Toni Technik has delivered in June 2020 a compression test machine for metal samples with a max load of 2000 kN to Italy within a project of Danieli for ABS Acciairie Bertoli Safau. In order to observe special metal characteristics within the production process there were defined requirements as using very small samples to be tested under different temperature and speed.

Based on long-year experience also beside our classical field of building materials and in close cooperation with our representative ZwickRoell Roell Italy we have developed, produced and tested this customer designed machine in our plant in Berlin.

The challenge was to realize compression tests on metal samples with diam. between 5.5 and 25 mm,  a height of 1.5x d up to a temperature of 900 C and a speed between 7 and 375 mm/min

This could be realized by using a hydraulic operated test frame together with special Compression device designed according to ASTM E 9 including compression plates made of Tungsten Carbide which can resist the high temperature and forces on a very small surface.

Due to the fact of a deformation controlled test with a requested  test speed as a.m. mentioned, it contains a special Power unit with a pump capacity of 30l/ min and a tank with a capacity of 120 l.

Digital control ToniTrol II combined with latest software version     testXpert III allows to run the machine from the PC and to grant efficient data storage and evaluation of the test results.

This machine was part of a project which included in addition two tensile Stress Testing Machines from ZwickRoell Roell in Ulm.

Danieli is an Italian company that is one of the world’s leading suppliers of plant construction for the metallurgical industry with more than 9.000 employees world-wide. The final customer ABS belongs to the Danieli Group and has a long-term experience in steelmaking. It was founded in 1988 as a merger of Officine Bertoli (est,1813 ) and Safau (est.1934).
