Material Testing with ZwickRoell

Integration of QuantumX in ZwickRoell testing machines enables easier and more precise measurements

Integration of QuantumX in ZwickRoell Testing Machines

Zwick Roell is a global leader in material properties testing. The integration of HBK’s QuantumX data acquisition system raises the insights gained from these tests to a new level.

Static material testing machines are specially designed for tensile, compression and flexure tests, as well as for shear and torsional tests, so they are ideal for performing complex tasks in the field of material and component testing. But there are also dynamic and fatigue testing systems for specific application areas. Modular robotic testing systems are becoming increasingly common, allowing for the performance of efficient and reproducible tests. Customized solutions can be put together using standardized components.

System Topology of a Compression Testing Machine With Integrated QuantumX Module

Any QuantumX module can be integrated into a ZwickRoell tensile/compression testing machine. In the following example, the QuantumX MX1615B strain gauge amplifier is used to determine the strains of a material or coupon under load.

HBM strain gauges are attached on to the sample and connected to the bridge amplifier. In addition, other transducers or active sensors, such as RTD-resistant, temperature measurement transducers such as Pt100/Pt500/Pt1000, can be connected to gain further insights. The fully time-synchronized measurement data directly streams into ZwickRoell’s testXpert® III software.

Incidentally, the integration of the QuantumX family enables the test setup not only to acquire strain, but also force, torque, displacement, temperature, flow, pressure and many more physical quantities.

Main Advantages of Integrating QuantumX into ZwickRoell Testing Machines

  • High flexibility, by simply adding any transducer/sensor

  • Highest precision due to HBK's patented technology

  • Complete measurement chain from one supplier

  • Versatile use protects your investment for many different setups

The enabled use of strain gauges and the flexibility of integrating any sensor in material testing, allows a new level of simplified measurement and testing.

The extensometers installed in the testing machine for displacement measurement mainly covers standardized samples. However, integrating the QuantumX MX1615B module opens the door to best-in-class strain measurement, taking advantage of patented wiring schemes as well as noise-suppressing carrier-frequency excitation technology.

The whole measurement setup can easily be scaled up by adding other or additional QuantumX modules.

Integration Workflow in catman and testXpert® III

The sensors of the QuantumX module are now listed under 'Machine'. If the channels were also created under 'Test specification', they are linked to the corresponding sensor and are ready for use.

To ensure that the strain gauge measures synchronously with the other sensors, a 5V signal is sent to an input channel of the QuantumX module and the returning signal is read in.

In testXpert®, all channels that are set to the default sample rate will later be visible. The maximum sample rate in conjunction with testXpert® is 1200 Hz.

To test the configuration, we suggest a test measurement and visualization.

To use the created measurement configuration of the QuantumX module in testXpert® III, it must be saved as a .mep file.
