Hardness Testers

Hardness Testers

What are Hardness Testers ?

Portable Hardness Testers allow quick and easy testing of surface hardness. They are ideal for measuring the hardness of large workpieces to Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers or Leeb scales.

Portable Hardness Tester Uses

These devices allow the user to take fast and convenient readings to help to evaluate a material's properties. This could be strength, ductility and wear resistance. It is a very popular mechanical test which has been used in various forms for over 250 years.

Brinell Hardness Testing  

There are many methods of measuring hardness. One of the most common ways is by indentation, which calculates the force required to indent the material. The Brinell hardness tester uses a spherical indenter which can measure uneven surface. The Brinell scale was the first standardised test. 

Rockwell Scale

This scale is faster and less destructive than the Brinell scale as mentioned in our article Strength, Rigidity and Hardness
