What is Charpy Impact Test?
Charpy Impact Tester is a lab testing machine which is designed for the calculation of the resistance of impact to metals and plastics. The testing device works on principle working of the pendulum. The Charpy impact test can be performed with the help of high-quality of Charpy Impact Tester. The test comprises of vertical impact on the horizontally clamped sample, Charpy test is performed. On the other hand, when the horizontal impact is made on the vertically clamped sample, the test is known as Izod Impact. Both the tests can be performed easily with one testing device i.e. Izod/Charpy Impact Tester but with different sample placement fixtures.
How are Izod/Charpy Impact Testers designed?
The impact testers are designed in accordance with the international standard test method ASTM D-256, D883; D618; D1928; D1204; D1248 & E691. This indicates that the machine offers precise and accurate test results. The testing device is designed with high-quality and user-friendly features that help to operate the device easily. It is the best testing device which is used to evaluate the impact resistance strength of the material that is kept for testing and impacted by a specific amount of load. It is a highly precise, reliable and accurate testing machine which is used for assessment and is mandatory for polymer and plastic industries.
