|Fachmesse_Foyer(pressebox) Ulm, 08.08.2007 - This year the international Forum for Materials Testing will take place from 22. to 25. October. Over the past 16 years this event has acquired an excellent international reputation. In addition to a full range of innovative and successful solutions for destructive and non-destructive testing there will be lectures by well-known experts with practical tests and demonstrations during the show. Technical engineers will be present for discussion on special test requirements.
The testXpo 2007 will be held in Zwick's brand new 5200m² production centre. Unlike traditional exhibitions, the exhibits are grouped according to application. For example, there are metal testing centers as well as plastics, automotive, medical, and building materials. This gives guests the opportunity to find items they are interested in easily and to discuss their testing requirements with application experts. The tested for life centre will demonstrate a range of mechanical tests on products we experience in our daily lives, for example the testing of sports shoes, outdoor textiles or texture tests on cookies.
Zwicks after-sales products clearly demonstrate the cost effectiveness of upgrading, or modernizing (retrofitting) both Zwick and non-Zwick brands of testing machine, whether they are electro-mechanical, servo-hydraulic, pendulum impact testers, or creep testers.They have also prepared a comprehensive service package which includes the technical consultancy services, project planning and implementation of the modernization process including calibration, and operator training.
As always, the center of interest will be testXpert® II Zwicks software for both static and dynamic testing. testXpert® II offers tailored solutions using individual industry terminology and a choice of languages. testXpert® II is used in conjunction with testControl, the latest technology in digital test machine controllers.
Innovations and Experts
In addition to the conventional materials testing machines, exhibitors will experience a comprehensive range of new developments; a new range of testing machines (zwicki-Line) from 0.5 kN to 5 kN, new testing instruments for tests on plastics (Drop weight tester, Mflow, HDT/Vicat), new hardness testers (ZHU topLine), and a new sheet metal forming tester. A special feature will highlight the latest technology and functionality in non contact extensometry (laserXtens and videoXtens). There will also be new grips and tooling for yarns and textiles, and a much wider range of tools and fixtures for other specialized tests.
As always, Zwick experts from every industry sector will be available to answer questions and share valuable information with the delegates.
Presentations and discussions
The Forum for Testing Technologies will offer more than just product information and exhibits. Technical presentations and workshops in German and English language will enable the sharing of information on topical subjects concerning materials and component testing. Visitors will collect valuable, comprehensive, and practical information and enhance their own personal networks.
