How Do You Place a Specimen in an Izod And Charpy Tester

In the plastic industry, testing the strength and toughness of materials is utmost important to determine their durability. Thus, Presto Testing Instruments have come up with one of the amazing lab testing equipment known as Izod and Charpy tester that will help you to evaluate the impact resistance of plastics. This amazing lab testing equipment will work on the principle of the pendulum method and test your specimen under sudden falling force or impact.

Here in this article, we are going to discuss the steps to place the specimen for Izod and Charpy test. But, first, we discuss how this lab testing equipment will help to evaluate the impact resistance of plastic products.

Check the impact strength of plastics with Izod and Charpy tester

The plastic material is prone to get deformed or fractured when an external force is applied to it. Thus, measuring the impact resistance of these materials is essential in order to determine their durability. If you are a quality head in a plastic manufacturing company and looking for the right testing equipment for determining the impact resistance strength of materials then we will help you out.

The Presto Izod / Charpy Impact Tester (Digital) is one of the highly advanced testing equipment that plays a significant role in evaluating the impact resistance of plastic products. With the help of this lab testing instrument, you can determine the energy that is required to break a standard test specimen using the pendulum method.

The main purpose of using this instrument is to study the toughness and durability of plastics. A material's toughness is a factor in its ability to absorb energy during plastic deformation. Its sophisticated pendulum is controlled by a microprocessor that controls all the functions and the test protocols according to major international standards.

This high-quality testing machine will be helpful in testing the behavior of these plastic materials when they are subjected to impact loading. Now, let us focus on the features and technical specifications of this lab testing equipment.

Steps to place the specimen in Izod and Charpy tester

Placing the specimen accurately in this testing equipment is essential to get accurate testing results. Here we will discuss some easy-to-follow steps that will let you place the testing specimen accurately on these testing machines.

Placement of sample to perform Izod test

Step 1: Ensure that the fixture of the Izod test is set on the sample placement area. If not, first of all, change the fixtures to perform Izod Test.

Step 2: Open the knobs of the fixture. Place the sample in the fixture to perform the vertical test by maintaining the center.

Step 3: Close the knobs for firm placement of the sample.

Placement of sample to perform Charpy test

Step 1: Ensure that the fixture of the Charpy test is set on the base plate. If not, first of all, change the fixtures to perform Charpy Test.

Step 2: Open the knobs of the fixture. Place the sample in the fixture to perform the horizontal test by maintaining the center.

Step 3: Close the knobs for firm placement of the sample.

In this way, you can easily place the testing sample for conducting Izod/impact testing.
