Amsler HIT600F CAI / HIT600F ISO drop weight tester

The universal drop weight tester for materials testing 

Testing at low impact speeds of 2.2 m/s requires a larger drop weight; if testing at 6.6 m/s is required, acceleration is necessary. This drop weight tester caters for both situations, making it the perfect instrument to satisfy the requirements of a wide range of automotive industry specification standards. The feed and safety concept provides optimum operator convenience and safety. With this drop weight tester pre-conditioned test plates can be inserted and impacted in less than five seconds, allowing many puncture tests to be performed without the need to install a temperature chamber. The instrument can also be used for CAI, Charpy and Izod tests.
