The drag chain test made with our equipment certifies the cable capability of bending along the chain path
The movement patterns are run through the classic trapezoidal course profile for reflecting the strain put on the cable in the Customer’s application. The cable is usually subject to bending movement through trolleys that run at high rate on precision guides, driven by cogged belts. You’ll be able to test up to 4 chains simultaneously with the same apparatus, with a pulling capability up to 3000 N
The test parameters (traversing wt drag chain distance, acceleration time, maximum speed and number of cycles) are adjustable and settable through a touchscreen panel. Through the test cycle, the cables are examined by an exterior measuring system: in case of cable break, the corresponding counter stops and the machine continues to operate and test the remaining samples until their last break (this program can be modified according to the requirements).
All characteristics could be personalized according to Customer requests.
