In cooperation with IMA, WPM Leipzig is worldwide the only supplier of testing rigs for this type of fuselage panels.

Testing Rig for Fuselage Panels V0

Application

The testing rig for fuselage panels V0 is designed for tests of aluminium fuselage panels. Various tensile and compression forces in take-off and landing can be simulated. Moreover, the air pressure in the air can be simulated by pressing air into the panel.

Features

The testing rig can exert a tensile force of 100 tonnes, generated by a cylinder at the bottom. At the sides, various tensioning cylinders are mounted.

Testing Rig for Fuselage Panels V1

Application

The testing rig for fuselage panels V1 serves to test plastic fuselage panels.

Features

The testing rig is a machine in horizontal position which can exert tensile forces and partly compression forces

Testing Rig for Fuselage Panels V2

Application

The testing rig V2 is used for testing of shear loading of CFK fuselage panels with internal pressure test.

Features

  • Nominal force: 3200 kN
  • Nominal stroke: 200 mm
  • Internal pressure: 1.5 bar
  • Including pressure box

Testing Rig for Fuselage Panels V3

Application

The hydraulic testing rig for fuselage panels V3 is a machine in horizontal position and serves for dynamic and static tests of bended fuselage panels. The main forces exerted on the specimen are compression and tensile forces. Furthermore, it is possible to generat the shear flow up to the point of break. The fuselage panel is screwed into the testing rig for the test.

Features

  • Nominal force: ± 3800 kN
  • Nominal stroke: 200 mm
  • Internal pressure: 1.5 bar

Testing Rig for Fuselage Panels V4

Application

The hydraulic testing rig for fuselage panels V3 is a machine in horizontal position and serves for dynamic and static tests of bended fuselage panels out of aluminium. The main forces exerted on the specimen are compression and tensile forces. Furthermore, it is possible to generate the shear flow up to the point of break.

Features

  • Nominal force: ± 5500 kN
  • Nominal torque: ± 11.2 MNm
  • Nominal stroke: 400 mm
  • Internal pressure: 1.5 bar
