wt drag chain

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 movement through trolleys that run at high rate on precision guides, driven by cogged belts. It is possible to test up to 4 chains at the same time with the same equipment, with a pulling capacity up to 3000 N
The test parameters (traversing distance, acceleration time, optimum speed and number of cycles) are adjustable and settable by means of a touchscreen panel. During the test cycle, the cables are checked by an external measuring system: in case of cable break, the corresponding counter stops and the device continues to operate and test the rest of the samples until their last break (this option can be modified according to the requirements).
All characteristics could be wt drag chain personalized according to Customer requests.
