EL-13 Bennewart flexing machine


This device measures the resistance to repeated flexing of soles.

Before testing the sample on the flexometer Bennewart, it is necessary to determine the stiffness of complex footwear to assess if it is about to test flexomètre Bennewart.
EN ISO 20344: 8.4.1 - Personal protective equipment - Test methods for footwear - Determination of resistance to bending of the outsole - strength test EN ISO 20344: 8.4.2 - Personal protective equipment - test methods for footwear - Determination of flexural strength of the outsole - bending test
the flexometer Bennewart also allows to assess the damage to cracking grooved surfaces. This test is applied to the outside of the shoe soles.
The equipment is supplied with 3 workstations each having a fixed jaw and a movable jaw. The latter have vertically for ease of manipulation by the operator.
he sample is oriented so that one side is bent at 90 ° with a radius of 15 mm and subjected to 140 bending / minute.

he design of the bending mechanism ensures, under the conditions of bending, that the plan created by the jaws on the perimeter of the bending roller will not interfere along its length. Sample Stretching will then function as the roll diameter or thickness of the sample.

The machine is equipped with a switch that allows the operator to stop the sample in two different positions: in the tensioned position to attach the sample to the jaws such that the surface is planar in maximum fold position for measuring the crack. All accessible moving parts are protected not a closed system ensuring complete machine compliance with European safety regulations.
