Inclined Impact Test Systems
Lansmont Inclined Impact Test Systems meet industry specifications with the added benefit of some new and innovative design features. The unique articulating carriage system we utilize allows the carriage to pivot and raise so that it becomes parallel with the ground. This design feature makes it much safer and easier to load test items with a forklift. After the specimen has been loaded, the carriage pivots back into its testing position and you are ready to begin impact testing.
The IT 152-4K is the ideal solution for inclined impact testing. The carriage dimensions are 60 in. (152 cm) square and the maximum payload is 4000 lbs. (1814 kg). The standard system can generate a maximum impact velocity of 7.3 ft./sec. (2.2 m/sec.).
The IT 213-6K is the answer for performing inclined impact tests on very large and heavy test items. The carriage dimensions are 84 in. (213 cm) square and the maximum payload is 6000 lbs. (2721 kg). The standard system can generate a maximum impact velocity of 7.3 ft./sec. (2.2 m/sec.).
Special – Large Format Test System
TruMotion™ Acceleration Sled
Our TruMotion Acceleration Sleds are not Inclined Impact Test Systems. However, often the goal of inclined impact testing is to evaluate the performance of unitized load containment – versus resistance to shock inputs. To properly accomplish that goal, it’s important to allow the unrestrained load to respond to the test acceleration inputs – meaning no bulkhead and no side impact. TruMotion Acceleration Sleds provide that unique, controlled approach.
