Variable superstructures

The "HYDRA" hydraulic test facility is especially suited for variable test superstructures. The modular systems ensure fast and cost-effective test set-up. The test facility has a multi-channel controller system. Hydraulic cylinders of different sizes as well as diverse mounting brackets and load frames are available for custom test set-ups. Furthermore, tests can be made with electromotive, electrodynamic and pneumatic drives.

Technical data:

  • Performance data: forces up to 1,200 kN, torques up to 4 kNm
  • Main clamping area: 6 x 3 m, secondary clamping area: 3 x 2 m, t-slots in 250 mm grid
  • Digital controller with multiple control PCs, diverse controller channels and analogue and digital IOs
  • Hydraulic supply: multiple connection units with more than 800 l/min at 280 bar
  • Climate and temperature conditions can be regulated from -75 °C to +180 °C via mobile recirculating air units
