Zwick Roell Opens Training Center for Materials Testing in India

Testing machine manufacturer Zwick Roell AG, Ulm, Germany, in collaboration with the aid organization Don Bosco Mondo e.V., opened the Zwick Roell Training Academy in Chennai, India, at the end of June. Disadvantaged youths will take part in a one-year training program here to become testing machine operators, easing their entry into working life and thereby giving them an opportunity for a better future.

Beginning in the summer of 2016, the Zwick Roell Training Academy at the Don Bosco Tech Campus, located in the heart of one of Chennai’s poorest districts, will train disadvantaged youths to become testing machine operators. Zwick Roell leased an empty hall here, which it then renovated and equipped with state-of-the-art materials testing machines. The equipment ranges from various static testing machines to hardness testing devices, a pendulum impact tester and a melt index testing instrument. Two instructors employed for the training program will qualify six to twelve young people to become materials testing machine operators each year. One training focus will be on testing metals and plastics. Zwick Roell will additionally use the laboratory for customer demonstrations and contract testing.
