FDI-01 Falling Dart Impact Tester


FDI-01 Falling Dart Impact Tester is applicable in the impact result and energy measurement

of the falling dart from a certain height against plastic films and sheets with a thickness less

than1mm, which would result in 50% tested specimen failure.

  • At the beginning of the test, choose test method, and estimate an initial mass and Δm. Start test.
  • If the first specimen fails, decrease the mass of the falling dart by decreasing weight of Δm. If the
  • first specimen is not a failure, add the mass of the falling dart by increasing weight of Δm. Test as
  • the same. In brief, increase or decrease the Δm according to whether the former specimen is a
  • failure or not. After 20 specimens, calculate the total number of failure specimens N. If N equals to
  • 10, test over. If N is less than 10, add specimen and continue to test until N is equal to 10. If N is
  • more than 10, add specimen and continue the test until the number of non-failure specimen is 10.
  • Then the tester calculates the test results automatically. according to special formula.
