At JEC Europe 2013, Zwick GmbH’s (Ulm, Germany, and Kennesaw, Ga.) new Allround-Line testing machine was described as poised to set a new standard in static materials testing. This one modular tester reportedly covers 21 types of tests and meets the requirements of 115 standards over a wide temperature range. It is said to be ideal for composites with properties that depend on fiber alignment, the fiber, the matrix and the fiber/matrix interface. This machine is available with a force range starting at 5 kN and, depending on the requirements and desired force range, in flatbed or column format. The machine’s patented hollow-profile or classical column guides are said to guarantee maximum stiffness and precise crosshead guidance, providing a basis for accurate, traceable test results. The core of the Allround-Line is the new testControl II control electronics, said to provide precise, reproducible test results. The key features include new drive technology, high measured-value acquisition rates, modular design and a high safety standard.
