Impact Systems

Impact resistance is one of the most important properties for component designers to consider, as well as the most difficult to quantify. Impact resistance is a critical measure of service life and  it involves the perplexing problem of product safety and liability. Instron has more than 80 years experience in designing impact testing systems to simulate real-life impact conditions.

With capacities of 0.7 - 27,847 J (0.5 - 20,536 ft-lbs), the Instron family of impact drop testers are designed for measuring the impact performance of raw material specimens and finished components.
Instron pendulums are designed to meet the growing demand for accurate and repeatable impact testing on a wide range of materials. Used to determine the mechanical and physical properties of metals, polymers, composites, and finished products for both research and development (R&D) and quality control (QC), the pendulum family is capable of performing Charpy, Izod, and Tensile tests according to international standards.
The MPX Series of motorized pendulum impact testers are ideal for testing metals to Charpy and Izod standards. Available in capacities from 300J to 900J, the MPX is safe, quick, and easy to operate. System includes Fracta Software for simple data acquisition and calculation of energy.
