Amsler HIT1100F/HIT2000F drop weight testers

Materials and component testing with a single instrument 

Testing components often places particular demands on a drop weight tester. The impact surfaces of the component are often not exactly at right angles to the impact direction, necessitating sturdy guides for the tup-holder. Many components have to be secured in special holders; the drop weight tester is equipped with a T-slotted platform for this purpose, enabling flexible fixture positioning. If tests are to be performed at low or elevated temperatures, the entire test arrangement must be accommodated in a temperature chamber. The Amsler HIT1100F and HIT2000F drop-weight testers are optimized for this situation; with the appropriate fixtures they can additionally be used for many standardized materials tests.
