High Energy Impact Systems
Tinius Olsen manufactures a several high capacity pendulum impact testers, most of which can be that can be easily changed from a Charpy configuration to an Izod configuration, or even to a tensile impact configuration. These testers come in several capacities and are designed primarily for determining the impact resistance of metals and are designed to fully comply with the specifications outlined in ASTM E23, BS EN ISO 148-3, BS EN ISO 148-2 and ISO 442.
These machines have a number of different features and accessories that ensure safe and reliable testing while maintaining accuracy and repeatability of the results. These features include, motorised return, electric brake, 'Low Blow' impact where machine capacity is reduced by limiting the release height of the pendulum, safety shields and a variety of result display options. All testing hardware is fully complemented by Tinius Olsen developed Horizon software that turns your hardware into a sophisticated quality analysis system.
These configurations and options vary by machine capacity, so please check the specs for each machine.
