ASTM Impact Testing Machines
(Model : AIT-300-ASTM, AIT-300-ASTM-D)

FEATURES :
• For Charpy tests on various Materials
• Strictly conforms to ASTM-E-23-2007 speficiations
• Works on pendulum principle, difference between height of drop of pendulum before rupture and height of rise   after rupture of specimen is direclty proportional to empact energy absorbed by specimen and is indicated by a   pointer on a large dial for model: AIT-300-ASTM & on display for model: AIT-300-ASTM (D)
• Single stand design which facilities fast and easy positioning and centering of specimen which is basic requirement   of sub-zero testing
• Unique spring loaded braking systems for smooth and jerk free braking
• NIST approval of machine with samples from NIST-USA, can be arranged
• Model: AIT-300-ASTM (D) is a digital version of model: AIT-300-ASTM



ASTM Impact Testing Machines
