Zwick offers a variety of solutions for biaxial materials testing. Materials testing machines with torsion drive enable fast, precise biaxial testing (tensile or compression combined with torsion) of materials or components up to 10,000 Nm. As well as tests on artificial ball-and-socket joints and bone-replacement material, torsion tests are also performed on items such as clutch discs, steering shafts and camshafts.
Zwick's product range also includes biaxial testing machine for cruciform tests from 1 kN to 250 kN. These have four separate drives that are either controlled in master-slave mode or independently from each other via the testControl measurement and control electronics. Biaxial testing machines are especially suitable for component testing, research purposes, and individual complex test sequences.
