  • Load steps with motorized load change: 10, 25, 50, 100, 200, 300, 500, 1000, 2000 (gf)
  • Motorized turret allows automatic test sequence when changing indenter and lens position
  • Capable of fitting one Vickers and one Knoop indenter simultaneously and up to four objective lenses
  • Dead weight load application, provides long term test force stability and repeatability
  • Variable dwell times, 5 ... 60 seconds
  • Individual setting of illumination for each objective lens Software controlled variants for semi- to fully auto - matic hardness testing systems provide the further features:
  • Operation and control of the hardness tester via High Definition software (HD)
  • 1.3 megapixel USB camera
  • High-resolution overview image of specimen surface via scan function (stitching) with 2.5 x objective lens
  • Easy positioning of test points in the overview image
  • Automatic indentation measurement with illumination and shadow correction removes operator influence in determining hardness values
  • Motorized x-y table with 100 mm x 60 mm travel
  • Automatic effective case depth determination

Combined Micro and Macro Vickers Testers

Can be used for the optical hardness test methods Macro Vickers respectively Knoop to the following standards:

  • Vickers hardness acc. to ISO 6507 and ASTM E384
  • Knoop hardness acc. to ISO 4545 and ASTM E384
  • Load steps with motorized load change: 0.2, 0.5, 1, 3, 5, 10, 30 (kgf)
  • Motorized turret allows automatic test sequence when changing indenter and lens position
  • Capable of fitting one indenter and up to four objective lenses simultaneously

Combined Micro and Macro Vickers Testers

Macro Vickers testers

Vickers testing to ISO 6507 and ASTM E384, UKAS accredited.

  • Capable of performing tests using forces : 1, 3, 5, 10, 20, 30 kgf, with additional 50 kgf force on 5030SKV / TKV.
  • Unique nose mounted indenter, allows access to awkward to reach test points.
  • Fully automatic testing cycle, eliminates operator influence on the test results.
  • Test scale designation on display.
  • Bar graph and audible signal to confirm test routine with display of dwell countdown.
  • Alarm to warn of aborted test, ensuring a valid test has been completed.
  • UKAS accredited indenters and test blocks
  • RS232C output to PC and printer (LKV = single, SKV / TKV = twin)
  • Automatic conversion to alternative scales
  • Audible and visual indication of “out of tolerance” results, eliminating operator decisions.
  • Built in data processing capability. (SKV / TKV)
  • Dead weight load application provides long term test force stability.
  • Full range of standard accessories.
  • Calculation of average (X-bar) and range (R).
  • 12 component/test data files (TKV), reduce the requirement for a PC when data storage and analysis is required.
  • Variable dwell times times, 1 to 50 s.
  • Design of special purpose fixtures available.
  • Brinell software option, utilises a 1mm Ø ball to give F/d².ratios of 1,5,10 and 30.
  • Upgradeable with a camera and video monitor or PC and Computer Assisted Measurement Software (CAMS) to remove operator influence.
