Quality IZOD and Charpy Machine for Impact Testing
To study the toughness of material impact test plays an important role. With material’s toughness, we mean the feature of a material that absorbs the energy to get deformed. It can be seen that the brittle materials have low toughness factors. The temperature can vary the value of impact for every product. Generally, the impact energy of a material decreases with the decrease in temperature.
There are two types of tests to measure the impact value of a material that is IZOD impact test and the Charpy impact test. Both the tests work on the same principle yet work on different notches. Many industries use either of the test methods to analyze the material strength. These tests evaluate the amount of energy required or absorbed by the specimen when a weighted pendulum or hammer hits them. The calculated energy explains the measure of the toughness of the specimen. Both the testing machines work on the pendulum principle.
While explaining both the test machine, here is how they work. The IZOD test method follows the V-notch where the specimen is held in the vertical position. In this test method, the hammer or pendulum strikes the specimen at the upper tip. On the other hand, the Charpy test method follows both U-notch and V-notch with horizontal positioning of the specimen. In this test method, the hammer strikes the specimen at the point of the notch but in the opposite direction. The notch direction in the Charpy Test is positioned away from the striker.
