Falling Dart Impact Testers

A Falling Dart Impact Tester (FDIT) is used to test the impact strength of packaging & building materials such as plastic films, sheets, and laminated packaging. This test uses variously weighted darts to measure at what point the packaging fails. This test method is highly accurate & repeatable and is ideal for quality control and packaging manufacturers.

By testing your packaging materials with an FDIT you can improve the quality of sheets, films, and laminates. This leads to fewer failures, waste production and costs. All of our test equipment is customisable and can be made to meet whatever conditions you want to throw at your materials.


Benefits of Falling Dart Impact Testers:

Determine impact strength of your material.
Ascertain pass / fail
Easy to use
Versatile range of darts & weights to simulate a large range of forces
Highly accurate readings and results
