Bowers Quality ‘Hard’ to Beat in ‘Testing’ Times

Further extending the company’s comprehensive range of material testing devices, Bowers Metrology has launched an advanced range of regular and superficial Rockwell Hardness Testers. Bowers claims that its manual W-600BDL, motorised W-600MBDL and W-600MBDL/S testers offer outstanding accuracy, reliability and durability at a very affordable price.

Given the range’s high specification and generous working envelope, able to accommodate large test specimens, the range provides users with fast, accurate and repeatable hardness readings (conforming to EN-ISO 6508 and ASTM-E18) in areas such as inspection departments and on the shop floor.

The flexible range is able to provide direct readings of Rockwell HRA. B, C, D, E, F, G, K, L, M, P, R and S scales, plus conversions to Brinell and Vickers scales. Further advanced functions include Go/No Go limit settings, 99 memory positions, internal storage for 50 test program settings and full statistical functions.

The easy to operate testers include selectable control of load duration (dwell time), simple load force selection and an oil brake with variable damping by an adjustable knob. A simple menu and high visibility digital display gives the user access to all functions and test status, whilst all readings can be exported to computers, printers, etc, via a USB-2 output.

Bowers Metrology’s commitment to customer service includes comprehensive UKAS Certification and instrument service and repair facility. Demonstrations of any of Bowers’ advanced range of bench hardness testers can be arranged at customer’s premises.
