Product category: Tension measuring equipment

Horizontal tensile testing of cables, wires, chains, etc.

Universal testing machine Inspekt H-L 600kN with horizontal test area

The universal testing machine inspekt H-L 600kN was developed as a horizontal material testing system for testing products with high strengths and measurement lengths, such as chains, cables, wires or finished products with extensive installation lengths. The horizontal universal testing machine is able to accommodate specimens with lengths of up to 6000mm with a test travel of 500mm.
The maximum force of 600kN is applied by means of an electromotor via a central loading spindle. The insertion and removal of the test specimens is simplified due to the test space being freely accessible from the front (C shaped). Motor-driven, height-adjustable support tables increase user comfort and automatic safety door interlocking increases the safety of the test personnel. The expansion of the samples up to breaking point can be determined on a contactless basis, by means of an integrated video expansion measurement device.
Control of the system and evaluation of the measurement results is executed by the universal material testing software LabMaster.

Product category: Hardness tester

Portal hardness testing device with ball caster table

Rockwell hardness testing at large and heavy elements

The testing portal is used for the hardness testing based on the Rockwell method HRC according to DIN EN ISO 6508 at large and heavy elements. The machine frame is built as a portal with a clear width of 1360mm and a clear height of 1000mm above the ball caster table, so that components up to a maximum width of about 1200mm and a maximum height of about 900mm can be crossed and tested. The minimal height of the specimen is 100mm.

The preparation of the testing point has to be carried out beforehand. The search unit is positioned manually at the desired point of measurement. After that the measurements can be executed with a hand lever.

The fixed lower frame of the construction is used as ball caster table for the specimens und carries the rails for the lengthwise displaceable portal. The machine itself consists of a solid portal that ranges in a guiding system. Making use of a manual bracing during the measurement the stability is enhanced. The adjustment of the longitudinal direction is carried out manually.

The vertically adjustable hardness probe is provided at the portal and affixed to a heavy-duty carrier. The delivery of the electrical supply occurs by an energy chain, which is placed in the area of a rail. Additional media are not necessary for the operation of the machine.

The size ratio without cut-off is about 2500mm x 2500mm.

About us

Company details

Since 1990 Hegewald & Peschke Meß- und Prüftechnik GmbH has been developing, producing and distributing high-quality machines, components and software solutions for material and component testing.

The product range includes universal testing machines, hardness testers, component and furniture test stands, micro testing systems, special testing solutions, and different length measuring devices for industry and research.

Hegewald & Peschke Meß- und Prüftechnik GmbH, located in Nossen (near Dresden), has several sales agencies all over Germany. We offer a quick and reliable customer service and customized solutions for test engineering modernizations.
Hegewald & Peschke Meß- und Prüftechnik GmbH exports about 35% of its products worldwide. Numerous agencies abroad guarantee a reliable support for our clients.
Hegewald & Peschke Meß- und Prüftechnik GmbH has been certified according to ISO 9001 and operates a DAkkS/DKD (German calibration service) calibration laboratory in accordance to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 for the mechanical quantities force, extension and hardness. 

Competency generates results.

Solutions for industry and research
The testing machines and components of Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH are developed and produced in standard versions or based on the individual needs of our customers.

Our objective is always to fulfill the requirements and needs of our customers and to develop and produce testing machinery on the basis of codes of best practice without any compromises. That involves the mechanical design as well as the user-oriented testing software, which should provide them added value in terms of clarity and flexibility.The broad range of products includes solutions for measuring the smallest test loads up to loads of 2500 kN for large testing machines. On this basis, the most diverse mechanical and dynamic parameters of materials and components can be measured.

Customized and automated testing solutions by Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH include, e.g. fully automated material testing centres based on industrial robots. In many industries it is mandatory to have consistent evidence of product and material quality. Therefore numerous tests have to be made within a very short time. Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH will meet the requirements with the help of automation solutions. These include, among other things, special machines with robot controlled sample feeding and automated recording of measured values.
Furthermore, Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH offers complex dynamic test stands based on pneumatic or electrical actuators for complex functionality tests and also the determination of the durability and lifte-time behavior of components and furniture.
If necessary, these static and dynamic loads can be measured in different temperature or climatic conditions.

Customer service
For Hegewald & Peschke Meß- und Prüftechnik GmbH the main focus is on the customers’ satisfaction. Thus, our company does not only place great emphasis onto its products, but also on a quick and reliable service. Our engineers and technicians do not only carry out professional installations and calibrations of the testing machines, but also special briefings, maintenance work and trainings. To ensure the best customer care, Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH operates technical offices all over Germany.

Highly qualified staff
The team of Hegewald & Peschke consists of experienced engineers from the fields of mechanical design, automation technology, and electronic and software development. The know-how of those experts forms the foundation for efficient and quick development of customized solutions. Volkmar Hegewald (born 1953), a graduate engineer (Dipl.-Ing.) of plastics technology, and Volker Peschke (born 1959), a graduate engineer (Dipl.-Ing.) of ferrous metallurgy and material testing, jointly founded and managed Hegewald & Peschke Meß- und Prüftechnik GmbH until end 2016.

Securing the future
Since 1st January 2017 the son of Mr. Volkmar Hegewald, Dr. Jan Hegewald, is appointed as managing director and also became main shareholder of Hegewald & Peschke Meß- und Prüftechnik GmbH. Now he manages together with the two founders, Volkmar Hegewald and Volker Peschke, the company and stands for a sustainable future of the family-owned business.

The strategic target remains the development, production and delivery of innovative, customer-oriented and qualitative testing machinery associated with excellent customer service.
