We are proud of our sophisticated lab at MPC. The various tests we have in-house enable us to guarantee our clients the highest quality. Before any product is sent to a client it is thoroughly tested to see if it meets our quality standards. Our clients can also take advantage of our lab space. For instance, you can get your product tested in combination with MPC® clamps, to see how well they work together. Some of the tests we have are highlighted below.
With our Atlas Copco Torque tester we are able to test the free torque and breaking torque of our clamps. The tightening moment is displayed in Nm.
Tensile strength testing
We test the tensile strength of our clamps using the Testometric M350-10CT. The unit of measurement is N/mm2.
To test the hardness of our products we use the Proceq equostat 3. The results are showed in various units such as Vickers and Rockwell C.
Corrosion resistance testing
With the Liebisch Constasal we test the corrosion resistance of our products. This is a neutral salt spray test according to ISO9227 norms.
8-sector radial force testing
To test the radial distribution of the clamping force we use the 8-sector radial force test. This shows the radial force distribution on the application of the clamp.
Rent our lab space
Are you wondering how our clamps would perform when combined with your products? You can rent our lab space to test it! Simply contact us for more information about renting our lab or for detailed information about the tests.
