Positioning System for Head Impact Pendulum
3-dimensional positioning system serves to accommodate and
position a head impact pendulum in longitudinal, lateral and
vertical directions. It can also be employed for positioning
a torso launcher.
The heart of the 3D positioning system is a column adjustable
in X and Y-directions, attached to which is an angle console
adjustable in Z-direction for mounting the respective impact
test system. The movements in longitudinal, lateral and vertical
directions are accomplished by means of geared motors and
spindles. Automatic clamping elements simplify secure clamping
of all moving components.
PC control and a manual operating
panel are available to operate the positioning system. The
PC control allows automatic, semi-automatic and manual positioning.
