Seoul Metropolitan Railway Transit Corporation is using a MultiTest 10-i twin-column test frame system for quality testing a variety of springs in its electric railcars. The springs range from 3mm to 100mm in diameter. To meet their spring testing specification Mecmesin’s distributor A & D Korea supplied Seoul Metropolitan Railway Transit Corporation with a computer-controlled test system consisting of a MultiTest 10-i twin-column test frame driven by Emperor™ software, two intelligent loadcells and a selection of compression plates suitable for testing a wide variety of springs. This test system is used to apply a compressive force to the springs with a pass/fail criterion of equal to or greater than 300N.

“We purchased the MultiTest 10-i to test 80% of the springs, which we have in our railcars. The system is very easy to use and the program is convenient to test. Also the support of A&D Korea was very positive”, said SC Yoon, Seoul Metropolitan Railway Transit Corporation.
