The Easydur Leaf Spring Testing Machine (ARCO) is the best solution for doing bending test and compression test on leaf springs. This state-of-the-art leaf spring test machine is mainly designed for automotive and railway applications.
Easydur is able to design and build an ergonomic solution to suit every application requirement, depending on the type of leaf spring suspension, and in particular depending on the compression forces involved.
The load cell of the Easydur Leaf Spring Testing Machine is placed on the central plate which moves along the vertical axis, that’s why you can use the same machine for several products including coil springs, leaf springs and general spring components.
To ensure stable locking, the two ends of the leaf spring are supported with special locking pins which are positioned on a movable carriage. Also, to measure the extension of the leaf spring as a result of the applied compression force, some optional sensors are added.
Easydur Arco Spring Tester can perform compression test on both helical springs and leaf springs.
Electronics & Control
Easydur Arco Spring Tester has totally abandoned hydraulic technology even for high loads using a servo-electric system. The Easydur Leaf Spring Testing Machine is equipped with an absolute encoder, a ball screw, and a brushless motor.
Easydur Arco Spring Tester benefits from a special feature: It has a control system according to several proprietary cards (for cell readers + axis control) with CAN-bus connection, for displacements to force or position, with a feedback speed of 1000 Hz. Therefore, the reading of the loading cell occurs 1000 times per seconds, having a min resolution of 100,000 divisions (you can increase it, if you slow down the cell reading).
Arco leaf spring test machine is a numerically controlled solution that can operate in manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic mode. Thanks to the sturdy and large industrial touch screen display, every single operation can be carried out quickly and intuitively with Easydur Arco Spring Tester. Also, you can save up all the data on a large integrated hard disk.
The Leaf Spring Test is Fully Customizable
The Easydur R&D team has developed the EASYQS proprietary software (running on Windows 10 platform) using which the operator is able to create fully customizable test recipes, in accordance with every possible technical requirement with regard to characterization and spring testing (for example you can set the test to fulfill the UIC 821 : 2003 standard – technical specification for the supply of vehicles parallel leaf springs).
In other word, using Arco leaf spring test machine is possible to:
- Go to one or more forces and read the equivalent positions
- Go to one or more positions and read the equivalent forces
- Keep a given position or load for a settable time period
- Perform sinusoidal profile stress cycles, entering the number of test cycles
- Perform mathematical calculations in real-time
- Read while passing through
