SATRA STM 609 Safety footwear impact tester
This equipment can be used for a variety of impact (drop) tests with the appropriate anvils and strikers. It is ideal for testing to safety footwear standards and meets the full requirements of the latest revisions to a number of standards.
This machine from SATRA's extensive range replaces STD 409 and incorporates many features not found on that model, including motorised lift of the striker mechanism which moves automatically to a pre-set height and includes a speed sensor that will determine if the correct impact energy has been achieved.
A slide mechanism ensures minimum frictional losses and it also incorporates a belt drive system to provide the striker drop height position. The guarding provides complete operator safety while giving full access to the anvil area for ease of setting up each test. An antibounce device prevents a double impact strike on the footwear under test.
The machine is supplied as standard with all the anvils and strikers required.
The impact test rig is mounted on a secondary steel block weighing approximately one tonne. This block can be provided with the machine at additional cost or a drawing can be provided for local supply or manufacture.
