In October, Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH has delivered an electromechanical Universal Testing Machine Inspekt 250 kN to the state institution "Staatliche Materialprüfungsanstalt (MPA)" and the "Institut für Werkstoffkunde (IfW) Darmstadt". The Universal Testing Machine shall be used both for various applications in the area of research and development and for standard tests, e.g. metal tensile tests according to DIN EN ISO 6892 or pressure tests according to DIN 50106.
A variety of measuring and peripheral devices can be connected to the testing machine for this purpose. The diversity of tests that shall be conducted with the Inspekt 250 kN requires a high data acquisition rate for the recorded measurements. These measurements are output via an external measuring amplifier.
The testing machine is equipped with a rigid loadframe. In addition, it features a large test space height with a second test chamber where smaller forces up to 20 kN can be tested.
Furthermore, the subsequent integration of a temperature chamber is possible.
The "Staatliche Materialprüfungsanstalt Darmstadt (MPA)" and the speciality area and "Institut für Werkstoffkunde (IfW)" are integrated in the centre for construction materials at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. It constitutes the competency centre for the entire field of material technology of machine and plant engineering as well as traffic engineering, medical technology and the construction industry.
