Zwick USA, the subsidiary of global materials and component testing equipment leader Zwick/Roell AG, will be demonstrating its zwicki-Line system at the BIOMEDevice Conference and Exposition to be held here April 10 and 11.
The zwicki-Line system, manufactured in accordance with rigorous quality standards, is ideal for product development as well as routine quality control in manufacturing environments, said Dan Lopez, medical industry marketing manager for Zwick USA.
“The zwicki-Line offers the flexibility and programmability medical device customers require. In combination with unique fixturing and optional torsional testing package, zwicki-Line systems support the product development and quality management efforts of several key manufacturers of injection pen and personal dosimetry devices,” Lopez said.
The zwicki-Line system is also available with programmable software features and a wide variety of mechanical fixturing to support applications ranging from testing the flexure characteristics of guide wires to determining plunger actuation force of sterile single-use hypodermic syringes.
“Zwick’s commitment to addressing the needs of customers in the medical device market is demonstrated through its investment in industry-leading testXpert® II measurement and control software,” Lopez said.
All zwicki-Line systems include Zwick’s testXpert II software. An optional expanded traceability package includes tools such as electronic signature capture and an electronics records function that supports FDA CFR Part 11 requirements.
The unique testControl digital controller offered exclusively by Zwick incorporates an adaptive drive control system that ensures force or extension control is correctly maintained during the test.
