Model T-120

A computerized test machine for setting, checking and sorting springs for one, two or three loads, with testing rates up to thirty springs per minute.

Springs are loaded automatically or by hand into a carrier containing six slots which accommodates a range of diameters from 0.375" to 2.125". The carrier is indexed by a stepper motor to position each spring under an air cylinder set and load checking ram. After positioning a spring, the carrier is backed up according to data from the computer so that nothing is touching the spring during testing.

The standard machine has four active stations:

  • Load spring
  • Set spring
  • Test load
  • Sort spring

Springs can be sorted into three or five different categories. The standard unit has room for two additional stations.

  • Load cell accuracy to 0.05% of full scale of load cell rating
  • Load ram accuracy to +/- 0.0003"
  • Dynamic timing reduces outside noise factors
  • SPC data and R&R studies
  • Computerized program provides fast set-up and storage of six jobs
  • Menu driven software easy for operator to learn and use
  • Test sequence of stations controlled by computer program customized for each job
  • Load calibration and set-up by computer
  • Load cell interchangeable from 10# to 250#
  • Accepts Moyer Automatic Loading Systems
