Check pipes economically with
the Q150A/A+ according to the
applicable API standards.
Dynamic height adjustment
The compact hardness tester in combination with the electronic movement control makes quick, accurate and sensitive movement of test head possible. It is positioned collision secured forceless and accurate via turning angle (6 mm/s) - even automatically with Q150A or A+, if required.
Exact positioning & large test room
The sophisticated construction offers a large and well arranged test area. The fully automatic XY-slide with high precision optic path measurement system can be equipped i.e. with two 8-fold sample holders. Beyond that, customer speciﬁc magazines can be managed and created in the software.
Accessibility to narrow test places
- LD lenses provide an increased working distance
- Collision proof
- Overview and analysis via optical system
- Field of view 0.2 - 40 mm
Working room lighting
The functionally integrated work space lighting permits accurate positioning of the indenter. (Standard on Q150R)
Extended test area
The complete Q150 series can be customized. Send us your speciﬁ cations and you will immediately receive a customized concept.
Qpix Control sets new standards
Maximal repeatability. All test specific data are stored corresponding to any single test point. Test points can be checked or tested a second time easily.
Another perfect application is the testing of rail proﬁles. The sample image camera function on the Q150A+ allows accurate and fast positioning of the individual test series.
Up to 8 samples can be placed in the
Jominy sample holder for testing. The
testing cycle is fully automatic and
executed accor-ding to the norm.
Store, load & export data
All measurement data can be stored or processed. Among the functions are:
store list, load and delete export list as Excel and print list. Furthermore, the data can be exported in different file formats (XLS, XML, PDF, Q-DAS...).
Embedded samples for CHD, NHD, SHD
The sample patterns can be easily selected using the program. In addition to the single and row measurement, the user can select CHD, NHD and SHD.
Welding test samples
- Ideal for welding test samples or visual test point positioning jobs
- Test points can be norm-positioned based on the visual presentation
Sophisticated Software tools

Picture bottom: Graphic hint when test points are located to close to each other (3x d)
Identical parts testing
Identical sample test series can be saved as templates. Pre-deﬁned sample magazines can be used to activate all relevant data, such as test patterns, test methods and user ﬁelds.
Crack lenght measuring K1C
For evaluating the K1C value the 4 cracks are measured according to the norm. After that the MPa√m value is evaluated automatically. More

Bi-directional data interfaces
Qpix control Plug-in modules: universal, bi-directional data interfaces for order management systems. The hardness testing machine receives all order data and test plans fully automatic. After the test run these will be added with the results and sent back to the order management system. File import and export is configurable freely and therefore adaptable individually.
Data input device integration
Qpix CONTROL software module Barcodescanner (Option): Scanning, splitting and processing of barcodes and QR-codes. Data input devices can load test program templates or fill out data fields.
Fully automatic unmanned operation
Qpix CONTROL software module Remote-Plug-in (Option): The main control unit of a production line sends commands to the hardness tester - the Remote interface enables a fully automatic and unmanned operation via complete remote command
