Automatic test equipment for clutch mechanisms
- HYSTERESIS 1: measurement of the hysteresis on bearing (bearing load)
- HYSTERESIS 2: measurement of the hysteresis on plate
- PL: measurement of the plate lift
Measurement can be carried out in either TEST or PRODUCT CERTIFICATION mode. In the first mode, the equipment measures some points defined by the user at the speed of 3 mm/s, whereas in the second mode the equipment runs the test sequence at the speed of 0,5 mm/sec, measures all points and draws the relevant curve in a x-y chart.
The equipment consists of a test bench equipped with a powered rotary table with 3 seats (one for each product type) with relevant locking system for the mounting of the testing pieces; besides the piece motion and actuating devices, the bench also contains the necessary control and measurement electronics.
The equipment is governed by a control cabinet comprising an industrial PC, the necessary management and acquisition software and a laser printer for the output of test reports and diagrams.
