Railcar Spring Testing
Seoul Metropolitan Railway Transit Corporation required a system for testing a variety of springs in their electric railcars. The springs range in size from 3mm to 100mm in diameter.
To meet the specification, Mecmesin's distributor A&D Korea supplied a test system consisting of a MultiTest 10-i twin column test frame, driven by Emperor software, two intelligent loadcells and a selection of compression plates suitable for testing a wide variety of springs.
This system is used to apply a compressive force to the springs with a pass/fail criteria of equal to or greater than 300N. The customer chose Mecmesin MultiTest 10-i because the software is easy-to-use and the test system is price competitive.
"We purchased the MultiTest 10-i to test the 80% of the springs we have in our railcars. The system is very easy-to-use and the program is convenient to test. Also the support of A&D Korea was very positive."
