The MTE is designed for the inspection and maintenance of hydropneumatic or hydromechanical gun recoil mechanisms in stationary environments.
MTE – Maintenance and Test Equipment (Level 50 or lower)
A typical MTE collects hydraulic power pack, electronic control, special tools and all accessories in an equipment carrier. The electrical source is usually 240 up to 400 VAC. The MTE is designed to be used only in a workshop.
We develop and manufacture various maintenance and test equipments to be used for checking and maintaining gun recoil mechanisms and hydraulic components of tank turrets and artillery equipment. As the configuration of such maintenance and test equipments are very different, we produce them only on demand and in close cooperation with the customers needs.
Our MTE’s are used in specialized maintenance workshops for carrying out functional tests (e. g. gymnastication) on hydro-pneumatic or hydro-mechanic gun recoil mechanisms according to the requirements given by the manufacturer or army docs. (Gun tubes cal. from 90 up to 155mm)
Currently in use are MTE’s for the gun tubes:
- CN90F1 (AML90)
- CN90F4 (VBC90)
- M256 (M1A1 or M1A2)
