  • 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
  • 8 Important Factors in Selecting Hardness Testers
    Consider these points as you seek out a hardness test system.
  • Portable Hardness Testing Facts
    Why portable hardness testing? Portable hardness testers have come of age since the late 90's, with a vast offering of high tech, digital instrumentation. Small, compact and menu driven, these instruments have never been easier to use for unlimited types of applications. There are two basic methods
  • 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
  • History Of Nist Rockwell Test Block Standards
    in the form of reference test blocks. In standardizing the Rockwell hardness scales for Hardness Testers, NIST has employed instruments and procedures having the highest metrological accuracy possible. In June, 1998, NIST released the first Rockwell hardness reference test block standards for sale
  • Black oxide passes hydrogen-embrittlement test
    Protective coating has no adverse effects on fastener life. Notched square-bar specimens are black-oxide coated and tested to failure to determine susceptibility to hydrogen embrittlement. Fastener manufacturers routinely apply a protective finish to bolts and screws that prevents rust
  • Putting Q6A to the Test: Upon Dissection, Guidance Needs an Update
    for immediate release products. c) Hardness/friability: It is normally appropriate to perform hardness and/or friability testing as an in-process control (see section 2.3). This property was important when sugar coating tablets with a water matrix. There is no specific reason not to perform this test
  • Q & A Related to Eddy Current Test Systems
    Eddy current testing provides an analog means of evaluating mechanical parts. It is not a go/no-go gauge, but a proportional means of reviewing the characteristics of machined components. Although a go/no-go capability can be added to this inspection technique through the addition of a user
  • Medical Device Link .
    in medical and electronic devices. Indentation hardness tests are often employed as an economical method of verifying the physical properties of a material, but acceptance testing based only on hardness characterization presents some pitfalls for the manufacturer of high-tech products. Modern
  • Relating material tests to Seal Performance
    Test reports provide a wealth of information for specifying seal materials. Dan Ewing Testing material hardness, fluid compatibility, compression set, and other factors helps predict how O-rings will perform in the field. When specifying seals for hydraulic, pneumatic, and fluidhandling systems
  • Understanding an ASTM D 2000 Call Out (.pdf)
    " also identifies grades or levels of test requirements, hardness and tensile strength.
  • Health Bars - A Confectionary Challenge
    Manufacturers of health bars want their customer to feel that the eating experience can be as exciting as a scrumptious chocolate candy bar. Therefore the ingredients that they use for flavorings and mouth feel must produce a similar sensory experience. The important physical test parameters
