Special Testing Machines

Hegewald & Peschke develops and manufactures individual testing machines for testing unusual components and finished products. When developing special solutions, customers benefit from the proven and mature basic design of the Inspekt series. With its modular basic design, the Inspekt series allows changes to the load frame geometry. In this way, customised inspection systems for solving individual inspection tasks quickly become reality, even when implementing very detailed customer requests.

High temperature testing system up to 1,800°C

Special testing machine inspekt S 50 kN

The high temperature testing system is based on the universal testing machine series inspekt. The inspekt S 50kN high-temperature testing machine from Hegewald & Peschke can be used to determine the mechanical properties of metallic and ceramic materials as well as metalloceramic composites. These are used, for example, as heat shields in space technology or as heat-insulating building materials. 

Calibration machine for three load cells

Testing machine 10 kN and 50 kN for calibration purposes

Universal testing machine inspekt table 10 kN or inspekt table 50 kN as calibration machine, equipped with three load cells. The testing machine is designed for testing and calibrating load cells in different force ranges. 

Determination of the abrasion and friction properties on deep-drawn sheets

Special testing machines for strip tensile tests, friction tests and draw-bead tests

  • Branch: Automotive industry

This testing machine allows to determining the abrasion and friction properties on deep-drawn sheets. Those sheets are used e.g. for engine bonnets, car wings, doors or pillars. The corresponding test procedure is the draw-bead-test.

Nominal ring stiffness testing of glass fibre-reinforced plastic pipes

Special testing machine inspekt S-XL 600 kN & special testing machine inspekt SH 500 kN

  • Branch: plastics industry

Piping systems made of spun glass fibre reinforced polyester resins are mainly used for drinking water and waste water pipes and in irrigation and drainage systems. The pipe diameter can vary between 150 mm and 4200 mm. As the pipes are exposed to high pressure loads during installation, determining the mechanical properties is of central importance. This is done by testing the ring stiffness. Ring stiffness describes the strength behaviour of plastic pipes. Characteristic values are the crown compressive strength according to DIN EN 1228 as well as the compressive and circumferential elongation. All values are determined in both the circumferential and longitudinal directions.

Hegewald & Peschke offers two machines for this test.
