Hinge fatigue testing machine uses Windows screens for test program settings. The machine is easy to operate and all test data can be stored (For example: test conditions, torque-angle curves, life curves, inspection reports, etc.) Hinge fatigue testing is a process used to assess the strength and durability of a hinge over time by measuring its fatigue levels. It involves subjecting the hinge to different cycles, loads, and combinations of loads in order to measure how much strain the hinge can handle before failure or stress-induced damage occurs. This provides valuable insight into the performance characteristics of any given hinge design.
Hinges are an essential component in many products, including doors, cabinets, and automobiles. To ensure the durability and reliability of hinges, they must undergo fatigue testing. The hinge fatigue testing machine is a specialized testing equipment designed to test the durability and performance of hinges used in various industries. The machine is used to simulate the repetitive opening and closing of a hinge, which is critical in determining its lifespan and reliability.

|The test data is stored on the tester’s computer (each data can be stored, unlimited times).|
|The test conditions are all set by the computer screen (including opening angle, speed, times, pause time…etc.)|
|The title of the inspection report can be modified at any time (Chinese and English). The inspection report can be transferred to Excel| and edited in real time.|
|Shaft torsion endurance Life testing machine can record each torque-angle curve.|
|When the machine is running, it can display the torque-angle curve and the torque decay curve at the same time.|
|The test position of Hinge on Notebook can be adjusted by itself. During testing, the engineer can choose to apply force on one side or two sides.|
Once the tests are finished and you’ve gathered all your results, it’s important to interpret what you learned. While fatigue testing produces an enormous amount of data, some programmable touch screen controllers are available to help make sense of the results. The programmable controllers makes it easier to keep track of important trends that might be occurring in your sample, such as increasing cycle numbers or constant travel torque. If necessary, this data can also be used to adjust the test configuration for further experiments – for example by incrementing or decrementing sample clamp force.
