Feature & Use

  • Automatic turret shifting between penetrator and objective lens, RS232 data interface, built-in printer
  • Hardness conversion between different hardness scales  
  • Automatic testing process
  • Precision conforms to GB/T 4340.2, ISO 6507-2 and ASTM E384


It’s suitable to determine the Vickers hardness of steel, non-ferrous metals, ceramics, treated layers of metal surface, and the hardness grads of carburized, nitrided and hardened layers of metals. It is and also suitable to determine the Vickers hardness of micro and super thin parts.
