This tester is a new type of product which is equipped with new features such as RS232 interface, automatic turret, high level LCD display etc. It is specially suited for measuring the Microhardness of thin, small metal test pieces and the brittle materials


Automatic turret switching between penetrator and objective lens
Frictionless loading shaft, high precision testing force
Automatic testing process, no human operating error
Precision conforms to GB/T 4340.2, ISO 6507-2 and ASTM E384
It can be used to determine the Vickers hardness of steel, non-ferrous metals, ceramics, treated layers of metal surface, and the hardness grads of carburized, nitrided and hardened layers of metals. It is also suitable to determine the Vickers hardness of micro and super thin parts.
