HITS-X Series High Speed Impact Testing Machines
To reduce weight and thereby improve fuel economy, aerospace and automotive designers are increasingly utilizing light-weight plastics and new composite materials.
To aid in the adoption of these new materials, designers are employing Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) modeling methods to reduce the costs associated with prototype production.
Thorough mechanical characterization of new plastics and composites is essential to ensure effective modeling and the safe adoption of these new materials in final products. Particularly important for modeling accuracy is reliable input data concerning materials’ mechanical behavior at different strain rates and temperatures.
The Shimadzu HITS-X Series instruments allow the study of materials tensile and puncture behavior at testing speeds ranging from 0.0001 to 20 meters per second at temperatures ranging from -40 to 150 C.
