Charpy Impact Testers

Are you looking for a reliable and easy way to test the impact strength of your materials and products? Do you want to ensure they can withstand high strain rates and dynamic loading conditions? Do you want to comply with the international standards and regulations for impact testing? The answer to all these crucial questions is Charpy Tester!

Charpy Impact Tester measures the impact strength of materials and components under high strain rates. Charpy Testing is essential for evaluating product quality, performance, and durability. 

Test Machines Australia is Charpy Impact Testers' leading supplier and service provider. We offer a variety of Charpy impact testers to suit your testing needs and applications.

Charpy Testing Procedure

You need to know the right procedure for the Charpy Impact tester to serve you well. Here is the testing procedure for Charpy tester that you must follow: 

  • The test specimen is prepared according to the standard dimensions and notch geometry. 
  • The specimen is placed across parallel jaws in the impact testing machine. The notch should face the direction of the pendulum swing.
  • The pointer is set to its maximum value, and the pendulum is lifted to its starting position. The test machine should be calibrated before the test. 
  • The pendulum is released and strikes the specimen. The impact force fractures the specimen, and the pendulum continues to swing to the other side.
  • The pointer indicated the final height of the pendulum. The difference between the initial and final heights is used to calculate the impact energy absorbed by the specimen. 
  • The fracture surface of the specimen is examined to determine the mode of fracture and the percentage of shear area.
  • The test is repeated for at least three specimens from the same batch, and the average impact energy is calculated.

Benefits of Charpy Impact Testing

Many industry experts prefer Charpy impact testing due to the advantages it offers. Here are some of the benefits of Charpy impact testing: 

  • It is a cost-effective, easy-to-form test method that provides fast and reliable results. 
  • It helps to assess the quality and performance of materials and products under impact loading conditions.
  • It helps to evaluate the effect of temperature, notch, and strain rate on the fracture behaviour of materials.
  • It helps to determine the ductile-brittle transition temperature of materials, which is important for selecting suitable materials for low-temperature applications.
  • It helps to compare the impact strength of different materials and products and to optimise their design and fabrication.

Impact testing by Charpy impact tester is widely used in various industries, such as construction, automotive, aerospace, and biomedical, to ensure the safety and reliability of materials and products.
