Durability testing is the duration of time a product, part, material, or system can meet its performance requirements. e.g. lifetime span. Durability testing is generally considered a subset of reliability testing.
enProducts recently designed and developed a Door Durability Tester for testing a newly manufactured 48″x 24″ size icebox door hinge to test its reliability, durability, and functionality in real situations. This unit is designed to accommodate two-sized doors with a box, with universal easy-to-operate clamps.
A totally PLC controlled system counts each operation time, and sequence and stop according to the predetermined cycle values. The machine is also provided with an HMI interface for changing the set values, retrieving test values, and displaying the counts of each test. An IP 54 electronic control box with industrial harnessing and connectorization is adopted for the control unit. Best in class PLC Module from SIEMENS CPU is the core controller. Strict safety protocol is followed for eliminating electric leakage.
The machine has a Siemens HMI with an easy access push-button control panel which is easy to use and monitor the testing cycle counts. With test cycle history. The whole control has retentive memory hence the resume cycle even after power shutdown.
We specify, design, and buy assets based on Life Cycle Cost (LCC) instead of the lowest cost to buy. This means that decisions on what to buy are based on costs to buy and costs to own an asset over its economical life, instead of buying assets solely on the purchase price. A world-class organization has maintenance professionals involved very early in a project. These professionals know how to perform reliability and maintainability analyses of systems and components.
As a result, complete bills of materials, training manuals, and detailed drawings are delivered according to your documented maintenance standards. Which ensures its reliability from a design by choosing the best in class components from leading brands of automation.
