testXpert II Testing Software

Intuitive and Workflow-Based Right from the Start!

testXpert III is the result of close cooperation with software users in the materials testing industry and the experience of over 30,000 successful testXpert installations. From the very start, testXpert III uses a workflow that is based on your lab processes to guide you step by step through your test.

Getting started is easy!

Our workflow-based software keeps training time to a minimum and makes testing efficient and reliable. The intuitive interface is identical for all Zwick materials testing machines and instruments— enabling efficient testing, from simple standard-based tests to demanding tests in research and development.
The clear, logically structured workflow guides the operator the whole way, through test preparation, execution, and results analysis, establishing a clearly identifiable visual association of all related content, ensuring fast, easy navigation. A newly structured user interface with large, expressive icons helps you navigate through the software easily so you can start testing quickly.
