The torque is measured on the gear output side through a calibrated measuring shaft via DMS technology while the twisting angle is calculated on the drive side through a pulse encoder or a position sensor which is installed directly on the testing sample. Apart from recording mechanical coupling figures, the testing of component strength and service life is also performed on the new test bench. In addition positivelocking and frictionally engaged overload systems will be tested. KTR’s test bench for mechanical couplings at the headquarters in Rheine currently comprises 24 rotating and non-rotating test benches operated hydraulically, servo-hydraulically or electrically. The test benches cover a test range from 0.2 Nm to 500,000 Nm and allow for practical testing conditions with dynamic or static load of the testing sample. www.ktr.com MDA Technologies 2/2016
