Falling Weight Impact Tester

Designed and built with operator simplicity in mind, the Ray-Ran Universal Falling Weight Impact Tester is simply the best in its class. It is used to determine the energy required to break or rupture test specimens such as pipe, sheet, laminates, composites, ceramics and non ferrous metals for material and component evaluation to international testing methods such as ISO6603, ISO3127 and ASTM D2444 to name a few.

Falling Dart Impact Tester

The Ray-Ran Manually Operated Falling Dart Impact Tester provides a basic method for determining the energy that causes thin flexible materials such as plastic film, paper and composite sheets to fail under specified conditions of impact from a free falling dart. The energy required to tear or puncture the test specimen is expressed in terms of the darts weight which would result in the failure of 50% of specimens being tested.

Low Temperature Brittleness Tester

Ray-Ran, a sister company to TMI, is a manufacturer of a Low Temperature Brittleness Tester. This testing instrument been designed to study the effects low temperatures have on plastic or rubber-polymer materials when subject to impact loads and conforms to ASTM D746 testing requirements as well as ISO R974 International Test Standards. Many plastic materials which are flexible at normal ambient temperatures become brittle at low temperatures which severely affect the materials impact strength for fracture. By plotting the percentage failure rate of the test samples against the reduction in temperature, the brittleness temperature of the test samples can be measured.
