Overview

Instron pendulums are designed to meet the growing demand for accurate and repeatable impact testing on a wide range of materials. Used to determine the mechanical and physical properties of metals, polymers, composites, and finished products for both research and development (R&D) and quality control (QC), the pendulum family is capable of performing Charpy, Izod, and Tensile tests according to international standards. As uninstrumented systems, they provide the absorbed energy value. By fully instrumenting the pendulum, a more complete study of how the material reacts to impact can be gathered. This information is useful when evaluating the type of failure and the dynamic response of the material.

CEAST 9050 Pendulum Systems

CEAST 9050 Pendulum Systems

The 9050 Series of advanced versatile pendulum machines are used to conduct tests according to Charpy (bars/pipes), Izod, Dynstat, and Tensile Impact methods. With a wide range of vices and hammers that are easily interchanged, these pendulum machines can achieve impact energies up to 50 J (36.9 ft-lbs).

SI Series Pendulum Impact Testers

SI Series Pendulum Impact Testers

The SI Series of pendulum impact tester is designed for testing metals in accordance with ASTM E23. One model provides energy ranges from 125 - 300 ft-lbs (169.4 - 406.7 J). Supports verification with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).


MPX Motorized Pendulum Impact Tester

MPX Motorized Pendulum Impact Tester

The MPX Series of motorized pendulum impact testers are ideal for testing metals to Charpy and Izod standards. Available in capacities from 300J to 900J, the MPX is safe, quick and easy to operate. Fracta™ Software comes standard with the MPX, allowing for simple data acquisition and calculation of energy.
