Test Benches for Chains

Brake Test Bench
  • Life time tests of plastic chains
  • Traction mechanism: slide chains or modular belts of plastic
  • Velocity: up to 0,5 m/s
  • Braking force ( chain tension) up to 1.500 N
  • Chain length: about 3.000 mm
  • Possibilities of measurement: drive torque, braking torque, number of cycles, efficiency (friction losses)
Plastic Chain Conveyors
  • Analysis of force and movement as well as wear characteristics of plastic chains
  • Traction mechanism: slide chains or modular belts of plastic
  • Load / velocity: to be defined
  • Possibilities of measurement: drive torque/ chain tension during circulation/ number of cycles/ temperatures
Carrying Chain Conveyors
  • Analysis of force and movement as well as wear characteristics of lubricated or dry running conveyor chains
  • Traction mechanism: carrying chain conveyors, especially accumulation roller chains
  • Load/ velocity: to be defined
  • Possibilities of measurement: drive torque/ accumulation force/ number of cycles/ chain elongation/ temperatures
