Material Testing

With so many materials and applications in the world, you need to know that you can trust your products are durable and do what your engineers designed them to do. Manufacturers rely on results from hardness testing and international safety standards require materials to have a specific hardness or stiffness. Different metals need to be tested according to different hardness testing standards, whether it’s using a Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers or a Universal machine. Bowers Group have a variety of portable, bench and floor models in our product range to provide a solution for your hardness testing needs, whatever it may be.

  • INNOVATEST VERZUS 700 Rockwell and Brinell Hardness Tester Verzus 710 Series
    The VERZUS 700 series is a new generation of hardness testing instrument. Constructed around a rock solid C-frame with unparalleled rigidity, the closed loop system based on a load cell and precision force actuator guarantees the best GR & R results ever seen on Rockwell hardness testers. The tester meets or exceeds the ISO, ASTM and JIS standards and easily passes Nadcap auditing.

  • INNOVATEST FALCON 500 Micro/Macro Vickers Hardness Tester
    The FALCON 500 series, Micro Vickers, Vickers and Micro Brinell hardness testing machines improve conventional hardness testing methods and focus on eliminating user influence on the test results. The unique force actuator system utilizes an electronically controlled closed loop system and advanced force sensor technology to achieve absolute accuracy, reliability and repeatability, on each of the forces used for a test. IMPRESSIONS software allows file storing, test program setting and storing, image zoom, auto focus, limit settings, conversions to other hardness scales, system setup and (remote) control, pattern testing (CHD/Nht/Rht) and widely contributes to the high reproducibility of test results. Fully automatic image evaluation combined with intuitive operator software avoid operator influence on the test results.
