Increase in process reliability - Establishment of a tensile test rig

In the implementation of its customer-specific drive solutions, KML relies on integrated designs with the greatest possible reduction of interfaces. As a result, bonded joints within the assemblies are becoming increasingly essential. The necessary testing processes are now carried out in-house at KML. In this way, KML can continue to meet the highest internal and external quality standards, as well as react even more flexibly and quickly to customer requirements. All this is realized with the newly acquired tensile testing machine from ZwickRoell GmbH & Co. KG.

The following objectives are being pursued with it:

  • Integration of further testing processes
  • Ensuring consistently high quality
  • Perfection of the bonding and welding processes
  • Systematic optimization of bonding/material and component properties

KML specifically tests the bond strength of joints and the resulting breaking load. Thanks to the high force and displacement resolution of the “Z020 AllroundLine”, defined parameters can be determined or checked precisely, repeatably and traceably. The testing software used makes a significant contribution to this.

At constant “room temperature”, not only compression and tensile, but also flexure and cyclic tests can be performed on our adhesive joints and assemblies. This further enhances our flexibility and future-proofing.

We will be pleased to support you in the course of your material testing or accompany you with our know-how in your development projects.
