Some possible improvements in wire ropes fatigue testing machines
RoundTable – ENDURANCE RESEARCH OF WIRE ROPE AND ITS PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS – Glasgow 1985
The results of the researches carried on at the Department of Mechanics of Politecnico of Turin to improve the existing REFMA fatigue testing machine are set forth. Research areas include inertia balancing springs and electronic controls of the electro-hydraulic power and control units. Of course the proposed improvements are not intended to make present REFMA or other machines obsolete but, on the contrary, to have them performing the tasks they were designed for in an even better way.
