Hegewald & Peschke Meß- und Prüftechnik GmbH and EKF Automation GmbH have developed a test center for flat and round specimens made out of high quality steels. By the cooperation, the measurement technology company intends to expand its range of products in the field of automated material testing. An efficient 6-axis industrial robot with special gripper carries out the specimen handling. The testing machine Inspekt 400 kN by Hegewald & Peschke is the core technology of the test center. The testing system allows non-contact strain-controlled metal tensile tests in accordance with DIN EN ISO 6892-1 in automatic mode and 24-hour operation cycles.
Development cooperation for the fully automated material testing
Metalworking companies are focusing increasingly on automated testing systems and their advantages: A higher machine utilization, lower personnel and test costs. Offering high testing speed as well as a user independent evaluation and an automatic registration of the testing results, the test center gives a new impulse to industrial quality assurance.
The test center has been developed in cooperation with the Dresden EKF Automation GmbH, one of the leading suppliers in automation and robotics, on behalf of a big German steel company and comprises a number of technical innovations.
