Instron (Norwood, Mass.), a manufacturer of testing equipment that is designed to evaluate mechanical properties of materials and components, has introduced Dynatup 9250, a system designed to measure energy absorption and related impact properties of polymers, metals, composites and resulting final components. It is intended for use in aerospace, automotive and bio-medical applications. The device’s drop tower features computer control that uses Impulse, a software and electronics package designed specifically for impact testing. It also captures, plots and analyzes the entire impact event, enabling the user to determine characteristics such as incipient damage, ductile-to-brittle transition point, maximum load and total energy absorbed. It also can test materials in extreme temperatures and is available with an optional specimen feeder for high-throughput testing.
