Along with a higher demand for improved safety and reliability, the evaluation of the dynamic strength (impact resistance) of materials and parts is becoming more and more important. This system can reliably measure various physical property values of aluminum and compound materials for bodies, values that are required for energy absorption efficiency at impact and CAE analysis at high-speed deformation. High-speed tensile testing and puncture testing up to a maximum speed of 72 km/h (20 m/sec) and a maximum test force of 10 kN are possible.
