The 17th testXpo Forum for Materials Testing covered every aspect of testing technology. Over 2,000 visitors from around the world came to Ulm to learn about current trends and development in a varied program featuring remarkable systems solutions for all branches of industry, trendsetting technologies and services - as provided by the Zwick Roell Group and 30 participating companies.

Zwick on course for growth - The end of 2007 saw Zwick achieve an ambitious goal first set in 2004: to be world market-leader in static testing systems. “We are and will continue to be Number One for static testing systems and are experiencing strong growth in dynamic testing systems. Thanks to our strong customer orientation, we are set to continue to grow,” stated Dr Jan Stefan Roell, Chairman of the Zwick Roell Group, at the press conference. This year's target is a turnover of €145m, following the €131m achieved in 2007.

Range of services expanded - The Group's guidelines place great emphasis on the wide range of services offered, which is subject to continual expansion and development. In a new fatigue and dynamic strength laboratory a team of highly qualified application engineers carry out wide-ranging quasi-static, cyclic, dynamic, impact and fatigue strength tests to customers' requirements. Included in the service is advice on a range of topics including the optimum test method and how best to perform it, the design and adaptation of testing devices, plus evaluation, documentation and interpretation of tests. An important feature of the fatigue/dynamic strength laboratory is the demonstration laboratory, where customers can observe pre-tests and demonstrations.

Also on offer is a comprehensive service package including modernization, servicing, calibration, project planning, contract testing and remote diagnosis/maintenance, plus the Zwick Academy for training and seminars.

Further developments in testing software - Now in its third successful year, Zwick's testXpert II intelligent testing software is subject to continuous upgrading and development. It is used by scientists and engineers around the world for production control and quality assurance as well as for research and development.

This year's testXpo saw the presentation of version 3.1 which incorporates many new, useful and interesting refinements such as direct export to Excel, with individual spreadsheets for parameters, results, statistics and data points (X – Y graph data) – all activated by a mouse click. Add to that free configuration of the number of data points to be exported plus the measured value grid and the result is the ideal tool for off-site evaluations.

The equally new 'Result Labeling' function features a user-friendly default setting which, with one mouse click, allows all required results to be displayed in the specimen graphic with name, value and unit, whilst offering varied options for additional labeling blocks, all of which significantly enhance the information value of the graphics.
