Test of shock resistance

This is an equipment for shock tests on watch heads and movements. Shocks are produced by a gravitational fall. Columns are independent and identical, their design ensures a great measure repeatability.
The use of a 5000 G accelerometer enables the calibration of the different columns.


With the software developed for this device, it is possible to make various shocks without any limits. It is possible to make series of more than 25,000 shocks with various accelerations and in a totally independent way per column. A system of uninterrupted check of working temperature guarantees the stability of shocks' intensity.

The use of an accelerometer allows to measure precisely the shocks' intensity. Thanks to removable pads, the replacement of impact stuff is made easier. Universal supports of the equipment allow to make tests on every kind of watches.
