• Fully computerized (PCbased) Micro hardness tester.
  • Direct and accurate measurement of micro hardnessnumber using 'state of art' image processing technology
  • Wide testing range from soft metal such as lead up to hardest, likehardened steel
  • High accuracy and repeatability of measurement at all loads.
  • Small size of indentation makes it a non-destructive
  • testing on finished components.
  • Load selection by external knob
  • Motorized loading and unloading cycle.
  • Small loads allow testing of thin sheet metal

Advanced windows basedsoftware includes :
  • Latest GUI features with user friendly software.
  • Online indentation setting & focusing PC monitor
  • Advance image processing : algorithms implemented for precise calculation of hardness numbers with various options to coverall ranges of specimen.
  • Batch file processing : Option for data storage & reports generation for case depth analysis etc.
  • Statistic ale valuation : Software for calculating standard deviation, mean, medium, frequency distribution graph,variation graph etc.
  • Calibration mode facility

  • The machine frame is designed to accommodate the high precision loading system
  • Specimen is clamped by vice or supported by proper fixtures. The test cycle is fully automatic
  • The accurate load is allied on a diamond indenter by means of dead weights.
  • After lapse of time, the load is removed automatically
  • The image is digitalized using a CCD camera fitted on the machine and is captured by the PC.
  • The diagonals of the indentation are measured by the PC and the Micro hardness number is displayed directly on monitor.
