For impact testing steel with chemical elements like Ni, Cr, and Mo, use a CEAST 9350 drop tower with a Charpy insert to determine the resilience of the material.
ASTM E23, A370, and ISO 148-1 cover Charpy impact testing of notched-bar metallic specimens. Size limitations of the product needing tested or standard size specimens exceeding 80% of the capacity of the tester require the ability to test sub-size specimens.
A SI-1K3 Pendulum Impact Tester with W-3550 tongs can be used in accordance with ASTM E23 NIST requirements for charpy pendulum impact testing.
The MPX Series Motorized Impact Testers work to various standards as it performs automated impact testing of Izod and Charpy specimens with high energy.
Instead of reading a mechanical dial for Charpy and Izod Pendulum Impact Tests, turn to Fracta Software to automate software and data.
