Charpy Pendulum Impact Test and Other Testing Methods

Charpy, Izod and Tensile pendulum impact tests are the most popular methods of determining the impact strength of a material. Understanding a material’s energy absorption properties is critical. It predicts the level of plastic deformation the material will be able to withstand. While both the Izod and Charpy pendulum impact test methods measure similar properties, the crack propagation differs. This is due to variations in specimen design and testing configuration.

Pendulum Impact Hammers
The ergonomic set-up of the hammers and specimen supports enable the user to work safely and efficiently.


Pendulum Impact Energy
Switching from high (50J) to low (0,5J) energy hammers and from Charpy to Izod configurations is quick and easy.


Integrated Control Panel
The integrated touch panel PC enables you to take control of your testing and maximize lab efficiency with an extensive set of test parameters stored for prompt use.


Double Braking Mechanism
The hammer disk brake on the manual pendulum assures high torque, low effort and smooth operations, along with double braking surface and convenient position.


SMARTER
Advanced Performances


Tester Display
The touch panel PC displays critical information, such as percentage of the absorbed energy, so that each test is run according to the testing standards.


Patented Hammer Design
The “one piece” patented hammer structure, specifically designed to reduce the energy wasted in vibration, ensures incomparable rigidity and superior accuracy.


Advanced Software
With the optional software, add value to results and export data post-test, from a professional report with graphs and tables to customized text files.


Thermal Conditioning Chamber
The optional thermal conditioning chamber, positioned to enclose the specimen vice, guarantees quick time to impact when testing at low temperatures.

Reduced Manual Errors
The advanced electronics automatically recognizes the mounted hammer and retrieves all its relevant data from the internal database, eliminating the risk of manual errors.


Accurate Energy Values
When performing pendulum impact tests, accurate energy values can only be achieved with a system made of a robust monolithic structure and a precise non-contacting magnetic encoder able to ensure zero friction.


Enhanced User Protection
Safety guards prevent unwanted access to the test area ensuring maximum protection.


Safe Pendulum Hammer Set-up
All instrumented hammers are wire free: any downtime due to hammer connection set-up and damages to the wire are eliminated.
