Pendulum Impact Tester 25Nm (SMT-SM-13)

  • In the field of industrial quality control, the impact test is a widely used test method with which to quickly and easily determine characteristics for a material or component analysis. The SMT-SM-13 experimental unit is a solid-pendulum impact tester, designed for the Charpy notched-bar impact test. The clean layout and simple operation mean the experimental sequence can be observed in all details and phases. In the experiment, the hammer attached to a pendulum arm describes an arc. At the lowest point of the hammer path, the hammer transfers part of its kinetic energy to the notched specimen. The specimen is either destroyed or bent by the impact and pushed between the supports. The notched-bar impact work required to deform the specimen is read directly off a large scale. In order to vary the output energy, the mass of the hammer can be changed by adding or removing weights. A brake reduces the residual energy of the hammer on each swing until it reaches zero.
