Hardness test benches
The hardness testing systems are automated and/or integrated into the production process, with and without component feed.
Hardness tests on components with complicated geometries or tests in the running production can sometimes not be covered with standard hardness testers. In these cases the company Hegewald & Peschke GmbH offers you the complete engineering know-how for the realization of the testing task. Our already produced hardness testing systems include: Hardness testing stations for crankshafts, automatic rim hardness testing systems, hot hardness testing systems, circular blank testing systems and portal hardness testing systems.
The hardness tester for rims is an electromechanic special hardness tester, that is specialised for rim testing. The test frame divides in samples table, guidance device with load device followed from the test head.
This hot hardness testing machine is used to determine the hardness of metallic and ceramic high temperature materials. It enables the determination of the Vickers hardness in vacuum in the temperature range of 300-1500°C and is intended for use in the materials testing laboratory.
The testing portal is used for the hardness testing based on the Rockwell method HRC according to DIN EN ISO 6508 at large and heavy elements. The machine frame is built as a portal with a clear width of 1360mm and a clear height of 1000mm above the ball caster table, so that components up to a maximum width of about 1200mm and a maximum height of about 900mm can be crossed and tested. The minimal height of the specimen is 100mm.
Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH has developed a robot-based hardness testing station which can be used to fully automatically test the Brinell hardness of components and finished products. The fully automated hardness testing centre gives new impetus to industrial quality assurance as it offers high test speeds and evaluation independent of the user as well as automatic registration of the test results. If required, the entire production series can be thoroughly tested without the results having to be manually evaluated.
This hardness test bench for crankshafts is a especially for this case constructed machine using a Rockwell- testing head. Clamping and unclamping as well as the positioning of the test piece are manually operated. The positioning as well as the clamping of the test gripper (with hardness test head) happens motorised due to operating the corresponding controls and sensors.
This hardness tester for evaluation of Jominy-tests is an automated system composed of the following described components:
