Impact resistance is one of the most vital properties for component designers to take into consideration, and the most hard to quantify. Impact resistance is a crucial measure of service life and it involves the puzzling problem of product safety and liability. Instron has over eight decades of experience in designing impact testing systems to mimic real-life impact conditions.
Drop Towers and Pendulums
Drop Weight Testers - The CEAST 9000 Series is built for measuring the impact performance of raw material specimens and finished parts.
Pendulum Testers - Instron pendulums are engineered to meet the increasing demand for accurate and repeatable impact testing on a broad range of materials.
