5000kN multi-purpose testing system for railway components
Customer: RAILWAY TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM TESTING CENTER
Universal testing system for characterization of railway components (rails and sleepers), designed in cooperation with the Railway Transportation Testing Center (RTTC), integrated in the Thailand Institute of Scientific and Technological Research (TISTR), Ministry of Science and Technology (Gov Thailand).
End user: Railway Transportation Testing Center (RTTC), Ministry of Science and Technology (Gov. Thailand)
Capacity: 5000 kN static and 25 kN dynamic
Test possibilities: Tensile, compression and bending on rails, bending of sleepers, testing of isolated rail joints, multipurpose dynamic tests. The system allows to perform tests according to the main European and American standards and manuals related to these components, such as EN 13230-2, EN 13230-3, EN 13230-4, EN 14587-1, EN 14587-2, EN 14730-2, AREMA chapter 4, as well as other standards belonging to entities such as GOST, UIC, AS, etc.
Technological advantages IBMT4-5000
The system is composed of a high stiffness test frame, with a capacity to perform tests up to 5000kN (500T) in static loads and a dynamic actuator to perform dynamic and long term fatigue tests (HCF) at high frequency.
