Your special requirements deserve special solutions. For this purpose FDM has developed its CUSTOM division. Dedicated volumes, removable doors or exceptional specimens testing are only few examples.
We analyzed and developed things like machines for special mechanical tyres testing, climatic chambers filled with path tracks for mice testing and environmental chambers with special filters or lights.
Our experience and technical innovation skills encounter the quality of ever. This will be with your special requirements and your future FDM CUSTOM chamber.
FDM products offer the best environment simulation. We know how difficult could be keep an high quality and reliability level in your laboratory. To help you bring home your goals we think excellent product isn’t enough. Service is fundamental. You have the freedom to choose between different service package, to take care of your devices and keep your research or business safe.
Climatic hydraulic press; Climatic module paired with any press
If you have a hydraulic press, and you need to do test at controlled temperatures and humidity, FDM has already the solution for you. We’ve put ourselves to the test once again, designing a unique machine and that allows the coupling with your current press.
The climatic chamber can be coupled and de-coupled to the press in a simple and fast way . Thanks to the installation of the chamber on rails. In this way, it will be enough to pull out the chamber’s axes and slide backwards the climatic structure. The project was born with the necessity of a customer, who was already in possession of a hydraulic press and wondered us if it was possible to create a climate coupled with it. So we managed to meet the customer’s economic / qualitative needs by creating a custom machine for unique and efficient testing.
Main features of climatic hydraulic press are:
Temperature range: -30/+80°C
Temperature changes in time: ±0.1…0.5°C
Max Cooling / Heating Speed: +5/-5 °C/min
Other features of climatic hydraulic press:
Temperature and humidity probe are located close the Test sample
RS485 interface port
External elettronic controller with programmer
Controlled Humidity to avoid condensation
External glass door with inner lighting to the climatic
Internal and external structure completely in stainless steel AISI 304
Cable holes both wall sides.
The climatic hydraulic press, can work both with manual and automatic mode through the software already installed on the press with RS485 interface and external electronic controller.
During F1 races drivers sumbit cars to curve angles at a crazy speed. In these situations tyres need to grip to asphalt in the most efficient way possible. This efficiency decreases by the consumption of the tyres during the race. To calculate this wear andprevent it, Bridgestone needed a solid automation machine to perform stress test on its F1 tyres.
Tire stress test chamber: requirements
FDM answered by engineering and developing a custom machine with a motion chamber equipped with robotic arms grabbing the tyre samples. Below the other functions: – Cyclical pressure/stretching of different multi-tyre samples – Possibility to set Humidity/Temperature inside the motion chamber – Count of the cycles and calculation of the strain registered on every cycle – Alarm at the tyre break – Registration of data during all the stress tests and production of a complete log
Research institutes and bio labs usually need special chambers to test plants or animals growth. But not always their needs encounter the right solution from standard products. A climatic chamber reseller from Germany was asked by a big science laboratory for a special solution: a hugebclimatic chamber for mice safe growth. We care a lot research as we think it’s the future. So FDM answered to this request.
Climate chamber for keeping mice: solution
FDM proposed a special automatic controlled climatic chamber. This solution was equipped with cages for mice containment, UV lights and controlled environment as well as: – Night and day cycles simulation – Programmed Temperature and Humidity – Removable doors to facilitate researchers operations – Settable alarms to help controlling medicines effects over time – Registration of data during all the cycles and production of a complete log
