Cable duct strength testing
Customised engineering example
Our customer manufactures tubes and ducts for routing of cables and optical fibres. Installation of these uses blowing, pushing and pulling techniques.
To test the plastic ducting strength needed a custom compression fixture to be adapted to their existing force tester.
Mecmesin engineered a compression block to fit the inner profile of the duct and to the required length.
This is just one of many examples, where making use of Mecmesin's engineering capability to create a fixture with a specific profile, can save you time. It avoids having to trawl catalogues of engineering fixtures for an approximate fit, that may in the end yield inconsistent test results.
