Drop Tower impact testing for CAI

To properly understand the performance of Composites, one of the most broadly used methods is the CAI (Compression After Impact) test. Low energy impacts can be considered the most dangerous since the damage they cause can be complex and affect all plies of the structure from matrix and fiber crack to delamination. To ensure a level of high quality and compliance with safety standards, impact testing is a key in gathering knowledge as to how these materials behave and may be damaged when impacted.

Manual Wedge Action Grips 2716-00x and 2736-00x Series

The manual wedge action grip is designed for easy specimen loading, alignment, and positioning. After initial face to specimen contact, gripping force will increase as the testing load increases. Virtually no preload is seen during specimen clamping due to the design of the moving grip bodies. This makes them particularly suitable for testing high strength materials, such as metals and composites, ensuring that specimen slippage is eliminated.
