Foundrax has, through continuous investment in R&D, remained at the forefront of developments in Brinell hardness testing. This has been demonstrated by a number of notable firsts:
- First in the world to develop a fully automatic Brinell microscope, incorporating it into a Brinell hardness testing machine to produce the first fully-automatic Brinell hardness tester (1982).
- First in the world to produce Brinell reference indentation reading blocks, reducing subjectivity in interpretation of test results.
- First in the UK to supply portable testers, enabling large awkwardly shaped components to be properly tested for the first time.
- First in the UK to achieve national recognition for the calibration of Brinell test blocks and testing machines
The quality of Foundrax equipment and services is endorsed by an impressive list of industry users, many acknowledged leaders in their field. Their products demand the ultimate in reliable hardness testing.
Every time you drive in a car, take a train or fly in an airplane, there is a good chance that somewhere along the way Foundrax equipment has been involved in making that happen.
