mk were asked to design a test rig for baby strollers that would satisfy the test criteria of the TUV safety regulations. This was achieved by simulating different ground conditions with standardised obstacles for testing baby strollers. The adjustable speed of the conveyor belt should be up to 10 km/h (170 m/min), which corresponds to a moderate jogging speed. The total load is a maximum of 150 kg.
Features of this test rig include the following:
- mk’s GUF-P 2004 conveyor was equipped with a timing belt drive and balanced rollers.
- A wire hook connection ensures easy belt change. Standardised obstacles were screwed onto the belt.
- To damp strong vibrations (that occur through cleats) it was necessary to support conveyor belt on metal vibration buffers.
- A switch-off safeguard was implemented via magnetic pull switches.
This TUV compliant Baby stroller test fixture including guarding was produced using predominantly systems or modules within the mk profile and conveyor ranges.
