Shock testers and impact testers are devices used to conduct destructive test to measure a product’s ability to withstand damage. These types of test equipment simulate the effects of impacts on products and their components in everyday use and transportation. Shock testers provide reproducible results that are used to analyze the structural weakness and tolerance to external stress from shocks, drops and other types of impacts. A shock tester or impact tester is also used to evaluate a product’s reliability and durability to provide consistency throughout production. There are a variety of different types of shock and impact testers. More advanced testers gather data on a device’s toughness and resistance and generate report with graphs and waveforms. Impact testers are used to meet industrial and military specifications and individual test requirements, including MIL-STD-202, MIL-STD-750, MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-883.
