LABORTECH has become one of the few companies in the world to develop a testing machine for HOPKINSON method. The HPTest 60 – HIGH STRAIN RATE TESTING ELEMENTS OF HOPKINSON operates on the principle of a split Hopkinson bar and is primarily designed for compression tests on materials subjected to impact loading. As stated by Weinong and Bo, the Hopkinson device – HPTest 60 is not only used for compression tests. The HPTest 60 testing machine from LABORTECH is utilized to determine the dynamic mechanical properties of steels, aluminum alloys, copper, titanium, and other technical metallic and non-metallic materials (especially plastics, glass, ceramics, foams, and more).

 

These tests can also be conducted at elevated temperatures, up to 500 °C. Through these tests, stress-strain curves, deformation rates, or just numerical values ​​of maximum dynamic stress acting on the sample can be obtained. Standard Hopkinson compression tests are employed to determine the mechanical properties of the material under compressive impact loading. The equipment consists of input and output bars, with the sample placed between them. An accelerated impactor strikes the input bar, transferring its kinetic energy to it. Part of the impactor’s kinetic energy is consumed in the plastic deformation of the sample, and the remainder is transferred to the output bar, which is supported at the end by a flexible block. 

 

The dynamic mechanical properties are determined from the Hopkinson test through elastic pulses, which are captured by two high-speed strain gauge sensors connected to high-speed electronics. We are proud to have joined the ranks of a few companies worldwide. Many thanks to all designers, application engineers, and programmers.

The LabTest SST 6.10-5.1 testing machine for testing the load capacity of rack shelves is a key piece of equipment for ensuring the safety and reliability of storage. This machine makes it possible to accurately determine the maximum weight and load (max. 50kN – 5x10kN per shelf) that a given rack or overall racking system can bear, thus preventing accidents and damage to inventory. The LabTest SST testing machine is equipped with a system for monitoring and recording data about the tests performed. This makes it possible to document the results and monitor changes in the load capacity of the racks over time.

Types of tests: The LabTest SST rack load testing machine performs various types of tests, including static tests (testing the load capacity under static loads) and dynamic tests (simulating dynamic loads such as loading or unloading goods).

Load capacity: Each racking system has a specific load capacity, and the testing machine is able to simulate a load close to this capacity. This includes both the weight of the stored goods and their distribution on the shelves.

Safety Standards: The rack shelf load capacity testing machine meets relevant safety standards to ensure that tests are carried out safely.

Monitoring and data logging: The machine is equipped with a system to monitor and record data about the tests performed. This makes it possible to document the results and monitor changes in the load capacity of the racks over time.

Calibration: An important part is the regular calibration of the machine by LABORTECH to ensure the accuracy of the test results.

Test results: Once the test has been performed, the results are available in a suitable format to make decisions about the safety of the racking system. This includes load capacity values and other relevant information.

 Service support: Access to service support and experts from LABORTECH is important, as they can perform maintenance and repairs on the machine when needed.
