Ray-Ran Advanced Pendulum Impact System

The Pendulum Tester uses microprocessor technology to determine the energy required to break or rupture specimens in plastic or ceramics. The apparatus can test Izod , Charpy or Tension Impact , as well as carry out small diameter pipe testing and component Impact & Puncture tests


Pendulum Impact Tester

The Pendulum Impact Tester utilizes advanced microprocessor technology to determine the energy required to break or rupture specimens such as plastics, composites, ceramics, and nonferrous 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 your testing requirements.


Built with operator simplicity in mind, its ease of operation and high accuracy make it ideal for product development and quality control within production, research and development labs, and teaching institutions. The apparatus is extremely versatile. Impact velocities are variable from 1.5 m/s up to 3.8 m/s and combined with highly accurate variable weight hammers which are electronically released by a solenoid, impact energy ranges up to 50 Joules can be reached.

At the start of each batch of tests, a simple calibration of the apparatus is conducted for bearing resistance and windage and after each test sample has been tested, the results are displayed on the LCD giving the Impact energy in KJ/Mand KJ/M². Batch statistics of mean, standard deviation, and coefficient of variation are automatically updated after each test, and results are shown in graphical and tabular format for analysis when downloaded to the supplied Techni-Test PC software. For quality control purposes High and Low limits can be defined when test results are downloaded showing the user instantly if the material is a pass or fail.

Testing methods available:

Izod Test

Notched or Un-notched specimens can be tested using the Izod method. Complies with International Test Standards ASTM D256, ASTM D4812, and ISO 180. Impact hammer energies are available from 0.5 J up to 25 J

Charpy Test

Complies with International Test Standards 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

Complies to International Test Standard ISO 8256 Method A. Impact hammer energies are available from 0.5 J up to 50 J.

Pipe Testing

Sample diameters up to 25 mm can be tested with hammer energies of 7.5 – 15 J. The test specimen is supported as a horizontal beam similar to Charpy test conditions and complies with International Test Standards ISO 7628 and ISO 9854.

Component Test

The component test examines the influences of both the design and the manufacturing processes of a component by measuring the impact energy in Joules, required to break a complete or part of a section of a finished component. If a component has a critical cross-sectional area that needs to be tested, then by entering this area into the microprocessor the energy in KJ/M² can be obtained. The apparatus is supplied as standard with Ray-Ran’s Techni-Test Windows-based PC software. Test results can be printed directly from the Techni-Test software or can be saved and exported. CSV files which can be opened with Microsoft Excel.

The Problem

When your customers must be able to rely on your inks and coatings there’s no margin for error in your test and inspection processes. So, settling for second-rate equipment and advice is a risky business! 

The Solution

With several dedicated inks and coatings testing brands in the Industrial Physics family, our industry-leading product portfolio and expertise is even relied upon by leading paint testing laboratories.   

The Result

Artur Palasz, R&D Director at Spektrochem, said:

Many of our customers appreciate Industrial Physics equipment, because it is a world-class apparatus that they know and use in their laboratories. Excellent technical contact, perfect customer service and fast order processing time are undoubtedly additional advantages that determine the choice of Industrial Physics as our permanent supplier of laboratory equipment today and in the future.”
