Zwick/Roell, the worldwide leader in quality assurance and materials testing solutions, will be hosting the 21st testXpo forum here October 15 to 18, 2012.
The forum, which attracts Zwick customers and materials experts from around the world, will also include 25 co-exhibitors representing leading international companies in the test and measurement arena spanning more than 10 industries.
"Once again Zwick would like to welcome our special guests to what has become an important international forum for the discussion of the latest trends in materials and component testing," said Zwick/Roell CEO Jan Stefan Roell.
Testing solutions designed to address the needs of customers in the metals, composites, plastics, automotive, aerospace, medical engineering, construction materials and textiles industries will be displayed across 2,500 square meters of exhibit space.
"We are delighted to provide our customers, our partners, industry analysts, and media professionals with an opportunity to experience the latest technologies supporting academic research, the development of new products and the maintenance of high quality standards in industry," Roell said.
About 100 practical presentations will be delivered over the four days of the forum by industry and academic specialists covering specific aspects of materials testing. Lectures range from cutting edge research on characterization techniques to best practices for materials and component testing. Attendees to testXpo will also hear subject matter experts speak on topics important to the aerospace and automotive industries, with presentations covering the practical evaluation and testing of engineering plastics, as well as methods for testing fiber-reinforced composite components.
The forum also offers the opportunity to learn more about the full range of Zwick materials and component testing and quality assurance solutions, including static testing machines from 0.5kN to 2,000 kN; impact testing systems, extrusion plastometers, hardness testing systems for the nano, micro and macro ranges; and new features for the industry-leading testXpert II measurement and control software.
"Our experts will be on hand in a special technology center to answer all questions on the topics of testing software, extension and force measurement as well as specimen grips and test tools," Roell said.
