To determine the temperature when the fracture mode of steel changes from ductile to brittle, or the NDT temperature, follow the ASTM E208 drop weight test
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.
The MPX Series Motorized Impact Testers work to various standards as it performs automated impact testing of Izod and Charpy specimens with high energy.
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.
Instead of reading a mechanical dial for Charpy and Izod Pendulum Impact Tests, turn to Fracta Software to automate software and data.
Impact testers are used by drilling companies to test drill bits made by diamonds and other hard materials to drill quickly and effectively.
Instron's Dynatup Impulse Data Acquisition works with impact machines simplify the determination of the failure and response of the product.
With a CEAST 9350 and High Energy test instrument, steel hand tool manufacturers can test the result of impact, whether or not it is intended for impact.
Instron's servohydraulic VHS systems are able to test materials that will be used in automobiles and subjected to high rates of strain and loading.
A CEAST 9350 can test the impact resistance of orthopedic implants that help with the medical condition Osteoarthris by increasing joint movements.
The success of saw blades is determined by the type, number, and quality of teeth on the saw, and the CEAST 9350 can test the impact on the teeth.
The CEAST 9350 machine with a high energy system can tensile impact test at high capacity to determine how materials will act when faced with a real impact event.
