Why modernise older generation testing machines? 

Why modernise older generation testing machines?

There are several reasons for modernising older generation testing machines:

  • Obsolete testing software
  • Operating system is no longer supported, e.g. Windows XP
  • Measurement and control electronics are no longer supported
  • Changing testing situations or applications
  • Improvements in operational safety and reliability
  • Long downtime and waiting periods for replacements of obsolete electronic components

Modernisation based on innovative Zwick components means: 

  • Reliable service and support for the entire testing system for a minimum of 10 years
  • Compatibility with current Windows operating systems 
  • Use of intelligent and reliable testing software via testXpert II or testXpert Research
  • High-precision measurement and control electronics via testControl II or Control Cube
  • Continued use of virtually all existing accessories
