Spring Testers

Spring Testing is a measure of the compression or tension force exerted by a spring at a specific deflection, length, spring torsion, or the deflection or length of a spring at a specific force.

MultiTest-i spring testers

Our top-of-the-range MultiTest-i spring testers provide optimum testing performance and evaluation options, enabling you to get the most from your test measurements.

  • Controlled via advanced software
  • Create sophisticated test programs
  • Extensive suite of calculations e.g. spring rate and free height
  • View data graphically in real time
  • Perform in-depth evaluation of results
  • Ideal for Quality Control Laboratories
  • Capacities from 1kN to 50kN


Touch Screen Spring Testers

MultiTest-xt test stands

Operated via an easy-to-use touch screen, our MultiTest-xt test stands enable fast and efficient routine testing on the production floor with one complete solution.
  • User-friendly touch screen interface
  • Easy-to-use, requires minimal set-up time & training
  • Flexible - choice of 3 program modes
  • Create and store multiple test programs
  • 5 'Favourite' buttons for fast access to frequently used tests
  • Measures force and displacement
  • Colour-coded Pass/Fail indication
  • Ideal for routine use in production areas
  • Self-contained system - no PC required
  • Capacities from 1kN to 50kN

Both the MultiTest-i and MultiTest-xt spring testers provide cycling, pass-fail, loadcell deflection compensation and operator lock-out from programming areas.


Motorised and Manual Spring Testers

MultiTest-d test stands

Our entry-level MultiTest-d test stands are a cost-effective solution for straightforward spring tests.
  • Simple to operate
  • Combines with Mecmesin's digital gauges; AFG & BFG
  • Rugged design suitable for factory floor
  • Comines with data acquisition software for additional test evaluation options
  • Capacities from 0.5kN to 2.5kN

For basic spring testing applications a Mecmesin manual test stand, such as an MDD used with either a digital force gauge and digital height scale offers an affordable solution.

Grips and Fixtures

Mecmesin grips and fixtures are integral components of our test systems. We offer a wide range of fixtures for spring testing applications including self-levelling compression plates, spring supports and safety guards. For specialised requirements such as spring torsion we also offer a customized fixture design service to match your specification.

As well as our standard spring testers we have designed testers specifically for testing spring torsion.

 


 

 

Spring Testing

Spring Testing is a measure of the compression or tension force exerted by a spring at a specific deflection or length, or the deflection or length of a spring at a specific force.

Springs can be found virtually everywhere and the reliability of a multitude of products depends critically upon springs, including:

  • Aircraft systems
  • Automobiles
  • Buildings
  • Medical devices
  • Musical instruments
  • Racing cars
  • Satellites
  • Scientific and engineering instruments
  • Switches
  • Tools
  • Trains


Wherever there are springs and spring-like components, virtually all have to be tested.

Springs exert a specific force at a specific length, If springs do not perform correctly the results can be anything from quality-critical to safety critical. Once they have been excercised or 'scragged', springs are often tested many times in a cyclic test procedure and some spring life tests can last for thousands of cycles.


Benefits of Spring Testing


These include:

  • Ensuring the integrity and safety of products
  • Ensuring the proper functioning of springs and spring activated products
  • Establishing and maintaining consistency in manufacture
  • Compliance with industry standards


Standards

Every spring has its engineering drawing specifying a force at length(s), or a length at force(s), and usually a spring rate. The only way to ensure correct performance is to test for this on appropriate equipment. Over the years a number of national and international spring test standards have been developed, such as:

  • ASTM A 125-96 Standard Specification for Steel Springs, Helical, Heat-Treated
  • BS 1726-1:2002 Cylindrical Helical Springs Made From Round Wire and Bar. Guide to Methods of Specifying, Tolerances and Testing. Compression Springs
  • BS 1726-2:2002 Cylindrical Helical Springs Made From Round Wire and Bar. Guide to Methods of Specifying, Tolerances and Testing. Extension Springs
  • BS 1726-3:2002 Cylindrical Helical Springs Made From Round Wire and Bar. Guide to Methods of Specifying, Tolerances and Testing. Torsion Springs
  • DIN 2192 Flat Springs - Requirements and Testing
  • JIS B 2704 Helical Compression and Extension Springs - Requirements for Design, Performance Test Method
