As part of its product development, ThyssenKrupp Presta will use the new testing machine for performing cyclic tests on swivel levers. The goal of the test is to determine the stiffness and change in stiffness of a component during the test time according to a specified cyclic test profile. It also determines the settlement of a rubber stop during the test time.
The drive for the LTM 10 (Fmax 10 kN) is based on linear motor technology, which means no hydraulic infrastructure is required for operation. Thanks to the testXpert R testing software, test sequences can be configured at anytime. Additionally, static tensile, compression, and flexure tests can be performed with the testing machine.
