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.

  • Indenters For All Hardness Scales
    With official calibration certificates UKAS, DKD or ASTM. CV Instruments offers a wide range of indenters. All certified indenters will be issued with a certificate traceable to internationally recognised standards such as UKAS, DKD or ASTM. We also offer low cost factory certified indenters and specials (see below). Specials CV Instruments also offer special adapters for indenters to enlarge the field of application. Small gooseneck adapters are available in three sizes to permit regular or superficial Rockwell hardness testers to perform internal tests on rings, tubes and annular parts where the inside diameter, plus the wall thickness, is less than 50.8mm or 2". These adapters will fit any of the standard Rockwell hardness testers. The gooseneck adapter can be clamped into the bottom of the plunger rod (in the same manner as an indenter) and is not heavy enough to affect a reading due to increasing the applied load. The minimum internal diameter which can be tested is 11.5mm or 7/16". Ask for our separate product list of indenters.

  • Webster Type Portable Hardness Tester
    The WEBSTER Hardness Testers are portable instruments that can perform on-site hardness testing on aluminium alloys, brass, copper and soft steel. A quick and easy test, the hardness value can be read out directly from the indicator with a simple clamp. Suitable for testing aluminium alloy profiles, tubings and sheet materials. Especially suitable for fast, non destructive quality inspection on the production site.
