Drop Weight Testers for Testing of Plastic Pipes

Padostroje

With the world’s leading manufacturer of plastic piping systems, Wavin plastic pipe systems & solutions, we have implemented a project for the production of low-capacity Drop weight tester series DP.2, which will be the current testing laboratory of the production plant in the Czech Republic.

The Drop weight testing machine DPFest 250-2 with nominal energy 250J is used to test the impact resistance of plastic pipes according to DIN UNE EN 744, ISO 3127, EN 1411 and ASTM D2444 standards. The machine is equipped with a number of test strikers by additional test weights and special conical fixtures, which allows a wide range and variation of tests according to different types of plastic pipe diameter. A temperature chamber is also incorporated in the machine frame, capable of temperature adapting the test environment and the tested piping according to the required temperatures.

We bring our many years of experience to your ambitious projects …

As part of the complexity of testing this type of plastic pipe, as set by the standards, it was necessary to equip the machine with another external temperature chamber, in order to achieve maximum authenticity by simulating sudden changes in temperature of test specimens (tested pipe).

High and user-friendly operator comfort meeting all safety regulations …

Special electromechanical testing machines for testing of automotive seat locks systems

Testování sedadlových systémů

As part of the recent realization of the project, we delivered to our customer, the American company LEAR CORPORATION, three specially modified LabTest 6.250 E.3 series electromechanical testing machines with a load of up to 250 kN to their Polish plant. The machines were modified to simulate horizontal tensile testing of automotive seat locks, using sprockets and roller chains working on the principle of a pulley system, where the vertical tensile force is converted into a horizontal force.

Immediate and accurate deformation recording…

The pulley system is pulled by a crossbar, which is driven by an AC servo motor and controlled by EDCi electronics. The actual course of the tensile test is recorded by a load cell connected to the Test & Motion + software, and at the same time the visualization of the seat lock deformation is provided by 2 cameras.

Maximum use of test potential…

The special test fixture is installed in a positionably adjustable T-grooved plate, allowing testing at different axes of angle, so that the customer can use the maximum potential for their testing needs and perfect simulation of seat load tests.

Watch the video below and see for yourself how these systems work…
