Last month Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH delivered a Universal Testing Machine of the type Inspekt 600kN for metal tension experiments according to standard to Benteler Steel/Tube GmbH. Benteler Steel/Tube, located in the city of Bottrop, Germany, engineers and manufactures custom tubes for a variety of applications, for example, for automotive manufacturing. The tubes are seamless hot-rolled steel tubes or seamless cold-drawn precision steel tubes.
The test space height of the 600kN testing machine with ball screw was extended with this series by 500 mm compared to standard machines. The scope of delivery included a hydraulic clamping tool as well as a longitudinal extensometer.
Metal tubes of different sizes and dimensions are tested for tensile strength. Tensile testing for metallic materials is defined in DIN EN ISO 6892-1.
