The International standard ISO 148 and ASTM E23 define the method used to determine the impact resistance of the metals in under specific conditions. The international standards define the requirements of the specimen, the test procedure, the test reports and the instrument for carrying the test. AMSE JBW series impact tester for metals are available in version 300J and 500J. Both models are provided with software interface for setting test parameters and drafting of the test report.
Essential to carry out the test according to the international standard is the notching machine for U and V sample preparation, available in manual or automatic versions. To conditioning the specimens at temperatures below zero we can provide the cryo-generator able to reach -85 °.
