Integration for safety

Since we have other things to do than watching the rig, we wanted to design the system to be independent on our presence. If something goes wrong it should just fix it. I got help from Joakim Lindblom (JL Integration) who integrated the control system of the machine with the temperature- and gas control. If something of following happens, both induction system and gas flows are shutdown:

  • cooling of induction system or grips stops
  • position or load limits are reached by the machine
  • test specimen fractures or test procedure is finished
  • thermo couple breaks
  • power failure
  • emergency button is pushed
