Zwick equips testing laboratory at Gestamp, Pune

Gestamp is an international group dedicated to the design, development and manufacture of metal automotive components. The Group specializes in developing innovatively designed products to achieve increasingly safer and lighter vehicles, thereby reducing energy consumption and environmental impact. Gestamp is present in 21 countries with a plant also in Pune region.

In order to carry out necessary material tests, Gestamp located in Chakan, Pune is using a 150kN Universal testing Machine from Zwick. This 150kN floor standing UTM will be used for performing tensile, compression and flexure tests at ambient temperature in two test areas. The UTM is equipped with fully automatic macro extensometer to automatically measure elongation upto break of the specimens starting from automatic gauge length setting, closing / opening of sensors arm and hence avoiding any human intervention to ensure reliable test results. To measure transverse strain, a non-contact device, videoXtens,  is offered which eliminates contact forces in transverse direction, allowing thin specimens to be tested properly.

“We are using Zwick Roell make Universal Testing Machine from 2010 onwards. This machine is very good in terms of accuracy of results and easy to handle. Its testXpert software is very versatile to use and user friendly. Zwick customer support team is very efficient in all respects like on time response, quick feedback, technical knowledge, systematic approach. Machine helped a lot to build structure data to analyzed steel mill issue & in localization of steel mills” quoted by Mr. Suraj Laxman Hoval, Lab Incharge at Gestamp.
