Test laboratory for energy chains
More than three billion test cycles per year are carried out at a total of 180 testing stations.
How well do energy chains perform in oil? In order to answer this customer's question, igus® tested the performance of Series B15 e-chains® in its own lab in combination with five specified oils. Over a period of 30 days, the energy chains were continuously moved and sprayed daily with the fluids to be tested.
Type of chain: B15.038.075.0
Travels: 1000 mm
cycles tested: 759.287
The subsequent tensile tests on the e-chains® specifically developed for this customer showed that only a maximum weakening of 11% is expected in spite of the continuous saturation of these special oils.
