The drag chain test made out of our equipment certifies the cable capability of bending along the chain path
The movement patterns are run through the classic trapezoidal course profile for reflecting the wt drag chain china stress placed on the cable in the Customer’s application. The cable is usually subject to bending motion through trolleys that run at high speed on precision guides, powered by cogged belts. You’ll be able to test up to 4 chains simultaneously with the same apparatus, with a pulling capability up to 3000 N
The test parameters (traversing distance, acceleration time, maximum speed and number of cycles) are adjustable and settable by means of a touchscreen panel. Through the test cycle, the cables are checked by an external measuring system: in the event of cable break, the corresponding counter stops and the machine continues to use and test the rest of the samples until their last break (this program can be modified based on the requirements).
All characteristics can be personalized according to Client requests.
