  • Mechanical Mounting of striking mechanisms (MB700 to HB7000)
  • Conversion of the non-reflectible impact energy
  • Decoupling of the building based on vibration
  • Hydraulic Supply of the specimen
  • Sound Insulation
  • Acquisition and Storage of the measuring data

  • Construction of the Control Cabinet
  • Software Concept and Development
  • Installation and Assembly

The time for planning and construction of this complex special test rig was 10 months from purchase order in September 2006 to the ceremonial commissioning in July 2007.
