Model 1230 Wheel Impact Tester


The Model 1230 Wheel Impact Test System measures the results of impact by a dropped weight on wheels and other components. The tester is mounted in a pit below floor level with a two-post frame and guide assembly extending above the floor. Fixtures and detachable striker heads are available to perform vertical or angular impact on a variety of wheels. A motorized winch is used to raise the drop box and incremental weights from up to 4.5 m above the test item. A remote-controlled latch releases the drop box. Sensors measure position and velocity.
