Impact test determines the amount of energy absorbed by a material during fracture. This absorbed energy is a measure of a given material's toughness and acts as a tool to study temperature-dependent brittle-ductile transition. It is to determine whether the material is brittle or ductile in nature.

FICI-0150 motorized pendulum impact tester is high performance device and ideal for testing metals to Charpy and Izod standards at capacity of 150 Joules. Constructed with solid steel frames ,FALEX motorized pendulum impact testers are machines that you can trust and is safe, quick and easy to operate. It can be fitted with accessories for Charpy and Izod Tests. Each test requires a specific vice/fixture, specimen adapters, and hammers. Operation of the machine is controlled and test results are collected by using colored touch screen digital control unit. Test results such as energy absorbed calculated and displayed on the control unit.

With FICI-0150 motorized pendulum impact tester, after the test, the pendulum is automatically captured and returned to the starting position. This feature enables the starting angle setting to be varied and optimum test parameters such as impact speed and energy loss on impact to be determined.

Universities, laboratories of the institutions, automotive and aero companies, research and R&D Labs, as well as steel plants are typical customers for these kinds of testing systems.


  • Available energy is 150J of Charpy and Izod testing
  • Motor-driven raising of hammer with auto-return after test for increased productivity and operator safety
