Imatek has completed the successful installation of an IM10 Impact Test system at the University of Malaysia, Perlis (Unimap).

The IM10R-15 machine will be used by engineering students at the university to conduct research into the impact properties of a variety of materials.

Initially Unimap will be focusing on Polymer research, although it intends to extend the capabilities of the IM10 machine in the future to accommodate a wider range of tests, including charpy and high-rate tensile testing of metallic specimens.

Unimap is also expected to select additional machine options in the future to enable the testing of advanced composites.

Imatek’s IM10 range of Impact Testers accommodates a range of medium energy tests on materials, specimens and end products of various geometries.

All machines are fitted with laboratory-grade instrumentation as standard.

Very rigid construction ensures the highest possible accuracy of test results with the minimum of machine compliance.

A range of options is available on the IM10 system, which enables testing in accordance with standard geometries, as well as custom testing.

One of the options selected by Unimap was the high-velocity impact option, which uses an aircraft-grade bungee to accelerate the mass carriage to speeds in excess of 20m/sec.

Other IM10 options include sample strippers for extracting the striker from tough ductile specimens, a temperature conditioning chamber and high-speed fully integrated video system that provides visualisation of the specimen failure mode.
