The VRE device is used to create V and U notches in specimens designed for impact strength tests according to EN ISO 148-1, ASTM E23, GOST 9454, EN ISO 179.

The VRE automatic notch broaching machine is designed to use one or two blades at the same time. By continuous speed control, the V or U notch can be milled into any material not exceeding 40HRC. With the sophisticated system, the chipped chips are captured at the bottom of the machine, where they can be easily and safely removed.

The device was designed in conjunction with optical specimen check OPTOLab 55 II to form a complete workplace that provides 100% specimens for the impact strength testing.
