Drop Weight Impact Testing Machine

Impact Tester for Plastics, Composite, Light Alloys and Components

Instron Dynatup drop weigh impact testing machine next generation is the Instron 9400 Series. A drop weight impact testing machine is used to determine the energy required to break or damage a material in which a defined weight falls onto a specimen or a component from a specific height and with a specific impact energy and velocity.

The Instron® 9400 Series drop weight impact testing machine complies with all the main impact testing standards ranging from 0.3J - 1800J

Puncture Test Method and Other Impact Test Methods

Puncture resistance test, CAI test (Compression After Impact), Tensile Impact Test, 3 Point Bending Test and Wedge Peel Impact Test are the most common drop weight impact test methods. They determine the toughness of polymers, load-deflection curves and total energy absorption of impact events. The main ISO and ASTM standards for impact test of plastics are: ASTM D3763 multi-axial impact test, ISO 6603 for the puncture resistance test method, ASTM D7136 for the CAI test method, ISO 11343 for the wedge peel impact test method, ISO 8256 for the tensile impact test method.
