-controlled Environment'
  • Tensile, bending, impact and puncture testing on plastics as well as reflection and transmitted light measurements and 'Extrusion plastometry for the determination of melt flow rate (MFR) and melt volume rate (MVR)'
  • Charpy impact testing on plastics and metals
  • Robotic testing for both heavy plates, up to 50mm, and thin sheets
  • Biaxial testing on biomaterials
  • And, for the pharmaceutical industry:
    • Horizontal testing on catheter systems
    • Hardness testing on a dental ceramics
    • Fatigue testing on spinal implants
    • Push & Turn testing on screw caps for pill bottles

Materials testing is critical to product quality and safety, and is closely regulated within industry standards and guidelines. As all Zwick Roell systems are designed to work within relevant guidelines. The videos on the group's new YouTube channel promote best practice and are therefore as educational and informative as they are fascinating to watch.
