Drop Tester

High-class drop testing

Heinä’s Drop Tester is used to test the breakage of various small items and components. The machine meets the following drop testing standards: IEC 60068-2-31 and IEC 60601-1 standard drop test as well as Standard MIL-STD-810G, Method 516.5.

Operating principles

The item to be tested is attached to the suction pads of the machine and dropped from selected speed of 3,5–6,25 m/s or height of 600–2000 mm (option 300–3000 mm). The dropping tray guides the item down towards the base in a right angle. With our Drop Tester you can also attach a high frequency video camera to the equipment in order to verify what actually happens, when the tested item hits the base of the machine.

The Drop Tester is conformable to the European Machine Directive 89/392 and its amendments 91/368, 93/44 and 93/68.

Different camera models available. DT3000s also available.
