Instron has unveiled its new Dynatup 9250 impact test instrument, designed to measure energy absorption and related impact properties of plastics and elastomers, particularly for use in the aerospace, automotive, biomedical, and packaging markets.

The Dynatup 9250 drop tower features complete computer control, with impact velocities of up to 20 m/s for rigorous testing in the fields of R&D and quality control. Unlike most competing instruments, the Dynatup 9250 captures, plots and analyzes the entire impact event, enabling the user to determine important characteristics such as incipient damage, ductile-to-brittle transition point, maximum load, and total energy absorbed.
