  • Portable Hardness Test Technology for Assessing Titanium Weld Quality (.pdf)
    procedures. The OE relationship for Rockwell B hardness was used to calibrate the portable hardness test procedure. The portable hardness tester was based on using the ultrasonic contact impedance method. This study has shown that with careful attention to detail, portable hardness testing can be used
  • Principle of Rockwell Hardness Testing
    The Rockwell hardness test is one of several common indentation hardness tests used today, other examples being the Brinell hardness test and Vickers hardness test. Most indentation hardness tests are a measure of the deformation that occurs when the material under test is penetrated
  • Vickers and Knoop Hardness Testers
    specifies a range of loads between 1 to 1000 gf. There are two types of indenters, a square base pyramid shaped diamond for testing in a Vickers tester and a narrow rhombus shaped indenter for a Knoop tester. The micro-hardness methods are used to test on metals, ceramics, and composites - almost any type
  • Hardness Testing of Metallic Materials - NIST Recommended Practice Guide
    The Rockwell hardness test continues to be applied as a tool for assessing the properties of a product while the tolerances on the acceptable material hardness have become tighter and tighter. Adhering to "good practice" procedures when performing Rockwell hardness measurements and calibrations
  • Coating Hardness Testers
    Coating hardness testers use indentation, scratching or rubbing tests to evaluate the hardness or wear resistance of thin films of paint, sealants, adhesives, vapor deposits, CVD/PVD deposits or plated layers. Barber Coleman's Barcol ImpressorTM, Persoz and Koenig pendulum hardness testers (ASTM
  • Portable Hardness Testing Facts
    of portable hardness testing that is accepted in the field today. "Dynamic Impact" is based on the Leeb principle of hardness, developed by Dietmar Leeb in the 1970's. A spring loaded impact body is thrust to the test surface, effecting rebound. The speed of both the initial thrust and the rebound
  • Brinell Hardness Testers
    angles to each other and averaged. A formula or chart is then used to convert the averaged measurements to a Brinell hardness number. Test forces usually range from 500 to 3000 kilograms (occasionally down to 1 kg in less frequently used tests). Carbide Brinell indenters are 10 mm in diameter; however
  • Rockwell Hardness Testers
    The Rockwell test method is defined in ASTM E-18 and is the most commonly used hardness tester operation method since it is generally easier to perform and more accurate than other types of hardness testing. Rockwell hardness testers can be used on all metals except in conditions where the test
  • FAQs For Hardness Testers
    Purchasing a new Hardness Tester? Eight questions to ask your supplier ARE THE TEST FORCES VERIFIED DIRECTLY? United´s model TRU-BLUE II forces are verified automatically using a force measuring device traceable to NIST --both at the factory and in the field! IS THE DEPTH SCALE VERIFIED DIRECTLY
  • Hardness Measurement: Invisible to the Human Eye
    tests are determined after the test force has been removed. Any effect of elastic deformation under the indenter is therefore ignored. Instruments testing hardness under load by continuously monitoring a complete cycle of increase and removal of test force obtain results that are equivalent
