In order to expand their testing capabilities, FERSA-NKE purchases a bearing test rig EELPAX-200 by Elgeti Engineering GmbH. This testing machine is equipped with an enhanced measurement system which allows for the detection of the smallest spalling and thus provides the most precise test results. Additionally, the next generation control system provides many additional functions such as load cycles, easy switching between manual and automatic operation, integration of torque measurement, and improved data acquisition for easier post-processing.
Jesus Monforte, Sales Director of NKE says: “For FERSA Group, testing is a key to ensure product fitness to the application and support our advanced engineering projects. With this acquisition, we increase as well our in-house testing capacity demanded by our project pipeline. In this sense we count on our strong cooperation with Elgeti to develop test rigs according to our needs.”
Hagen Elgeti, Managing Director of Elgeti Engineering, adds: “Dynamic companies like Fersa Group drive us to continuously improve our technical solutions and therefore, we are very pleased that our latest concepts can help to support FERSA-NKE’s activities in research and quality control.”
