roboTest H Robotic Testing System

For Automated Impact Tests (Charpy/Izod)

The roboTest H robotic testing system automates impact tests using the Charpy or Izod method at ambient temperature and on cooled specimens (metal or plastic).

Key Advantages and Features

  • Operator influences (hand temperature/moisture, off-center or angled specimen insertion etc.) are eliminated for high test result reproducibility
  • Qualified laboratory staff are relieved of routine activities, making them available for more complex tasks
  • Machine can be used during idle times (lunch breaks and night shifts), which utilizes the full capacity and produces faster results
  • Testing system reduces the testing costs per specimen and typically pays for itself within one to two years
  • System allows for reliable documentation and statistical long-term monitoring

roboTest H Robotic Testing System for Plastics

The roboTest H robotic testing system automates impact tests using Charpy (to ISO 179-1) or Izod (to ISO 180 / ASTM D256) methods at ambient temperature and on cooled specimens.

  • The robotic testing system can be mounted to 25 joule or 50 joule pendulum impact testers. 
  • Conventional or instrumented pendulums according to standard with nominal energy of 0.5 joules to 50 joules.
  • At a specimen height of 4 mm, the temperature conditioning magazine can hold 20 specimens
  • Before the temperature conditioning magazine can be mounted on the robotic testing system, it and the specimens must be cooled externally to the desired temperature.
  • The impact test is performed within 5 seconds of removing the specimen from the temperature conditioning magazine. 
  • Manual tests can be performed whenever required. 
  • An industrial controller with autoEdition3 automation software controls the system.

  • The robotic testing system can be mounted to 450 joule or 750 joule pendulum impact testers.
  • Conventional or instrumented pendulums according to standard with a nominal energy up to 750 joules.
  • Specimen feeding is suitable for specimens with dimensions of 5 to 10 x 10 x 55 mm.
  • At a specimen height of 10 mm, the magazine can accommodate 21 specimens at ambient temperature, and at a specimen height of 5 mm it can accommodate 42 specimens.
  • Manual tests (for example, from a cooling bath or furnace) can be performed whenever required.
