Q-Impact 50 High Performance Charpy/ Izod Impact Tester

ISO 179, ISO 180, ASTM D256

The Q-Impact 50 High Performance Charpy/ Izod Impact Tester is a high performance impact tester designed to precisely determine the absorbed impact energy and resistance to breakage of plastic specimens. The tester conforms to both ASTM and ISO standards. The innovative design allows this tester to be used for both Izod and Charpy test. The max capacity of this tester is 22J (Izod) and 50J (Charpy)

The Q-Impact 50 tester features the followings

  • High mass, traditional pendulum design concentrates energy at the impact point with minimal energy loss due to vibration.
  • Touch Screen control for quick and easy input of test parameters, interactive software allows for operator input regarding complete, partial hinge broken and non broken samples.
  • Tester connects to PC through RS232 interface for direct data acquisition. Test data can be saved or exported using the included software package. Data can also be saved directly to a USB memory for remote analysis.
  • Results are automatically corrected for energy loss due to air and mechanical friction.
