Latest portable hardness tester technology. Utilizes both ultrasonic and dynamic type portable hardness testers in one unit. Can test non-destructive and handle small or thin work parts down to 2mm of thickness, as well as testing large parts. Extremely versatile, with many options and configurations to handle all types of hardness tester applications.
Non-Destructive Portable Hardness Testers
Ultrasonic portable hardness testers:
“Ultrasonic Contact Impedance” is based on a 136 degree diamond at the end of a vibrating rod being depressed into the test surface at a fixed load. The difference in Ultrasonic vibration frequency is then calculated into a hardness value. The UCI test procedure is slower than the Dynamic Impact style, however the “UCI” method of hardness testing is portable, easy and accurate. It also has its own advantages when utilized for certain testing applications. UCI portable hardness testers are not restricted to large mass items like dynamic type hardness testers. These units can test metals as thin as 1mm and at a hardness value as low as 20HRC (75HB). They also excel at performing hardness tests on larger, harder metals as well. Another reason for the rise in popularity is due to the fact that the UCI method is categorized as “Non-Destructive”. That translates into less scrap parts/ lower mfg costs due to necessary inspections.
