The drag chain test made out of our equipment certifies the cable capacity for bending along the chain path
The movement patterns are run through the classic trapezoidal course profile for reflecting the strain placed on the cable in the Customer’s application. The cable is certainly subject to bending motion through trolleys that wt drag chain operate at high quickness on precision guides, powered by cogged belts. It is possible to check up to 4 chains at the same time with the same gear, with a pulling capability up to 3000 N
The test parameters (traversing distance, acceleration time, maximum speed and number of cycles) are adjustable and settable through a touchscreen panel. Through the test routine, the cables are checked by an exterior measuring system: in the event of cable break, the corresponding counter stops and the device continues to operate and test the rest of the samples until their final break (this program can be modified according to the requirements).
All characteristics can be personalized according to Customer requests.
