Damper test device

We know that the cost of maintenance for trains and dampers is of prime concern for customers. And that’s why we’ve designed and produced a compact damper test machine that will help you test your dampers quickly and easily.

The machine has a straightforward, easy-to-use design that's been developed in partnership with our customers. The ingenious clamping device means the operator can clamp and release the damper quickly, which keeps testing time to a minimum. You can use this multi-purpose device to test any type of damper vertically or laterally, and its user friendly interface makes any adjustment quick and easy.

The machine is delivered with a pre-set nominal velocity (typical 0.1 m/s). Damping forces are measured by a load sensor and shown on an analogue display. The peak force is then measured against the customer’s specified requirements to determine if damping forces are within the specified tolerances or if the damper is due for overhaul.
