Testing System Modernisation 

In the course of modernising several thousand testing systems Zwick has gained extensive experience in manufacturer-independent modernisation.

Testing systems from over 40 different manufacturers can be transformed into state-of-the-art equipment using modern Zwick measurement and control electronics, drive technology, and testing software. Tried and tested components from new machines are used to update testing systems to the latest technology.

If the purchase of new testing equipment is outside your budget then why not consider a Zwick machine modernisation option. We think it represents excellent value for money but don’t take our word for it, this is what Jonathan Nichols, Senior Metallurgist, Marine & Technology Division of the Babcock International Group said.

“About five years ago we had our ageing Dartec 600kN hydraulic tensile machine upgraded by Zwick. The control system was the original; potentiometers, flick switches and a juddery  chart recorder but the frame was still good. The guys at Zwick transformed our machine which now runs testXpert II. We have seen an improvement in the reliability of results and a huge improvement in reproducibility and repeatability, backed up by our inter-lab proficiency scheme. I would recommend exploring this option to anyone with an ageing frame that is still serviceable but has a rickety control system.”
