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…

LABORTECH machines guarantee quality during testing of fasteners

Marcopol Sp. z o.o., which is a leading manufacturer and supplier of fasteners, recently included our universal testing machine of the E.3 LabTest 6.500 series in its testing laboratory.

The LabTest 6.500 testing machine has become a key part of the testing laboratory of the quality control department, where it ensures, among other things, the determination of the strength parameters of the tested material: screws, rods, wires or chains. The machine is equipped with a number of accessories such as wedge self-locking grips, videoextensometer ONE and more.

Using Test & Motion software, the machine evaluates measurements of tensile strength, yield strength or elasticity. As Marcopol itself states “This basic but extremely important study guarantees the high quality of our products adapted to the expectations of construction investment experts not only in Europe but also worldwide. And the fasteners we supply for construction investments therefore meet the requirements international technical standards. “

We are glad that this is precisely our machine that Marcopol can rely on in its research activities.

In the image below you will find a link to a video of the machine, taken directly from the Marcopol laboratory.

Electromechanical testing machine LabTest 6.600 – Innovative solutions for ambitious projects

Hydraulické čelisti, zkušební příslušenství

As part of a project for the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Environmental Engineering of the Lodz University in Poland, we realized the production of the LabTest 6.600 E.3 machine. Thanks to the typology of the tested material and the conditions for testing, we have made several innovative modifications to this machine. One of the most significant modifications of the device, in addition to the raised frame, is the possibility of testing composite materials, namely fiberglass concrete reinforcements. For this reason, we created enlarged inserts for the grips with increased frictional force in the bearing surface, and therefore it was necessary to make more robust hydraulic grips with side pressure.

Since the clamping of fiberglass reinforcements is a very specific discipline, so thanks to many years of experience in this field with our engineers, we have developed a method combining 3 factors:

  • Creation of special grips with inserts
  • Automatically controlled pressure in the grips
  • developing a specific clamping surface on the hydraulic grips

Modified hydraulic grips also offer the possibility of attaching other accessories to the grips, such as accessories for 3 and 4 point bending, without the need to disassemble them.
