Pendulum Impact Tester

Impact Tester Model IMPact 5.5 / 15 / 25

The microprocessor-controlled pendulum impact testing machines IMPact 5.5 and IMPact 15 (25) serve the impact strength resulting from an impact at standardized specimens made of plastics. These devices are to be accomplished suitably around examinations in accordance with the following standards:
• EN ISO 179 and 180
• ASTM D 256 method A and B
• ISO 8256 and others.

For the impact determination according IZOD, Charpy and Tensile Impact at different materials with different sample dimensions in the energy range from 0,5 to 5.5 J (IMPact 5.5), as well as from 0,5 to 15 J (25 J) (IMPact 15). Various sample supports and clamping devices for different specimen types are available.

Printer/ PC connection:
Over an attached printer a report with statistic evaluation as well as a calibration report can be printed. A further serial interface permits the connection of a PC’s using our k-BASE WINDOWS® - software.
Standard device including automatic impact pendulum brake!

Elmendorf-Pendulum Model ProTear

Ergonomically designed for ease of operation and conservation of laboratory space, the ProTear Electronic Model incorporates both mechanics and electronics into a singlefootprint design. Other standard features of the electronic model include air-actuated pendulum release and sample clamps, microcomputer-assisted pendulum balancing and a membrane switch display panel. The control panel provides one-touch clamping and test capabilities.
Other functions include data entry of sample information such as sample ID, thickness, basis weight, sample direction and number of plies being torn. The “Units” key enables the simple confi guration of result units.


  • Test Results include tear strength, tear per ply, average tear strength and tear index
  • Quickly enter sample data — thickness, basis weight, sample ID, etc.
  • Calculated Statistics — average, high, low, std. dev., range & variance
  • Configurable reports
  • Provision to delete and restore test results

Other models available - see downloadable leaflet!
