Furniture test stand

Two furniture test stands delivered to the Tecnical Research Institute of Sweden.

BTE and Hegewald & Peschke Mess- und Prüftechnik GmbH have installed a double test bench for side-to-side and armrest tests as well as a double-flexure test bench for seat-backrest and side-to-side or armrest testing to RICE Technical Research Institute of Sweden.

While seat bench-backrest and armrest testing as a dual-flex change-over tester is primarily cost-effective and cost-effective for the customer and both tests can operate independently, such as stand-alone test stands, the double test bench has been designed for armrest or side-to-side testing. that also sofas and other upholstered furniture can be tested. For this purpose, the center column was shortened and the width increased, so that the two outer cylinders can be used for the armrests. In addition, here too two conventional chairs can be tested simultaneously and independently of each other.

The change between armrest testing and side-to-side testing is extremely simple: the thrust pieces are replaced with the tried-and-tested terminal connection, the cylinders are adjusted to the required position and limited in their mobility or completely locked and the appropriate test templates are set - afterwards the test can start.
The test bench for the seat backrest test allows testing according to BIFMA X5.1 and the usual German standards - in particular according to EN 1335. Furthermore, it can be tested to BS 5459.



INSPEKT 600KN

Exova Metech A/S expands calibration laboratory by calibration machine INSPEKT 600KN.

Exova Metech A/S expands calibration laboratory by calibration machine INSPEKT 600KN

BTE expands the High Force part of its business to include the Exova Metech group. Exova Metech offers their customers worldwide calibration and measuring technology services. Depending on customer requirements the well-equipped calibration laboratories of the enterprise group carry out calibrations according to ISO / IEC 17025 or corresponding to customised quality specifications.

In order to satisfy the growing inquiry for calibration services, the lab of the Exova Metech A/S with headquarter in Lem, Denmark, was expanded by a calibration machine Inspekt 600kN. The machine is equipped with 3 reference load cells for different load areas (600kN, 100kN, 20kN). This ensures the achievement of the necessary accuracy in any case. A separate control and measuring circuit guarantees high precision, measuring accuracy and traceability.

The calibration machine is based on the construction of the universal testing machine series Inspekt. For the application of these universal testing machines as calibration machines the Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH has developed and delivered together with BTE the "calibration module" in its in-house material testing software LabMaster. The functional extent can be used for the inspection of the load measuring equipment of the machine used with LabMaster as well as for the examination of external load measuring instruments.

In the present case the machine is used as a calibration machine and the internal load cell is only used for the regulation of the machine. The real reference is, in any case, an external load cell with accompanying measuring amplifier.

The measuring amplifier is also integrated into LabMaster, so that the calibration module allows a holistic test procedure as well as the representation and logging of all measuring parameters.

BTE installs temperature cycling unit at Uponor in Virsbo, Sweden.

BTE has recently installed a temperature cycling unit at Uponor in Virsbo, Sweden. The temperature cycling test for pipe systems places the test systems under extremely tough conditions and requires quality, high performance components in order to ensure long-lasting reliability. IPT benefits from decades of experience in this particular field and has consistently further developed this technology to produce a complete series of products capable of meeting the most varied of requirements. Systems designed for different capacities are available depending on the number, diameter and physical parameters of the pipe systems to be tested.

In order to also satisfy future test requirements, IPT has invested in further development of the technology for temperature cycling testing. With significantly increased flow rates, the new generation of test systems can now also be used to subject large pipes and fittings to temperature cycling tests, in line with the applicable standards.The proven IPT technology for temperature cycling tests is available for pipes with an outside diameter of up to 160 mm.

The new IPT models, 1769 and 1770, comply with a wide range of standards. The required cooling can be carried out using cooling units or the customer's in-house cooling system.
Tester supply unit model 1769 (with pressure tank):
This tester is suitable for high test temperatures up to 114 °C (in line with BS 7291) and is fitted with pressure tanks. A compressor unit supplying compressed air is required for operation. The testers are subject to regulations regarding pressure vessels. The maximum test pressure is 16 bar and the maximum total cross-section for the samples is 8000 mm².
Tester supply unit model 1770 (without pressure tank):
This tester is suitable for test temperatures up to 95 °C and is fitted with unpressurised tanks. The testers are not subject to regulations regarding pressure vessels. The max. test pressure is 16 bar and the maximum total cross-section (depending on the flow rate inside the samples) is 8000 mm².
