The drag chain test made out of our equipment certifies the cable capacity for bending along the chain path
The movement patterns 235.1are run through the classic trapezoidal course wt drag chain profile for reflecting the strain put on the cable in the Customer’s application. The cable is usually subject to bending movement through trolleys that operate at high speed on precision guides, powered by cogged belts. You’ll be able to check up to 4 chains at the same time with the same apparatus, with a pulling capability up to 3000 N
The test parameters (traversing distance, acceleration time, optimum speed and number of cycles) are adjustable and settable through a touchscreen panel. During the test cycle, the cables are examined by an external measuring system: in case of cable break, the corresponding counter stops and the machine continues to use and test the rest of the samples until their final break (this program can be modified based on the requirements).
All characteristics could be personalized according to Customer requests.
