The robotic testing system for automated impact tests in the Charpy or Izod method

The roboTest H robotic testing system can be attached to pendulum impact testers for plastics or metals.

Plastics are tested using the Charpy method to ISO 179-1 or Izod method to ISO180 / ASTM D256. The automated impact tests are performed at ambient temperature or on cooled specimens. 

Metals are tested using the Charpy method to ISO 148-1 and ASTM E23 at ambient temperature.

Advantages

  • 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

Testing of plastics

  • 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.

Testing of metals

  • 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.
