L&T trusts Zwick Roell for intelligent testing.

Hazira Manufacturing Complex of L&T is one of the best manufacturing facilities in the world with cutting edge equipment and technology for manufacturing of large sized equipment for Process Plant, Nuclear and Defence sectors. Hazira Manufacturing Complex is L&T’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located on the banks of River Tapi near the Arabian sea (about 16 km away from Surat, Gujarat). The facility spreads over more than 750 acres of land with a 1.6 km long water front facility. It employs more than 5000 people directly and more than 12,500 people indirectly.

Materials testing is a crucial part of the quality control system and especially for Nuclear or Defence sector. L&T at Hazira has a well-equipped testing laboratory with a range of testing equipment including a 330kN Zwick UTM. This 330kN UTM with pneumatic wedge grips & most advanced automatic makroXtens II extensometer assures reliable test results for their production. The intelligent makroXtens II extensometer is already calibrated from a measurement travel of 20 mµ in class 0.5 & can be used up to specimen break. The extensometer fulfills the stringent test requirements of strain rate control test according to ISO 6892-1 & ASTM E 8.


“The 330kN UTM supplied by Zwick India had some special features with respect to testing of steels such as, manual zeroing of load imposed on the specimen before carrying out  test, proper alignment while testing flat specimens, recording of uniform plastic elongation and uniform total elongation as a part of tensile properties, determination of elastic modulus etc. which are admirable.


The training and support provided by executive of Zwick India during commissioning was commendable.


The overall experience of using 330kN UTM was unified and praiseworthy.” quoted by Mr. Avinash Pandey, Project Monitoring Group
