Determine the impact of falling dart using Presto dart impact tester

Plastic film, composite sheets, and flexible packaging films play an important role in the packaging industry. Testing these materials against freely falling darts is an important part of the quality process. This type of testing helps to ensure that the materials can withstand the rigors of package delivery. The darts are designed to mimic the impact of a package being dropped onto a hard surface. By testing the materials against these darts, manufacturers can be confident that their products will arrive at their destination in good condition. Thus, we at Presto have come up with one of the amazing lab testing instruments known as a dart impact tester. This quality lab testing equipment comes with a hemispherical head and is held by a strong electromagnetic dart holder that makes it easy for you to conduct a dart impact test

When you press a button embedded on this testing machine, then you will be able to assess the durability as well as strength of these types of materials with ease. Here we will discuss brief information about how you can easily determine the impact of a falling dart with the help of the Presto dart impact tester. So, let us get started!

Assess the durability and strength of plastic films against freely falling dart

Plastic films are prone to get damaged under certain conditions especially when they came across freely falling darts. When the dart will be dropped from a certain height then it will rupture these films. A good quality packaging film will not only resist these dart impact forces but is also be considered to be more durable. The impact resistance of plastic films is a crucial factor in determining the strength and quality of these materials.
Presto dart impact testing instrument will easily evaluate the strength of these films against freely falling darts. With the use of this testing equipment, you will be able to test your product and ensure zero rejections of plastic films.
This test will be conducted under specified test conditions where the dart will be released from a certain height and the durability of these plastic films will be tested. We at Presto are a top manufacturer of dart impact testers and provide you with this testing equipment at the best and most affordable prices.
Below we have listed the features and technical specifications of the Presto dart impact tester.
