Notching Machine for plastic impact specimens Charpy-Izod MNC-10

Available markets: Worldwide

  • Equipment designed to perform standardized notches on samples, which are then subjected to monoaxial impact resistance tests, according to the CHARPY and IZOD procedures.
  • Principles

    The cutting tool has a vertical cyclic movement.

    Equipped with transparent methacrylate safety screen, to avoid accidents.

    The advance or approximation of the sample to the cutting tool is done manually by turning the front knob, it has a graduated scale to specify this advance.

    It is possible to simultaneously fit up to 3 grouped specimens, naturally depending on the plastic material and its characteristics.
