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.

  • CV Portable Analogue Hardness Testers - CV Instrumatic
    A fully mechanical instrument of the highest precision, robust, and maintenance free. The large clearly marked dials on these unique instruments cover a full range of hardness values in Vickers, Brinell, Rockwell A, B, C, covering national and international standards. The Instrument The system is entirely mechanical employing the use of special pre-loaded springs which provide a load of about 15Kg to the diamond. Maximum penetration of the diamond into the specimen is 0.125mm (0.005"). Operation and Use The simplicity of the tester enables it to be used in almost any direction, without affecting accuracy. It can be used ‘on site’ with complete success. The grips are depressed to the fullest extent by using the palms of the hands and the hardness value can be read off the appropriate scale. Repeatability is excellent and the calibration can be checked by the user against a UKAS certified reference test block supplied with each instrument. Each tester is supplied complete with case and detailed operating instructions.
