WE CELEBRATE THE 25TH BIRTHDAY

This year it is 25 years since the company was founded!

 

 

Dear customers, business partners, suppliers and friends of LABORTECH,

This year it is an incredible 25 years when the idea was born of a handful of enthusiastic people to dedicate their lives to test machines. From its original service and trading company, LABORTECH is now the only manufacturer of material destructive testing machines in Central and Eastern Europe, which has also earned a strong position on the world market and which is also boldly engaged in development activities.

The beginnings were not easy…

25 years ago, at a time when new scientific and technological approaches in the field of material engineering arose in our country, few of us could imagine a purely Czech manufacturing company focused on the production of machines for mechanical testing of materials, because at that time: “Competitive companies from Western countries have a long tradition against of us , but with greater motivation and enthusiasm, we set about fulfilling our dreams to start developing and producing our own machines.” – remebering company director Vladan Dušek.

In the words of Vladan Dušek Like any new company entering the market, where foreign competition has been firmly rooted for many years, we had to spend a lot of energy and time to eventually earn our place. It has helped us, I dare say, good preparedness and excellent knowledge of our competitors also knowledge of weak spots our compettitors.”  We are also grateful, for example, for our long-standing customers to support a purely Czech company, for which we were able to provide above-standard services and original solutions that our competitors were unable to offer in proportion: price /delivery time /originality in the solutions.

Our perservance paid off…

Since the very foundation of our company, we have emphasized close cooperation with our customers in the implementation of all projects, we provide support at the very beginning of the project and many years after it. That is why they like to come back to us with other projects. We know that this was one of the key factors in our success, in which we continue to do so today. 

 Thanks to our perseverance we have gained a strong position on the domestic market and our ambitions and interest began to turn to foreign markets, which was for us a completely new and unknown step, and as it turned out after several years, also a key and successful step. We have built a number of successful business relationships that have also expanded our product portfolio and ranked among the world leaders meeting even the most demanding requirements of our customers from more than 20 industries and scientific institutions.

 LABORTECH for the next 25 years?

“I think that over the last 10 years we have made tremendous progress in our development program, in improving customer and business partner services , but also in internal processes and systems. We want to continue working on all this and other things and expand our activities and horizons in new markets. I imagine LABORTECH for the next 25 years as a firm that is fully established on world markets and breaks down the general myth that multinational corporations , with a history of more than 100 years and many thousands of employees, must automatically be the best guarantee of quality and technological progress and vice versa it will prove that even smaller companies from seemingly insignificant countries can deliver cutting-edge technology solutions and modern approaches to the material engineering world.” – Vladan Dušek, Company Director             

We would like to thank all our customers, business partners, suppliers and friends of LABORTECH for 25 years with us…

PROMOTION EVENTS – Introducing a unique testing machine on the Czech market!

As part of our regularly held promotion events, we introduced to our customers a unique Servo-hydraulic dynamic Biaxial testing machine for multi-axis loading.

Tuesday 5.11. one of our regularly held promotion events took place in the showroom of our production hall, but this event was unique not only by the number of machines that visitors could see, but by its programm. We introduced to our guests projects that were innovative in the field of material engineering with their approach and method of application. We wanted to introduce projects that helped our customers, whether to reduce the total cost of the production process itself, increase production potential to raise potential profit or reduce the overall energy consumption of machines, thereby reducing the environmental impact.

We are also very pleased that during the presentations our customers themselves told us and shared with our colleagues the positive experience with the acquisition of our testing machines, which brought them a quick financial return, only a few months after the purchase of the equipment. We perceive these findings as a huge success.

The highlight of the event was the introduction of a Servo-hydraulic dynamic biaxial testing machine with official name LabTest 6.250H.11, which we have not yet produced in the Czech Republic. This machine was specially developed for Moscow University for multi-axis, low and high cycle loading of composites and materials for the aerospace industry.

LABORTECH at the conference of Czech and Slovakia testing laboratories

The conference of Czech and Slovak testing laboratories with LABORTECH participation!

At the end of September, an annual meeting of representatives of Czech and Slovak laboratories took place and LABORTECH was there! Our colleagues exchanged knowledge with the representatives of Czech and Slovak testing laboratories on the topics “Testing innovations”.

During the presentation of the company, we introduced our innovative approaches and methods in the field of mechanical testing applied to many of our realized projects. Our innovations and approaches have always been based on partial factors, namely increasing productivity and efficiency during the testing process and reducing total costs and energy consumption.

The conference participants were able to learn about our intelligent hydraulic units, which reduce overall energy consumption, noise during testing, as well as a semi-automatic workplace for assembly of shock absorbers, which combined more work into one unit, thus increasing production by up to 300 % and reduced the total cost by 70%, or our impact test center, which is able to dent the U or V of the sample, visually inspect it and then break through with our CHK impact hammer within 40 seconds.

Servo-hydraulic dynamic biaxial testing machines

Servo-hydraulic dynamic Biaxial cruciform testing machines LabTest 6.250H.11

Our Dynamic Servo-hydraulic systems are the driving engine of any laboratory. They can perform a wide variety of low and high cycles of fatigue, crack propagation, fracture toughness and other dynamic tests. Each system can be easily configured using a suitable frame, a hydraulic cylinder and a hydraulic drive to suit the particular application.

We are currently working on a project of manufacturing a Biaxial cruciform testing machine for mechanical testing of wings, propellers and fuselage parts in the aerospace industry, which we realize for our foreign customer. Machines of a similar type are also used in the automotive, electrical, paper, textile and medical industries.

Biaxial machines are characterized by multi-axis loading of components and sequential parts, which in the area of development serve to determine the deformation properties of materials. They also allow analysis of the behavior of the test substance under the conditions of: gradual loading, long-term cyclic loading, pseudo-rotational loading, stress concentration generation, fatigue testing.

In our Biaxial Testing Machines, we have implemented several innovative features:

  • 95% vibration damping efficiency of the pneumatic system, which does not adversely affect any other test areas or workplaces.
  • Reduced total energy consumption thanks to our modified Hydraulic Power Units.
  • More effective safety precautions thanks to the telescopic protective slide.
  • Test frame characterized by extremely high stiffness and self-resonance suppression with long life and mechanical resistance. Especially high axial and lateral stiffness.

If you would like to learn more about our biaxial machines or realize other projects, do not hesitate to contact us. We will gladly discuss with you the possibilities of realizing your projects.

ROBOTIC WORKSTATIONS FOR MECHANICAL TESTS

At our development center, we are constantly working on innovations in the field of mechanical testing automation and their variable solutions. Currently, we are dedicated to developing a robotic workstation for tensile testing, with the possibility of extending it to other units or peripherals within a single workplace. Thanks to our many years of automation experience, we are able to produce more workplaces (eg for tensile tests and impact tests) with the use of one robotic device for maximum productivity and efficiency to reduce the overall cost of production.

The main advantages and features of our robotic workstations:

  • Continuous and safe operation to meet the strictest standards
  • Low operating and maintenance costs including 100% machine load
  • High sampling and sampling speed (depending on test type and material tested)
  • Modular workstation solutions – the possibility of adding new workstations or additional peripherals (eg QR code reader, sample size measurement, notching devices, optical inspection, temperature chamber and many others).
  • Work in manual mode if necessary
  • Variety of sample containers

WORLD RECORDS BROKEN IN LABORTECH

Golem´s teeth in action: tearing cans and biting coins

On the day exactly, five years since his dad’s passing, René Richter prepared five attempts to break world records. However, due to the slope of the floor in the hall in Budišov nad Budišovkou, he did just three.

“Today it will be about the bite!”, said the forty-four-year-old strongman from Hlavnice near Opava called Golem at LaborTech company headquarters. He took pride in the fact that in the US, Staley’s Super Humans TV show had seen his teeth grip “stronger than the alligator” some time ago.

The last time he visited at the dentist was in the first year of his training as a cook many years ago, but even so, in 51:13 seconds, he managed to lift five 1-metre-long concrete curbs, each weighing 82 kilograms. And his coach, Jiří Týn, was hammering them. He smashed four = a record!

“I don’t feel pain. But I brush my teeth regularly and properly, I have a wife, I don’t want her to run away from me…”, said Golem, whose advertising of Viking’s healthy teeth is also remembered in Sweden. He pulled a tram in Stockholm with his own teeth back then.

The second Budišov record was to grind five 2€ coins in 56:20 seconds. He pressed out the outer ring from the inner fillings. “Here’s the hard currency. Euros tend to break, while Czech 50s are softer and rather bend”, he said.

 

Golem described his abilities as “a gift from God.” He started to entertain himself with power performances more than twenty years ago; during that time he became quite established in the Guinness Book of Records. “I practice and eat …” said the strongman working as a chef at the Relax Boarding House in Podlesí.

As the third record, he planned to bite beer cans in two pieces. “I have respect, but I want to manage that,” he said before the most impressive number. He ripped the aluminium containers like a machine and he destroyed thirty-one within 56 seconds. He cut his mouth just a little.

“I planned it as my dad’s memorial, who supported me vastly and left us forever five years ago,” Golem explained. He has already sent video recordings and witness signatures to the World Record Company for recognition.

However, both pulling of a fifteen-ton truck in the teeth for five meters and an attempt to carry the same colossus in a way of arm wrestling style did not take place. “There is no flat floor,” said the strongman, who moved the truck at least a little as a training and for the amusement of the onlookers.

 

CONGRATULATIONS to René GOLEM for achieving 3 world records!

The advantages of the Instrumentation of LABORTECH Pendulum impact testers

In connection with our recent launch of our new websites, we have decided that will offer our instrumented pendulum impact testers series CHK.2 up to 450J for a special price equalling the basic machine. When you buy our instrumented pendulums LABTEST CHK 450J-I and LABTEST CHK 450J-IA you will get an above-standard machine for a price of a basic one. And what is the advantage of the instrumentation of our pendulum impact testers against the non-instrumented ones?

 

  1. GRAPHIC TEST PROCESSING – IMPACTTest software displaying of the graphical test course curve in dependence of force, timeSoftware Impact test or deformation
  2. DETAILED ANALYSIS OF VALUES – beside of standard characteristic of force values (Fgy, Fm, Fiu, Fa also a detailed analysis of the characteristic values of the deflection quantities (Sgy, Sm, Siu, Sa, St) and values of impact work (Wm, Wiu, Wa, Wt)
  3. INTEGRAL ENERGY CALCULATION – option of more accurate integral calculation of the integral energy calculation from the area under the curve then it is for the non-instrumented version coming from the angle calculation.
