Falling weight tester

> Model no. 1713

The newly-designed IPT falling weight tester enables you to carry out tests on external impact resistance according to both the staircase and the round-the-clock methods. Thanks to the state-of-the-art PLC used by IPT, an impact frequency of up to 25 impacts within 60 seconds (at a drop height of 2 m) can be achieved. A servo motor ensures precise, high-speed weight positioning.

Programming of the test procedure is user-friendly thanks to the touch screen. With IptDataLogging ®  the system also enables automatic calculation of the H50 and TIR value in addition to determining, displaying and saving the falling speed. The software features individual impact evaluation and visual display of the results. To provide reliable protection for the operating personnel, the unit is fitted with a two-hand drop release control and doors which are locked during testing.

According to following standards:

  • EN 744
  • ISO 11173
  • ISO 3127
  • ASTM D 2444
