walter+bai 1000kN Servo-hydraulic test system
This walter+bai 1000 kN system was design and supplied to perform Proof Loading tests on a range of Nuts and Bolts used within the construction industry.
Due to the loads involved and the nature of the test, the load frame was designed to provide a very high stiffness characteristic. Thus, if a Nut of Bolts failed the system would absorb the energy. A long stroke actuator was incorporated to make changes between different bolt lengths easy and quick. An reinforced and interlocked safety enclosure is fitted.
As this system is included within a small laboratory, the control system, the computer and the hydraulic power supply are all hosed within a 19” racking.
