Getting a measure of the most common load scenarios
Machine frames, conveyor systems, workstations and other profile constructions have to withstand the most diverse loads, points out the mk technology group.
Therefore, it is essential to know if the selected aluminium profiles were chosen correctly for safe and stable construction or if the deflection exceeds the acceptable limits and another profile from the mk construction kit should be used.
“In addition to choosing the profile, it is only necessary to specify the profile length and the single or section load to calculate the deflection,” says the company. “Based on these parameters, the following three load cases are calculated immediately:
The tool displays the deflection for single and section load for each of these cases, states mk group. “For further planning, on this basis the user can determine if the construction is properly sized for the specific application. Thus, the profile selection from the extensive mk construction kit is significantly simplified.”
