Rockwell Hardness Testing:

The meticulous application of two levels of force at specified rates and dwell times. Modern advancements have automated the entire testing procedure, ensuring precision and efficiency. 

Digital Rockwell Benchtop Hardness Testers:

Specifically designed for carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron, non-ferrous metals, and engineering plastics, Digital Rockwell Benchtop Hardness Testers offer unparalleled precision and efficiency. These testers feature a user-friendly touchscreen interface and USB data storage for enhanced usability and data management.

Brinell Hardness Testing:

Ideal for large, porous testing of less hard metals like castings, Brinell hardness testing employs benchtop systems equipped with closed-loop technology. This ensures accurate measurements, while software-driven digital optical systems provide advantages over traditional manual microscopes, enhancing the accuracy and reliability of results.

Vickers/Knoop Hardness Testing:

Micro Vickers/Knoop Hardness Testers emerge as cost-effective solutions for thin and small workpieces. Offering three types of turret control—manual, automatic, and software-driven—these testers cater to various testing scenarios. Macro Vickers Hardness Testers bridge the gap between superficial Rockwell and micro Vickers machines, catering to diverse applications in materials testing.

Shore Testers (Durometers):

Tailored for portable hardness testing, Shore Testers are designed for materials like rubber, soft plastics, and leather. Electronic Durometers, measuring Shore A and Shore D values, provide ease of use with a large LED display and a simple 3-button control interface.

Portable Hardness Testing:

Two popular digital methods, Dynamic Impact and ultrasonic testing, offer distinct advantages. Dynamic Impact, based on the Leeb principle, provides efficient and accurate results and can be brought directly to the workpiece. Ultrasonic testing, on the other hand, offers a non-destructive alternative, ensuring suitability for small and thin workpieces without leaving a mark.

UCI (Ultrasonic Contact Impedance) Technology:

Ultrasonic Contact Impedance (UCI) technology, based on ultrasonics, enables surface testing without marking. This non-destructive method is particularly suitable for thin and small work parts, finding applications in aerospace, automotive, medical parts, and more.
