The Shimadzu HITS-10 high speed tensile testing machine is a servo-hydraulic UTM designed for wide range of test speeds ranging from quasi-static speeds to high speeds up to 20 m/s (2000/s). Small gage length test specimens are typically used in order to achieve the desired strain rates. The instrument can test a wide range of materials including metals, composites, plastics, rubber and films. Strain measurements at high speeds are performed using a 1 million fps Photron camera.
