Horizontal test bed

Typical technical characteristics
Our test beds are specially designed for non-destructive and destructive testing of steel wire ropes, synthetic ropes, chains, shackles, etc., according to DIN ISO 2307 and EN 12385. The forces generated during testing are contained within the structure of the frame. The specimen is mounted between the clevis and the carriage pin. Typical characteristics of our test beds are: robust design, ease of use, computer control, long cylinder stroke, electronic force and elongation measurement and the use of high-quality single components. With automatic data acquisition, storage and evaluation.

The accuracy of our machines is higher than Class 1 EN ISO 7500-1:2004. They are easy to use and are manufactured according to the current European machinery directive 2006/42/EG. With more than 50 years of experience in the wire rope industry our engineers will also find the perfect solution for your application.

Special Requirements:


testbed hydraulicsThe force of a modern test bed is generated in the hydraulic power pack. We develop and assemble our units in-house. With many years of experience we are able to guarantee that the hydraulic unit runs perfectly with your machine. We only use high-quality components from leading manufacturers in order to guarantee reliable operation under the toughest conditions. This includes extremely low-wear piston and piston rod seals, double-acting hydraulic cylinders and extremely low-noise hydraulic pumps.

Load cell

The load cell forms the heart of a modern test bed. We develop our load cells ourselves and ensure that they are manufactured according to our specifications. This way, we are able to guarantee that the force measurement in general exceeds CLASS 1 of EN ISO 7500-2004-I in terms of precision. The piston rod and clevis are securely attached to the load cell in order to test the force as close to the device under test as possible.
