In the lab, technicians can determine the notch toughness of metal specimens by conducting Charpy impact tests. Qualitest offers a range of Charpy Impact Specimen Broaching Machines for conducting fast, accurate, and reliable tests.
One such model, the hand-operated Charpy Notch Broaching Machine, was recently delivered to Fundación Universidad del Norte in Columbia. Suitable for bench-mounting, this model will save time at the Fundación Universidad del Norte laboratory by enabling technicians to conduct impact tests more efficiently.
Suitable for use on 10mm square allow steel specimens up to a hardness of 42 Rockwell C, the Charpy Notch Broaching Machine will cut Charpy ‘V’ and ‘U’ notches and Izod ‘V’ in compliance with the following standards:
- ASTM A370 - 1977 (U.S.A.)
- BS131 Pt. 1: 1982) IS1598 1977) BS EN 10 045-1 :1990
- DEF.STAN 10-13/2 (U.K.)
- DIN 50115 :1975 (Europe)
- IS1499: 1977) IS1598: 1977) (India)
- Z.2202 1980 (Japan)
- SABS 056 1973 (South Africa)
With a 17” long broaching tool, 57 cutting teeth, and precision material removal up to 0.001”, the Charpy Notch Broaching Machine makes precision notches, allowing Fundación Universidad del Norte technicians to conduct accurate notch toughness readings in as little as ten seconds.
