You've read about it. Come and see it! Larson Systems’ new FLASH 36 spring tester will be finished and we're hosting an open house to show it off and celebrate its completion! Join us for a demo and bring your questions, we'll supply answers and food.
We designed this FLASH 36 for a large transit authority and as a result, it has a number of features to facilitate testing large, heavy springs - like those used for passenger rail car suspension.
Large Part Capacity
Parts up to 18 inches in diameter and 36 inches in length can be tested with a 10,000 lb. load cell on a framework that is capable of testing with up to 35,000 lb. of force.
The perfect work holding solution for long springs that tend to buckle during testing and an effective safety precaution, preventing springs that break or buckle during testing from bursting out of the testing area and striking and injuring the operator.
With the ability to shuttle springs that weigh up to 500 lb. into the FLASH 36 for testing, the Spring Auto-Loader takes the back injuries out of lifting heavy springs into the tester. Just place the springs on the loader with a jib crane or lift truck and let the tester do the rest of the work for you!
The spring auto-loader, polycarbonate door and thru-rod assembly all operate at the push of a button.
Additional Equipment on Hand at the Open House
In addition to the FLASH 36, we will also have other spring testing equipment on hand for you to check out, including: FLASH 24, Tiger Gage, STAR 25, ATST (Automatic Torsion Spring Tester), Super Presetter, Solid Height Checker, STWCS (Super Torque Wrench Calibration System), DHT (Digital Hand Tester) 110 lb. and Larson Systems' first spring tester!
