Model IT542 Pendulum Impact Tester

Tinius Olsen's popular model IT542 is a pendulum impact tester that can be easily changed from a Charpy configuration to an Izod configuration. These testers 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 and BS EN ISO 148-2. Note the links here will take you to the respective standards organisations and allow you to buy the standards mentioned.


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, as standard on the IT542, a motorised return and electric brake, and, optionally, safety shields (required for CE compliance), lateral expansion gage, "Low Blow" pendulum release, 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.
