FLASH 36
FLASH 36

One of our largest spring testers, the FLASH 36's framework is capable of testing parts with loads of up to 50,000 lb. This tester is designed around large parts and heavy loads with plate diameters up to 24" and parts up to 36" in length. The FLASH 36 has a complete interlocked enclosure and a removable top plate to accommodate a large thru-rod assembly (up to 12" Ø) for testing parts that tend to buckle under load. This optional thru-rod accessory kit is pneumatically powered and easy to use. In August, 2012, We completed a redesign and build of the FLASH 36 for a large transit authority that includes a Spring Auto-Loader mechanism for shuttling heavy parts (like 100 lb. railcar suspension springs) in and out of the tester. We also modified the loading door and thru-rod assembly to be pneumatically powered. In addition to these upgrades, we added a spring squareness tester attachment that fits onto the machine next to the Spring Auto-Loader so the operator can manually test each spring's straightness.
