Vibrophores provide a cost-effective solution for fatigue testing of materials or components. Vibrophores are mainly used to determine fatigue strength in the areas of finite life fatigue and high cycle fatigue. The operating principle of the HFP 5100 is based on the concept of a mechanical resonator and it is constructed as a 3-mass resonance testing machine. The pre-owned 150 HFP 5100 vibrophores are equipped with a mean load of ± 150 kN and a maximum force amplitude of ± 75 kN.
Before a testing machine is offered for sale in the ZwickRoell Online Pre-owned Market, it undergoes a thorough refurbishment to ensure that it conforms to ZwickRoell's quality standards. ZwickRoell guarantees that all pre-owned test equipment is fully operational and conforms to current testing technology.
Current testing technology
With every pre-owned testing machine or pre-owned testing instrument you receive current testing technology from ZwickRoell.
Absolute service reliability
A pre-owned testing machine provides the same absolute service reliability since the warranty is identical to that of new machines. This also applies to pre-owned machines from other manufacturers.
Reliable spare parts availability
ZwickRoell ensures spare parts availability for at least ten years, and can provide fast help via the Hotline or directly on-site in case of a problem.
Comprehensive accessory portfolio
Since pre-owned testing machines from ZwickRoell are updated with the latest technology in terms of measurement and control electronics and testing software, sensors, test tools or other accessories can be added from the comprehensive portfolio. It is therefore easy to implement new test requirements.
Modern and energy-efficient drive
Within the framework of the modernization, the static drive is replaced with a modern, energy-efficient AC motor with greatly enhanced control and positioning accuracy.
Modified load cell
The existing load cell is modified, re-calibrated and combined with a new accelerometer. As an alternative, a new Xforce dynamic load cell with integrated accelerometer can be used.
Innovative testControl II machine electronics
All ZwickRoell materials testing machines are equipped with the powerful testControl II measurement and control electronics, offering the ideal basis for precise, reproducible test results. The electronics are mounted vertically on the side of the load frame. This position protects the electronics from penetration of liquids and conductive particles. The high-quality finish protects testControl II from external influences. In addition, the components used are highly durable.
- Adaptive control – all required control parameters are set automatically for the quick and exact approach of target positions.
- Controller set-up – special controller set-up for testing situations with demanding control requirements. For example, if the force sensor is located on the fixed crosshead in force-controlled tests, the controller can simply be switched in the software.
- Flexibility through modularity – testControl II offers six flexible time-synchronized slots. These make it possible to use multiple sensors at the same time. They can be monitored and protected irrespective of use.
Ergonomic remote control with color display
Tests can be performed entirely via the display remote control, independently of the PC. All important information is shown on the color display. Machine operation is therefore more ergonomic and effective. The highest level of safety for the operator is ensured with an integrated emergency stop. The rocker-switch with integrated dial makes positioning fast yet highly accurate.
