Test field for the final inspection of hydraulic products
Ratio-Drive® test machine

Hänchen offers hydraulic test stands that are tailor-made to customer specifications. One of Hänchen's projects is a new, self-developed and produced test field. It is intended to automate the final inspection of hydraulic cylinders, pressure intensifiers and other hydraulic products, and to ensure process reliability.

Test stand for seals and rod surfaces
Ratio-Drive® test machine

Hänchen not only tests its own sealing systems, guiding systems and rod surfaces, meanwhile we design and produce servo hydraulic test stands for the research and industrial sectors. The test stands are realised electrically or hydraulically depending on the requirements.

Large-size bearing test stand for wind energy installations
Test hydraulic actuator

Servo hydraulic actuators for test systems by Hänchen drive one of the largest bearing test stands worldwide. Around 40 GW of wind energy capacity installed annually worldwide. Increasingly larger systems are used for this: 5 MW are standard today in the offshore sector, and the 6 MW limit has already been reached.

Servohydraulic lifecycle tests are also the current industry standard for automobile components that are used far beyond safety-related structural elements. The challenge for such testing facilities lies in bringing together widely varying technologies at the highest level.

Material test for extended time tests of aircrafts

Turbulence can cause the wing tips of the A 340-600 to move over four metres. The aeroplane is moved by 94 Hänchen hydraulic cylinders which form the core mechanical components of a time accelerator test, which simulates over a period of 18 months the sequences of movements of the entire life-span of an aeroplane lasting 25 - 30 years.
