Example of a test setup with a Series AT rotary cylinder for testing metal specimen.
Dynamic ship clutch torsion test rig for durability and characterisation of elastomer ship couplings. Measurement of dynamic loss angle and dynamic stiffness up to 50 Hz loading frequency.
Nom. torque 64 kNm
Nom. angle +/- 50°
Half shaft durability test rig with four Series AT4 and AT6 rotary actuators. For saving laboratory space, the actuators are arranged on two levels.
Quasi-static torsional test rig for testing of various components. Electrically driven with a servo motor and a planetary gear.
Nom. torque +/-200 Nm
Nom. angle +/-360°
Distance between flanges 200 - 800 mm
The picture shows a torsional test on a car's glove box.
So called 4 square test rigs are made of two gear boxes, linked with the specimen shafts. One of the gear boxes has a rotating actuator integrated to generate the torque in the rotation shafts. The upper picture shows a test rig for a light truck propeller shaft where the middle unit moves vertically to simulate the movement of the rear axle.
