Exact positioning and large test room

The sophisticated construction in enodised aluminium offers a big and well-arranged test room. The fully automatic XY-slide with highprecision optic path measurement system can be equipped i.e. with an 8-fold sample holder. Beyond that customer specific magazines can be managed and created in the software.



Dynamic height adjustment

The electronic movement control allows a quick, accurate and sensitive movement of the nose cone. Forceless, sharply and collision-proof positioning above the rotation-angle (0.01 up to 20 mm/s). An additional Z-axis makes this helpful function possible.


IPC-technique /
Penetrator turnable

IPC - Indenter parallel to Contour
The operator can adapt the penetrator to the respective contour. Alternatively manually or fully automatic. Based on this new development different material layers can be tested reasonable and precise.

Supported test methods and conversions


elektronische lastaufbringung 300px

Electronically controlled loads secure a quick and precise hardness testing as well as quick method change (maintenance free) and automatic recognition of the focus layer.


6-fold measurement turret

The 6-fold measurement turret is standard with all models and offers space for different test methods. For example it can be equipped with 3 different magnification lenses and the corresponding penetrators for Vickers, Knoop or Brinell.


Contour scan

Selectively the total or partial segments of a contour are delineated high-precision by means of the lens and are deposit in the program. After that the test points can be programmed in a certain number or distance corresponding to the edge. Hardness testing will be fully automatic based to this programming.


IPC-technique /
Penetrator turnable

For the first time in hardness testing the penetrator adapts itself fully automatic parallel to the contour during the test cycle.





Edge recognition

Fine adjustment with the automatic edge detection.
