Developed in close collaboration with our customers

ZwickRoell has been delivering quality impact testing systems for years. Based on this experience, ZwickRoell has developed a new drop weight tester product series under the name Amsler.

Testing components often places particular demands on a drop weight tester. The impact surface of the component is often not at an exact right angle to the direction of impact, which means the guides must be massive Some components must even be fixed in special grips. If the test is performed at high or low temperatures, the entire test setup must be housed in a temperature chamber.

The Amsler HIT1100/2000F is ideal for this type of testing and, thanks to tooling designed for this purpose, can be used for a wide variety of standardized tests in materials testing.

  • The drop weight tester can be optionally equipped with a temperature chamber and an acceleration unit.
  • The modular design enables a wide range of applications:

    • Multiaxial puncture on plates
    • Charpy, IZOD
    • Components testing

Individual test tasks

We are ready to meet your individual test tasks. From helmets to airbag housing to gloves, this drop weight tester provides the flexibility it needs to be the right testing solution for your application.

Temperature chamber

If the test is performed at high or low temperatures, the entire test setup must be housed in a temperature chamber. The Amsler HIT1100F and HIT2000F drop weight testers are ideal for this type of testing and, thanks to fixtures designed for this purpose, can be used for a wide variety of standardized tests in materials testing. The chamber is used for specimen tempering and testing from -70 to +180 ºC. It is heated using electrical resistors and cooled via liquid nitrogen. Temperature uniformity is ensured by a fan that circulates the air/nitrogen mixture within the chamber. The required set temperature or permissible temperature deviation can be set through testXpert III.

Thermoplastics and thermosetting molding materials

A key aspect of the characterization of molding materials is the inter-laboratory reproducibility of test results. Specimen production, specimen shapes, and test sequences are all specified in detail, with rigorous demands on both repeatability and traceability. In quality control, the basic standard of evaluation is the change in measured values over a period of time.
