Rotating Bending Test Machine for Wheels

Task • Service

Tests to evaluate the fatigue strength of vehicle wheels, in particular the dynamic fatigue strength of wheel discs exposed to extreme lateral force::

  • Loading through rotating bending torque until failure becomes apparent through cracks and / or fractureh
  • Prerequisite for approval by TÜV and DEKRA material test centres
  • Rotating bending tests for geometrically similar components (e.g. flywheels) possible

Technical Data
