Tests often include functional performance of products after the initial build process, the test rig being the first pass of fluid through the unit, where 100% checks are carried out to ensure product suitability.
Test rigs can be used for product testing in relation to durability and fatigue testing, this will require a rigorous selection of products to drive the machine to ensure that the rig will stand up to the longevity of the test process. In addition, test rigs we have supplied in the past are used to perform predictive modelling techniques.
Hedley design engineers have the experience and knowledge to be able to provide you with a test rig that will function as you expect, we work closely to ensure that your needs and requirements are met. We can provide you with a complete PLC controlled unit, recording and data logging all parameters that you set, via HMI for easy downloading allowing records to be provided as often as required.
