Pyroshock Test

A pyroshock is the structural response of the test object to a shock load of a pyrotechnical process. Possible damaging effects of pyroshocks are:

  • Cracks and fraction in crystals, ceramics, glass shrouds, soldering joints, electric wires, sealings and epoxy resins
  • Deflection of small and light-weight structures
  • Destruction or failure of electric relays and switches
  • Damaging, especially on alignments, optic and micro-mechanic parts
  • Short circuits caused by detaching and transporting of conductive particles


· loads simulated by impact shocks
· shock by means of bolt driving tool

Classic Shock

· impulse hammer test facility
· hammer transfers the kinetic energy to the test item
· high degree of flexibility by varying the point of application and intensity of shocks
· measurement of shock input in 3 axes and Response
