Experimental Stress Analysis on Crane Booms

New application example

In our new application example you will learn how mechanical stress is measured during the development of construction machinery.

Construction machinery must be subjected to intensive tests in order to make statements about load-bearing capacities and life cycle. In this example, experimental stress analysis is performed on six crane booms for telescopic cranes in order to record the stress curves under load and verify simulations by the development department.

With EtherCAT® STG MiniModules such test cycles can be performed easily and precisely.
