Available from IDM Instruments , B0008 bedding impact testers have been specifically designed and manufactured to perform numerous tests and evaluations of innerspring, boxspring and foam mattresses. The bedding impact testers can also be used to test chairs, cushions and other similar products.
The testing machines consist of a 79.5 ± 1kg platen, which drops down and impacts the test specimen from different heights as selected by the operator. This allows comparison of the results obtained by the different impacts.
Bedding impact testers can be used to impact any locations on the specimen, including middle areas, corners and edges to compare performance of both inner and outer components.
B0008 bedding impact testers operate by testing each product at the same position, once a location is set for comparison.
Bedding impact testers meet the ASTM F1566 and American Innerspring Manufacturers (AIMA) standards.
