For high efficiency materials testing, the company's robotic systems can be configured precisely to customer needs Materials as diverse as metals, plastics and textiles can be automatically tested. Specimens are loaded in the racking system, and the machine essentially runs unattended from there. Typical models consist of a horizontal tensile testing machine, a Zymark robot, specimen racks, a dimensional measuring station, an optical character recognition system for the pin-stamped samples (bar code reading is also available), and the controlling Test Navigator Software.
