A Green Footprint for Your Testing Lab – Modernization of Testing Machines Reduces CO2 Emissions
The test frame of a 100 kN universal testing machine, for example, consists of approximately 300 kg steel and just under 100 kg aluminum, the production of which generates around 2.2 tons of CO2. These 2.2 tons of CO2 can be saved with a modernization, since the test frame is reused.
By modernizing your testing machine, it is once again sustainable and equipped for future developments.
In 2021, approximately 1,000 tons of CO2 were saved through testing machine modernizations.
Working together to save CO2
With thousands of manufacturer-independent modernizations, we have gained years of experience in the field of materials testing machine modernizations, allowing us to extend the service life of testing machines and testing systems from a wide variety of manufacturers.
The general modernization process includes updating the measurement and control electronics and testing software, and replacing the drive technology. The steel and aluminum load frame is reused and reconditioned or repainted.
See our Case Studies for information on how the Cube has been used to modernize testing machines.
