Besides their typical employment in the destructive material testing Hegewald & Peschke's testing machines are also used as calibrating machines. In this connection the task of the testing machine is primarily the calibration of external load cells. Therefor the values of the cell to be examined are compared with those of a reference load cell plugged in the machine. Possibly detected deviations of the external sensor are then adjusted within the scope of a predefined tolerance.
Such a calibrating machine by Hegewald & Peschke is used at Burster Präzisionsmesstechnik GmbH & Co. KG in Gernsbach, for example. The medium-sized family business is a supplier of precision gauges, sensors and systems for the sensor signal processing, and stands out due to precision, quality and flexibility.
