Zwick's pre-owned range includes machines and instruments used in our own in-house laboratories and development departments, as well as ex-display items. Zwick also acquires pre-owned machines from customers who no longer need their testing machine or have decided to replace it with a newer machine. Only in this way is Zwick able to offer such a broad spectrum of pre-owned machines.
For all pre-owned testing machines and instruments Zwick guarantees absolute operability plus up-to-date testing technology. In most cases pre-owned testing machines are broken down to their individual components, wear-parts are replaced and if necessary the machine is modernized and repainted. Thorough overhaul and preparation ensures that a pre-owned testing machine is absolutely equal to a new machine with regard to operability, reliability of service and future-upgradability. The use of modern te
stControl II testing technology, together with the latest version of our testXpert II testing software, provides modularity and flexibility, enabling a rapid response to new requirements in the future.
We also overhaul and modernize pre-owned machines by other manufacturers and equip them with current Zwick testing technology. Nearly 40% of our modernizations are carried out on other makes of testing machine; our manufacturer-independent modernization package allows machines and instruments from some 50 different manufacturers to be so treated, becoming in the process genuine Zwick materials testing machines.
