Ensuring baby strollers are up to the job

Ensuring baby strollers are up to the job MK Profile Systems was recently asked to design a test rig for baby strollers that would satisfy the test criteria of the demanding 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 10km/h (170m/min), which corresponds to a moderate jogging speed. The total load is a maximum of 150 kg.

To meet the needs of the application, 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 the conveyor belt on metal vibration buffers. A switch-off safeguard was implemented via magnetic pull switches.

MK Profile reports that the TUV compliant Baby stroller test fixture including guarding was produced using predominantly systems or modules within the company's profile and conveyor ranges.
