This tester generates fall-down tests for specimens. The specimen is placed on a platform that falls down 50mm rapidly, in free-fall form. The test equipment is floor standing and consists of:
- Wooden Platform No. 1 to place the sample upon. This platform falls down from a height of 50mm to reach Wooden Platform No. 2, which is the support.
- The drivers are pneumatic cylinders. The cylinders first move Platform No. 1 upwards slowly and then let it quickly fall down against Platform No. 2.
- The control unit consists of an ON/OFF cycling timer to direct up and down movements, and a counter with an automatic stop.
