Zwick USA, a Kennesaw, GA-based subsidiary of international materials test leader Zwick/Roell, will be exhibiting a range of composite materials test equipment and software solutions at the Society of Plastics Engineers Automotive Composites Conference & Exhibition here September 11 to 13.
Automotive industry initiatives to improve fuel economy combined with changing regulations are motivating automotive manufacturers to explore designs that incorporate new materials including advanced composites, according to Bill Becker, Managing Director, Zwick USA. “At Zwick we are keeping pace with these developments through the introduction of our new Allround-Line system and 13 different fixtures that enable robust testing of composites across a wide range of testing standards" Becker said.
Zwick USA will be exhibiting at Booth #129 at the Diamond Banquet & Conference Center at Suburban Collection Showplace. The Zwick booth will feature information on the new Allround-Line system for composites. Zwick will also offer demonstrations of the zwicki-Line system utilized by major producers of carbon fiber to test composite materials used to produce automotive components. The Allround-Line system is capable of performing more than 20 different types of tests in compliance with over 100 test standards.
The system accommodates a wide range of tests on a single platform, minimizing equipment changeovers and reducing overall testing time. Available in 100 and 250kN versions, the new Allround-Line system enhances test lab throughput, enabling greater levels of efficiency without sacrificing accuracy.
