Free Fall Shock Testing Machines
The FSM produces classical shock waves by dropping a table guided by polished shafts onto a programmer backed up by a solid steel reaction mass. The reaction mass is suspended on springs or airsprings and damped by shock abosorbers to isolate the shock loads from the supporting floor.
Pneumatic Shock Machines
Pneumatic Shock Machines are available in multiple configurations including Vertical and Horizontal options. PSM series machines use compressed air to accelerate the carriage toward the impact surface. Elastomer pads between the carriage and impact surface are used to produce half-sine pulses.
