Home 5 Four Axis Fatigue Testing Machine


Four Axis Fatigue Testing Machine

Bogie Loading and Test Press

The machine is capable of loading the components in four axes, in Linear motion can be converted to conical torsional Loads.

Dampening force can be evaluated in the field orientation i.e. Vertical or Horizontal or at any angle between horizontal to vertical and can be locked at any position as per requirement.

For the precise control of frequency (rpm) and displacement ENKAY has introduced electronically controlled hydraulic based Servo controlled close loop system with maximum Damping force up to of 5000kg depending upon customer requirement.
