VSE200 - Pre-damage & compression test
With the VSE200 test machine various pre-damage and compression tests can be done during the development phase of a new wheel design.
For various radial fatigue tests of aluminum wheels, a defined pre-damage is requested. The VSE200 can apply this kind of load scenarios according different regulations prior to the fatigue test.
Several car manufactures are requesting compression tests according to their own company standard. The individual tests are quite different in the test setup and test procedure. Alpine Metal Tech delivers with the VSE200 pre-programmed test routines including necessary test hardware for the different car manufacturer specifications.
In the upcoming extension of the § 30 StVZO guideline for testing of plastic/carbon wheels, new requirements for test procedures and test machines are defined. With the VSE200 and its carbon option, the requested pre-damage and the necessary stiffness measurement can be done. The additional equipment (e.g. mounting adaptor,…) and the measurement software will be included in the package.
- Universal wheel pre-damage and compression test machine
- Loads up to 90 kN can be applied
- Possibility for extension to stiffness measurement according new regulation for plastic/carbon wheels
