    Range of Application

    • Impact and impact bending tests on metals (Charpy, Izod – conventional and instrumented)
    • Brugger -Method tests to ensure the wear characteristics of toothed gear wheels
    • Wedge -impact test to determine the strength characteristics of structural adhesives An operationally ready instrument includes:
    • Basic instrument, with electro-magnetic pendulum release and motorized pendulum return, grout and heavy duty screw anchors, electrically monitored safety device and safety housing
    • Steel armament or concrete base
    • Test specific accessories such as vises, supports and anvils, pendulums and fins
    • Optional accessories such as PC equipment or specimen temperature units


    According to international Standards, the base frame should be firmly anchored to the floor. This is done either with

    • A steel reinforcement for the The making of the foundation is performed by the customer.
    • Or with a readymade concrete foundation with

    40 times the mass of the largest pendulum, incorporating steel reinforcement. The foundation is equipped with metal lugs for bolting to a solid cement floor.

    Please pay attention to the remarks in PI 476.
