Fully automatic
Hardness Testing

Several progessions and samples are created
and completed "unmanned" (i.e. 60 progressions
on 8 different samples in one test run)

Extremely resilient - extremely precise

Manually positionable table height setting makes this device ideal for fully automated serial and line tests on parts of the same test height. Testing proceeds without clamping. Individual samples can be tested by clamping with the patented swivelable downholder.

 

Slewable downholder

Slewable downholder

No long tool changeovers for inaccessible test positions. The downholder can be swivelled in and out manually (and via motor is required). Furthermore, the bracing elements can be changed easily and can be adapted to suit the customer's component.

A software
sets new standards

 

Maximum repeatability. All test specific data are stored for every single test point. Test points can be easily checked or tested a second time.

- Fully automatic row- and progression measurement
- Across-the-line and intuitive test cycle

Professional data management

Professional data management

Configurable protocol and data presentation. Wide range of structuration options for stored test item data. Adaptable content for export files and protocol content simplifies daily operation with Qpix Control2 software.

Well-arranged sample management

Well-arranged sample management

- All information at a glance
- Quick creation of new test jobs
- Pattern can be stored and loaded easily

Customer specific sample holder

Customer specific sample holder

Identical samples can be set up in the software in scale as 3D model.

CHD/SHD/NHD with Optimum Stop

CHD/SHD/NHD with Optimum Stop

Time-saving test mode ‘Complete all indentations – then evaluate’ and ‘Optimum Stop’ to complete test series as soon as the lower hardness limit has been undercut.

Surface indentation recognition

Surface indentation recognition

The adjustable surface indentation recognition function reduces the required eff ort of sample preparation for testing the hardness of non-optimum surfaces. Hence, automatic indentation recognition is also possible on critical surfaces (etching, grinding...).

Automatic minimum distance

Automatic minimum distance

The distances of test points are automatically set to minimum norm distance for more accurate execution of test results.

3 Steps to the result

load samples, load row, start

Load samples

1. Load samples

The machine moves automatically to sample holder height. Image of sample is taken automatically.

Load row

2. Load row

SRS - Speedy Row Set-up: Drag the row of test points to the desired position. The serial Auto-Snap function corrects the starting point of the test row automatically

Start test sequence

3. Start test sequence

The test sequence is executed according to the applicable hardness testing standards.
