What’s Impacting Your Product Performance?

Impact testing equipment now available from United Testing Systems

The Universal Falling Weight Impact Tester

This unit is used to determine the energy required to break or rupture test specimens from Pipe, Sheet, Laminates, Composites, Ceramics, and can comply to various international standards such as ISO6603, ISO3127, ASTM D2444 to name a few.

Key features

-Features both pneumatic and electrical functions.

-The standard machine is supplied with a 2-meter variable drop height system with Impact velocities up to 6.26 m/s and Impact energy range of up to 314 joules.

-Taller frames are available.

Test Methods

Round the Clock Method - Lengths of pipe from a batch or production run are subjected to blows from a known mass which falls from a specified height as per test standard ISO 3127 & EN744.

Staircase Method - Lengths of pipe are subjected to blows from a known mass and shape but is dropped from differing heights depending on the results of each blow as per test standard EN1411.

Pendulum Impact Tester

The Advanced Universal Pendulum Impact Tester utilizes advanced microprocessor technology to determine the energy required to break or rupture specimens such as plastics, composites, ceramics and non-ferrous metals to international testing methods for Izod, Charpy and Tension Impact Testing. Along with pipe testing, component testing and puncture impact testing the Ray-Ran Universal pendulum impact tester should more than meet all of your testing requirements.

Izod Test - ASTM D256, ASTM D4812 and ISO 180. Impact hammer energies are available from 0.5 J up to 25 J

Charpy Test - ISO 179, ASTM D256, ASTM D6110, DIN 53453 DIN  53753, and BS 7413. Impact hammer energies are   available from 0.5 J up to 50 J

Tension Impact - ISO 8256 method A. Impact Hammer energies are available from 0.5 J up to 50 J.

Sample Notching Cutter

Often purchased along with the Pendulum Impact Tester, the Auto Cycle Notching Cutter produces precise stress concentrated profiles in Izod and Charpy specimen bars. The profiles conform to the ISO 179, ISO 180 & ASTM D256 International Standards​

Multi-sample loading feature of the vice can accommodate up to 16 test specimens 4mm thick, all accurately cut within approximately 20 seconds increasing productivity. ​

The quick auto-return feature ensures the vice is always in the correct place for loading and unloading the test specimens and the micro height adjustment, notch depth comparator and sample setting gauge ensure that the cut notch depth is accurately controlled.
