Notching machines are designed to notch specimens for impact resilience according to Izod, Charpy and Tensile impact methods. These instruments use a linear knife cutting technique to avoid overheating and consequent stresses during the specimen's notching operations. Therefore, an accurate notch preparation is guaranteed. Manual, motorized and fully-automatic models are available to cover the different testing needs.


  • Compact design of instrument for an easy and fast preparation
  • Manual and automatic models obtain specimens of different size and geometries for a wide range of plastics testing applications
  • High level of results repeatability and time saving test procedures
