alphaDUR Mini

The alphaDUR mini is the smaller variant of the alphaDUR which has been successfully used in hardness testing for many years. The technology is identical, and all the current accessories are compatible.

The alphaDUR mini is very easy to operate because all the information is shown on the large screen display. The hardness scale and material can be quickly changed by the touch of a button.

Measurements can be done quickly and accurately. The measured value is displayed directly after the test load has been applied. A test load between 1 and 10 kg can be chosen depending on the application, probe, and the sample surface.

The test load should be applied steadily, shock-free and along the probe. The test is done perpendicular to the test surface. Differences > 5° from the perpendicular will cause a significant error in the measured result. The minimum distance from the edge of the sample must be 5mm and the minimum distance between indents must be 1mm for harder material and 3mm for softer material.
