"The expo is very focused with everything key to the industry in one hall"
Dagmar Kirchof, Leistritz

The international exhibition for the polymer testing industry

Professionals from throughout the materials supply chain will come together at Polymer Testing Expo 2021 to view and compare a wide range of laboratory equipment, systems and services for assessing the quality and performance of plastic formulations and products.

Discover and debate the latest innovations and best practices in polymer testing, characterisation and analysis in the dedicated conference theatre, featuring two days of presentations on the latest advances in testing and analysing polymer materials, compounds and products. Join the industry at this important new forum for scientists, laboratory staff, researchers and R&D professionals who develop, test and analyse new polymer materials, formulations and products.

Both the exhibition and the conference are free for visitors to attend, and is co-located with the Compounding World Expo, Polymer Extrusion World Expo, and Plastics Recycling World Expo.

Wolfram Schuetz
Schütz Licht

Mr. Wolfram Schuetz’s father founded in 1970 the company and developed the machines for the specimen’s preparation. Mr. Schuetz is as engineer technically well prepared.

He started the distribution, modernization and service of Machines for destructive material testing. Initially, these were machines for Sample preparation. Later used hardness testers as well as pendulum impact were added.

In 1996, an Accreditation according to ISO17025 as a DKD calibration laboratory (today DAkkS). Over in the company's history, the product portfolio has been expanded with new machines:
- 2004 GALDABINI universal testers + pendulum impact units
- 2006 INNOVATEST Hardness Testing Machines
- 2007 METKON Metallography
- 2013 ZEISS microscopes

With this product range, we have developed into a full-service supplier and are able to offer almost the entire area of destructive material testing - unique in German testing technology. Every year we calibrate > 4,000 ...
- Universal testing machines for tension / pressure and axiality
- Extensometer (strain meter)
- Hardness testers Vickers, Brinell and Rockwell
- Pendulum impacts

As early as 1996, our company was founded by the Physical Technical Federal Institute in accordance with ISO17025 is accredited for the calibration of material testing machines.
