Zwick USA the worldâ€™s leading supplier of materials test machines who machines are used for R&D and quality assurance in more than twenty industries will be demonstrating industry leading textile and composite materials testing solutions at the Techtextil North America Exhibition to be held from May 3-5 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.
Bob Donohue, regional sales manager for Zwick USA said that as applications for technical textiles continue to evolve, the materials that are incorporated into these advanced products evolve as well â€“ requiring varied and robust gripping and elongation measurement options.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to see product demonstrations and to discuss a variety of application topics ranging from technical fabrics for passenger vehicle seat belts to novel nonwovens and medical- grade textiles.
At this yearâ€™s event, Zwick will demonstrate its single column zwickiLine testing system. The zwickiLine system will perform tensile, elongation, tear, peel, cycle, and seam slippage tests on textile specimens with specialized grips that conform to industry standards. Zwickâ€™s testing platforms range from single column table top models to dual column table top models to floor standing models for high capacity solutions.
Zwick has responded to changing customer needs through its development of novel gripping and extensometer solutions. With a suite of extensometers to suit varying challenges and budgets, Zwick enables textiles manufacturers to select the extensometer that best meets their needs, Donohue said.
For samples where whiplash is not a concern, Zwick offers contact extensometers in clip-on and sensor arm formats. For whiplash-prone samples such as seatbelts, Zwick has developed a suite of non-contact extensometers that includes the laserXtensÂ® laser extensometer, the videoXtensÂ® video extensometer and an optical extensometer.
Through its industry-leading testXpertÂ® II measurement and control software, Zwick supports a wide range of applications â€” from tensile tests on fibers and filaments and elastic behavior of elastomeric yarns to strength testing as well as delamination and adhesion of fabrics â€” in accordance with corresponding ASTM, ISO and DIN standards.
Zwick has invested in its software platform to offer simplicity in the interface along with a robust standards library, making testXpert II a valuable tool for busy test labs.
Zwick USA has provided innovative, intelligent testing solutions to customers in North America for more than 20 years. They are pleased to confirm their commitment to the future of materials testing, a future in which they have made substantial investments. Their primary goal is to support their customers and their testing objectives
