8-position
tool changer

Improved speed,
Improved stability,
Improved safety

The easy way to serve universal applications.

Excellent image quality

Excellent image quality

The optics system of the new EVO series has been completely redeveloped. Built in the cleanroom on site at the Qness plant, it benefits from the company’s comprehensive expertise. All the new devices share one universal microscope system covering all the necessary visual ranges between 0.1 mm and 8 mm in maximum clarity and contrast. The Qness system guarantees uniform illumination across the entire image, regardless of the degree of magnification, and without dark edges.

XLED Brinell evaluation lenses

XLED Brinell evaluation lenses

XLED illumination modules revolutionize the analysis of Brinell indentations. Due to beading on commercially available lenses, soft Brinell indentations in particular can be subject to imprecise gauging results. In contrast, XLED lenses guarantee precise and repeatable measurements, regardless of material type and hardness, due to direct and wide-extension illumination.

8-position tool changer

8-position tool changer

The easy way to serve universal applications: The sophisticated tool changer concept with a rotational axis angle of 15° provides space for 8 tools in a uniquely compact unit. Downholder elements with a closed shape on three sides guarantee secure workpiece clamping around the test point – even for small test pieces.  

Freely adjustable operating display

Freely adjustable operating display

The 12” ultra-flat, capacitive touch display can be raised, lowered and tilted smoothly via ball-and-socket joints for ergonomically optimized use.

Reduced cycle times

Reduced cycle times

The new EVO product line guarantees optimized test parameters, a faster Windows10 PC, much shorter serial autofocus times, significantly faster regulation of brightness and image evaluation, all of which contributes to far more rapid cycle completion times in everyday hardness testing – with simultaneously even quieter operating noises.

Ethernet industrial cameras

Ethernet industrial cameras

High-quality CMOS 5-megapixel cameras with Ethernet data transfer define the current industrial standard. Unlike other camera systems, a far higher transmission stability is possible here. Additionally, the PC and hardness testing device can be set up remotely at great distances from each other. This is ideal in manufacturing environments in which the control infrastructure is installed in external switch cabinets.

Proven benefits included in affordable basic models

Proven benefits included in affordable basic models

Depending on the type of device required, the new Q250/750/3000 EVO hardness testing devices can be customized to include special features, such as a swivelling downholder, automatic workpiece recognition and dynamic height adjustment. All devices can be delivered with an external PC and Qpix Control2 M – beginning with the reasonable entry-level-models up to individually customized solutions.
