The Arco model leaf spring testing machine is the ideal solution for performing compression and bending tests on leaf springs mainly intended for railway and automotive applications.
THE RAILWAY SECTOR, ONE OF THE MOST REGULATED EVER, IS AMONG THE MAIN SECTORS IN WHICH EASYDUR OPERATES
Over the decades, Easydur has established strong partnerships with railway operators and other companies of the railway sector all over the world. Easydur machines for testing rail bogies, coil springs/leaf springs and rail shock absorbers are high-precision instruments that meet the most stringent industry standards (DIN 25043-7, EN 13802, UIC 821: 2003, DIN 2094).
Easydur testing systems dedicated to the railway sector can perform compression tests on various types of components. Moreover, it is also possible to measure the transversal and lateral stiffness (chasse) of springs and bogies, bending angles and carry out dimensional measurements.
Lastly, Easydur also manufactures hardness testing machines with a special rotary table for tests on railway wheels.
MACHINES FOR TESTS ON RAILWAY COMPONENTS
BOGIE TEST STAND
Bogie Test Stand with fixed crossbar for 15+15 0r 20+20 tonnes compression tests on bogies. Equipped with two electric or hydraulic pressers, equippable with optional “chasse” test device for testing lateral forces of all kinds of bogies (passenger trains, cargo trains, metros, trams). Compliant to the EN 13820 standard.
The term “Chasse” designates the family of Easydur spring testing machines devoted to the detection of axial, transversal and lateral stiffness, deflection and bowing angle according to Railway standards. Such measurements can be achieved through a fully-motorized platform. Aura Chasse series of spring testing machines for special applications is available in models with capacities ranging from 50 kN to 600 kN.
FAT SHOCK ABSORBER
Electromechanical instrument for fatigue test, particularly suitable for tests on shock-absorbers/dampers. Measures forces in extension and compression and allows working at different angles, thanks to it rotating structure. This Dynamic Damper Testing Machine is compliant with Standard EN 13802.
HYDRAULIC AURA CHASSE
Aura Chasse Hydraulic is a coil spring scragging and load deflection (chasse) railway springs testing machine. In this configuration, three load cells are mounted on the instrument at 120° for axial load calculation with a reading speed of 1000 Hz and 200.000 parts divisions for a very high-resolution real time reading.
SPECIAL HARDNESS TESTING SYSTEMS
Easydur also develops special hardness testing systems for Vickers, Rockwell and Brinell tests up to 3000kg on very particular components (in fact of shapes, dimensions and weight). The model shown here has been specifically developed for high-precision measurements on railway wheels, and achieves a previously unseen level of flexibility thanks to the manual or motor-driven X-Y table, which allows to perform multiple hardness tests on the same component, by effortlessly rotating it.
