    A.M. Erichsen set up his firstsmall factory in Teltow near Ber-lin. Research and experimentsled to many further inventions.

    the German State Chemico-Technical Institute successfullyapplied the ERICHSEN deep-draw-ing method to measure the ela-sticity and adhesive properties ofpaints and lacquers. The resultswere so convincing that the pro-cedure has since been adoptedby the paint industry all over theworld.

    the inventive Norseman A.M.Erichsen introduced tools for cup-ping test dies to the market,without which the batch produc-tion of deep-drawn parts madeof sheet metal would hardly havebeen possible. Numerous innova-tions and improvements follow -ed. A.M. Erichsen not only posses-sed a forward-looking inventiveurge, he was also talented incommercial matters and soonenjoyed international renown.Satisfied customers were evidenceof the quality of his products.

    1910It was probably true Viking spirit and the urge for discoverythat impelled the engineer A.M. Erichsen from Porsgrunn/Norway to settle and set up busi-ness in Berlin-Reinickendorf. Hisfirst invention, a water-cooledingot mould which to this dayconstitutes one of the most fre-quently used casting processesfor semi-finished products in thefoundry industry, enabled him tosecure the financial position ofhis company. A.M. Erichsen's nextinvention the cupping test was just as significant. This wasthe very first test method fordetermining the quality grade of sheet and strip metal.

    This test procedure was initiallypatented, but has since beenadopted by all industrial coun-tries within the framework of theInternational Standards Organi-sation (ISO). Just as temperaturesare measured throughout theworld in Celsius or Fahrenheit, thestandard for sheet metal qualityis the ERICHSEN deep-drawingindex.


    The absolute reliability of your test results is our top priority. All our research, planning, development,construction and production is gearedto achieving this objective not only inthe past, but today and in the future.

    measuring instruments cali-brated with the help of measu-ring equipment calibrated andcertified by DKD. This guaran-tees the supply of a precisionmeasuring instrument in com-pliance with highest demands.An incoming inspection is nolonger necessary whichmeans a reduction in costs foryour company.

    We are also in a position,upon request, to calibrate andcertify your ERICHSEN testinstruments already in use.

    We would be delighted towelcome you in our show-rooms, where we can convinceyou of our competence. Pleaseconsult us in all aspects con-cerning your testing problems especially in the event ofcustomised solutions. We willbe glad to pass on our expe-rience and our knowledge!

    1975 19981949Following the turmoils of thewar and the loss of his company,A.M. Erichsen resolved to start upagain in the west of Germany. Hisbest partner his son, Dr.-Ing. Per F.Erichsen had studied mechanicalengineering in Hanover, graduatedat the Metallurgical Institute of theTechnical High School in Aachen,and did his doctorate at the CoalResearch Institute of Dortmund.Establishing the new company pro-ved difficult without machines,tools, or construction drawings ina factory kitchen of the ironworksin Sundwig. Ideas and determina-tion were the order of the day initially the parts were made exter-nally and assembled by themselves.The modern factory we operatetoday is located not far away.

    Bjrn Erichsen joined thecompany after completing histechnical and business manage-ment studies at the Polytechnic inMunich and at the George Wash -ington University in the U.S.A..After taking over from his father who entered well-earned retire-ment from the active manage-ment of the business in 1977 anddied in 1988 he is now the thirdgeneration to lead this companywhich has long since gainedinternational renown. Under hismanagement the range of instru-ments has been expanded, prima-rily by the addition of modern,non-destructive measuring devi-ces for surface engineering appli-cations.

    The decision was made toincorporate tensile and pressuretesting machines, hydraulic andelectronic load and pressure cells,as well as calibration equipmentwith extreme measuring accuracyinto the production programme reverting to the field of mechani-cal metrology earlier controlled bythe company. Support was provi-ded by a group of competent for-mer employees from ERICHSENWuppertal whose knowledge andexperience in conjunction withgreat insight into the latest in thefield of hardware and softwarehas resulted in a wide range ofmodern products.

    2016In the course of 100 years theextensive Erichsen product rangehas been built up based on thetechnical fields of metrology andtest engineering. ERICHSEN paysstringent attention that theirmachines and equipment complyboth with the testing regulationsof national and international stan-dards and with the acceptanceterms of the industrial sector. Theseprovide the basis for global under-standing between the manufactu-rer and the user wherever the qua-lity of raw materials, semi-finishedand finished products is concerned.Design precision, perfect functionand absolute fulfilment of pur -pose: these attributes have toppriority at ERICHSEN.

    The following two testmethods represent the pointof origin of our company andprovide only a minimuminsight into the wide variety ofphysical and optical testmethods that can be carriedout using our testing instru-ments. As one of the few exi-sting manufacturers of theGerman testing machine indu-stry, we gladly respond to ourcustomers special requests.

    ERICHSEN-Cupping Testand Deep Drawing Cup Test

    One of the best-known testmethods for coated sheet metalworld-wide patented as earlyas 1913 by the founder of ourcompany is the ERICHSENCupping Test. To conduct thistest, a coated sheet metal panelis clamped between blank hol-der and drawing die and thendented (cupped) with a harde-ned spherical punch. In this pro-cedure the coating is subject toan increasing elongation andbending stress until first cracksappear. The displacement of thespherical punch in mm is knownas the Erichsen cupping valueIE,the measure for the ductility of

    the coating and for its adhesion

    assessment. The forming ofcracks during the ERICHSENCupping Test is observed visuallywith the eye or preferably with amicroscope. This simple, butuseful test method is frequentlyused in the incoming inspection.

    The ERICHSEN Deep DrawingCup Test is a practice-orientatedductility test for stamping lac-quers and similar coatingsunder intensified conditions. Forthis test method, a blank is cut - in one operation - from a sheetmetal coated by the stampinglacquer to be tested and drawnabruptly to a cylindrical orsquare standard cup. The DeepDrawing Cup Test subjects the

    To facilitate the search forthe test instrument complyingwith your requirements, theproducts have been groupedthematically and according totheir application. These groupsare numerically classified in thefollowing Table of Contents.Additionally, you will find a KeyWord Index with lateral connec-tions from test property to pro-duct group.

    The most important stan-dards to which the test instru-ments mentioned in this catalo-gue can be related, are listed inthe Standard Index on page 07.This list will help to find the

    coating on the specimen to thesame stresses which would beencountered in the practice bydeep drawing with blank holderforce, i. e. the coating must fol-low the compression, elongationand bending of the substratematerial under considerablepressure. The cylindrical stan-dard cup is drawn from a blankof 64 mm dia. using a standarddrawing punch of 33 mm dia.This allows comparative testsbetween manufacturers andusers of stamping lacquers.

    To intensify the test and tonumerically determine theremaining deformation abilitiesof the coating, a bead can be for-

    med in the wall of the drawncup. Tinning factories as well asthe coil coating industry oftenprefer square standard cupswith an edge length of 40 mmor 70 mm for quality compari-sons of their products.

    GMH 3851

    Digital Material-Moisture MeasuringDevice with Data LoggerThis instrument is indispensable forthe documentation of material stateby quality assurance systems. Incl.Wood Moisture Measuring Set 38 HF.By means of the integrated data log-ger there can be recorded up to 10000measuring values and processed ondemand. Additionally there can be 4material curves individually pro-grammed by the user to data acquiredby reference measurings with dryovens or CM-method. This instru-ments finally makes the usage ofpaper correction tables and so onobsolete.
