Hardness 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 Rockwell and Brinell Hardness Tester Verzus 710 Series

  • 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.

  • INNOVATEST FALCON 5000 Micro/Macro Vickers & Low Load Brinell Hardness Tester
    The FALCON 5000 is the most revolutionary, advanced and powerful Micro Vickers, Vickers hardness testing machine currently available. Apart from Micro Vickers, Vickers, Knoop and low force Brinell scales, configuration of the FALCON 5000 is freely definable and offers flawless upgrades to hardness testing according to standards of Superficial Rockwell, regular Rockwell & higher force Brinell hardness scales. In its ultimate configuration and most advanced version, the FALCON 5000 offers fully automatic advanced coordinate pattern, weld pattern and free style testing of metallic and plastic parts in any common hardness scale; • Micro Vickers • Vickers • Knoop • Superficial Rockwell • Rockwell • KIC fracture toughness • Brinell • HVT (Vickers depth) • HBT (Brinell depth) • ISO 2039 1 & 2 for plastics Stunning Test Force Range The servo driven testers force actuator allows test forces from 10gf up to 250kgf, currently unique on the world market. Great efforts have been taken by INNOVATEST® in designing our own ultra-precise load cells and force control electronics, that are the foundation of this new product. The load/force actuator driven by top class servo technology positions the test head at light speed and at sub-micron level accuracy, in any required position. Setting the GLOBAL Standards for Advanced High Speed Turrets The FALCON 5000’s high speed, 8 position turret, has the first in the industry, standard built in laser positioning system. • The 8 position turret also containts 2 HD cameras with autofocus and optical zoom system, allowing stage (over)viewing at indenter position • Quick change stage & anvil post • Ultra fast, dedicated system controller with i7 processor and 2 Intel SSD drives • Advanced report generator with extended CSV export functionality Quick Change Stage & Anvil Post Alternatively to the standard ultra-fast motorised CNC stages, there is the option to install larger T-slot stages, fixed stages and a number of anvils. To save time exchanging the nearly unlimited choice of stage and anvil options, the tester has another unique feature: The "Quick Change" accessories post, the tester can reconfigure in seconds. Safety First / Collision Detection System In order to ensure maximum safety for the user and to protect the tester against user errors, all FALCON models have an advanced collision detection warning and Z-Axis / test head retraction system. This system is triggered by any uncomon force on the turret and will stop and retract the test head in milliseconds. Finders, hands and work pieces are safe and there is no risk of damage to the indentors. Clamping Device An integrated clamping device will firmly hold the work piece against the anvil or test table while performing Rockwell or other depth measuring tests (optional).
