Drop weight impact tester Amlser HIT600F: Multiaxial Impact Testing

Amsler HIT600F Multiaxial Testing

The smaller drop weight tester for puncture tests

Application Amsler HIT230F

The Amsler HIT230F is ideally equipped for multiaxial impact puncture tests on plastics.
Its range of application includes material characterization of standard specimens in accordance with established
standards in research and development and quality assurance.

  • Multiaxial impact puncture tests to ISO 6603-2, ASTM D 3763, at room temperature and in extended temperature range.

Application Amsler HIT230F CAI

The Amsler HIT230F is ideally equipped for pre-damaging fiber composite plates
for the CAI (compression after impact) test currently used in the aerospace industry.

  • Pre-damaging fibre-composite test plates for the compression after impact (CAI) test
    as per Airbus AITM 1-0010, Boeing 7260, ISO 18352, DIN 65561, ASTM D7136, DIN EN 6038

Advantages Amsler HIT230F

  • Safe, easy, reliable operation
  • Good access to test area.
  • Design allows flexible use of accessories plus easy changeover.
  • Intelligent safety system – no need to operate safety door when inserting specimens.
  • Innovative clamping system enables fast, easy specimen clamping.
  • Tests possible over a wide temperature range without installing an expensive temperature chamber in the test frame.
  • Cost-effective external specimen temperature-conditioning can be employed and/or existing devices in the laboratory can continue in use.
  • Innovative design throughout the force-measurement chain delivers very low-noise measured values, enabling reliable identification of characteristic materials properties in the force-deformation curve.
  • Safety device plus operator-friendly specimen clamping for high specimen throughput.
  • The drop weight is raised automatically; the drop height can be set as required in a range from 0.1 m to 1 m.
  • High (4 MHz) measured-value acquisition-rate combined with high (16-bit) resolution.

Advantages Amlser HIT230F CAI

  • Safe, easy, reliable operation.
  • Good test-area accessibility.
  • Design allows easy accessory changes.
  • Intelligent safety system – no need to operate safety door when inserting specimens.
  • Innovative force measurement chain design delivers very low-noise measured values, allowing detailed monitoring of the selective introduction of pre-damage.
  • High (4 MHz) measured-value acquisition-rate combined with high (16-bit) resolution.
  • Drop weight is raised automatically; drop height can be set to any required level from 0.1 m to 1 m.
  • Precise, stepless damage-energy adjustment achieved by varying drop weight and drop height
  • Accurate determination of actual impact speed shortly before point of impact.
  • Mechanical device arrests drop weight after initial impact, preventing multiple impacts.
