General product description

Test rig and mountings for tension and compression testing for different types of glasses.
The test rig is made of a solid coated metal frame. An electromechanical servo axis is installed in the center. Those raises controlled force loads to the specimen.
The compressing indenter attachment and the bearing are made of an Ø 50 mm steel shaft, coated with rubber, and inserted in high performance slide bearings. Operating is force controlled.

There are three different indenters to choose from:

G: Glass (single-pane and toughened safety glass)
SG: Shipbuilding and marine structures
E: Welded corner and T-joint
The measurement occurs by a protected measuring system with a range of 300 mm that is installed protected in the electromechanic cylinder. A premium load cell and a carries frequency amplifier measure the force load.
The evaluation of the breaking load and the recording of the measured values in Excel format take place by the software. A graph visualizes the test run.
The surrounding and the operating staff are protected by a Plexiglas hood. Furthermore a security check against glass fragments is installed at the doors.
A container catches the cullet below the test rig. Costly cleaning time is herby avoided.



Modifications


On request the following options can be offered:

  • Hydraulic tension and compression test rig (comparable to electromechanical module however, load initialization via a servo regulated hydraulic spindle and 50 kN premium load cell)
  • Bending strength of plate glasses (EN 1288-3; four point bending indenter and four point controlling bearing incl. rubber coating)
  • Attachment for testing of PVC and plastic corners (standard EN 514; base plate and intender)
  • Testing of timber blanks and semi-finished profiles according to DIN EN 13307 standard (adjustable 4-point indenter)
  • Adjustable 4-point bending indenter:
    • 4-point support
    • Max. length of specimen: 1,100 mm
    • Adjustable support and indenter
    • Rotatable support points
  • Excel analysis software for comfortable evaluation as well as continuous quality monitoring according to the standar
  • Individual coating in RAL colours

Note: Individual features, especially for your needs, can be provided after consulting.
