Dynatup Instrumented Impact
A Dynatup 8250 impact tower is used to impact specimens. Samples are 4 inch square plaques or disks with thickness 1/8 inch or larger. Sample is clamped between grips at base of apparatus. Tup is released to impact specimen at a set velocity and energy. Test is complete when tup penetrates specimen and stops. Five replicates are performed.
Test can be performed with lubricated or non-lubricated tups. Non-lubricated is the default.

This test is exceptionally valuable as a means of quality control or materials specification. It can, in some cases, be used on a finished product to determine if the part will fail under the set conditions. Data gathered from this test are valuable for comparative purposes, to aid the engineer in choosing an appropriate material for a specific application.
