What are impact tests?

These are tests that provide information on the behaviour of materials or components subjected to impulsive loading (shocks, explosions).These tests can be performed at different speeds, different energy and by evaluating the different temperature on the characteristics of components and materials. These tests can be performed with two types of machinery: pendulums and drop towers. STEP Lab specialises in realising and performing tests on drop towers due to their advantage in terms of flexibility of use.
