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.

  • Universal Hardness Tester NEMESIS 9500 Series, by Innovatest
    The NEMESIS 9500 is the universal hardness tester most suitable for heavy duty testing in the Eseway standard range of testers. Partly based on the technology of the NEMESIS 9000. Built for tough environments, the floor type welded frame reaches a height of 2 meters and offers a work space of not less than 650mm height and a throat depth of 300mm. Rockwell, Vickers and Brinell, but also pure depth test methods such as H, HVT and HBT are part of the standard test procedures of the NEMESIS 9500. 3 models cover a range of test loads either up to 250kgf, 750kgf or 3000kgf. The frame of the NEMESIS 9500 is equipped with a heavy duty motorised spindle, allowing positioning of the test piece on the required working height. The NEMESIS 9500 has a descending test head allowing each test piece to be tested on an ergonomic working height. The linear actuator of the NEMESIS 9500 is equipped with a load cell closed loop system guaranteeing excellent accuracy and a wide range of fast testing procedures. The test head is equipped with a 6 positions modular turret (indenters and objectives) and an optical zoom video system with 5mp HD camera. High performance PC driven automatic and manual indent measurement with automatic filing and storage functions. Refined algorithms for automatic measurement on materials normally less suitable for automatic measurement. Three years free firmware upgrade as standard.

  • Micro/Macro Vickers Hardness Tester FALCON 500 Series from Innovatest
    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.

Multi pattern testing on multi samples, based on live overview and macro viewing technology. Copy test patterns, modify or “drag & drop” patterns from one test sample to the other test sample. Live vision technique over zoom and macro cameras, no image stitching required. Edge recognition (Optional) allows to make a test pattern following the test sample surface line. Single Measurement This function allows you to set individual test points wherever you like. The test measurement can be started using the surface view or the overview. Serial Measurement One or more test rows with positioning coordinates can be recorded. The measuring process can be started in the surface view or the overview. CHD/Nht/Rht Measurement For the performance of test series for CHD/Nht/Rht data of specimen according to standard. The test can be started directly from the surface view or from the overview. Additional core points of hardness can be defined separately for Nht measurements. Weld Inspection ISO setup for testing of the heat affected zones of welded samples. Overview & Full View Zoom Cameras The standard overview / full view autofocus zoom cameras with additional surface illumination, ensure a perfect overview or full view on your sample or samples.
