A new drop-tower impact tester measures energy absorption and impact properties of polymers, composites, and component assemblies. Dynatup 9250 from Instron Corp., Norwood, Mass., is said to be particularly well suited to measuring finished assemblies for automotive, aerospace, and medical applications. Unlike most competing instruments, says Instron, this unit captures the entire impact event, enabling the user to determine important characteristics such as incipient damage, ductile-tobrittle transition point, maximum load, and total energy absorbed.
