Pendulum Impact Tester


Application Standards

ASTM D3420, GB/T 8808, GB/T 21189


A Pendulum Impact Tester is a specialized device used to assess the impact resistance and toughness of materials by subjecting them to controlled impacts. It consists of a swinging pendulum that strikes a specimen, measuring the energy absorbed during fracture or deformation. This tester is commonly employed in materials testing laboratories and manufacturing facilities to evaluate the performance of various materials, including metals, plastics, ceramics, and composites. The Pendulum Impact Tester provides valuable data on material strength and resilience, aiding in material selection, product development, and quality control processes.


  • Material Testing: Determines the impact resistance of materials for applications in automotive, aerospace, construction, and consumer goods industries.
  • Quality Control: Ensures that manufactured components meet specified impact performance requirements and regulatory standards.
  • Research and Development: Helps engineers and scientists develop new materials with improved impact resistance and mechanical properties.
  • Failure Analysis: Investigates the causes of material failures and identifies weak points or defects in materials and structures.
  • Educational Purposes: Used in academic institutions for teaching students about material behavior and testing methods.
