The HITS-X high-speed tensile testing machine is capable of control at speeds up to a maximum of 20 m/s (72 km/h). By combining a high-response force detector, a volumetric displacement gauge resistant to vibration and impacts, and software that minimizes vibrational noise, sophisticated data with very little noise can be obtained.
The HITS-TX model allows obtaining baseline high speed deformation behavioral data for materials by tensile testing materials at freely selectable tensile speeds. It incorporates a newly developed high response detector and a vibration resistant volumetric displacement meter, which allow obtaining highly accurate data with minimal vibration noise.
The HITS-PX model allows puncture testing materials using impact speeds that are freely selectable. Puncture impact testing involves puncturing a flat plate specimen with a striker that has a semi-spherical tip. This testing machine allows various data, such as test force vs. displacement curves, max. test force values, energy, and displacement to be obtained easily.

CAE Analysis Simulations Baseline Data for Product Design
To reduce weight and fuel costs in the automotive industry and other transportation equipment markets, the use of plastics and composite materials has increased. Due to the superior workability of plastics compared to metals, many parts that were made of metal are now being made of plastics. However, plastics are not as resistant as metals to heat and shock. For this reason, new materials are continually being developed and these materials need to be tested.
Additionally, in order to improve the efficiency of development, the manufacturing technique is simulated during the design stage, so the accuracy of these processes is very important.
An improvement in the simulation accuracy can be expected by making use of yield stress, maximum test force, and energy obtained through high-speed tensile testing.
