Testing laboratory

Mechanical testing machines: Zwick/Roell Z020 up to 20kN; Zwick/Roell Z100 from 50N to 100kN

Areas of application:

  • Static strength tests
  • Determination of the strength and toughness of materials
  • Determination of fracture toughness and fracture energy

Electronic laser speckle pattern interferometry (ESPI)

Non-contact, full-field 3D measurement of a sample surface.

Interference of laser light creates speckle patterns on optically rough surfaces whose change is tracked by camera systems. Suitable for measuring strain in all 3 spatial directions.

Laser extensometer LaserXtens

Laser light creates a "speckle" pattern on the sample, which serve as markings on the sample. Suitable for: Non-contact strain measurement, even on small specimens with high accuracy.

Impact pendulum Zwick/Roell HIT50P

For the determination of the impact strength of materials according to Charpy.
