Many workpieces require special considerations during hardness testing in order to ensure correct method application and reproducible results.
  • High precision
  • Speed
  • Safety
Specimen holders ensure the integrity of the workpiece, while clamping, vices, and jaws ensure stable and safe positioning of the workpiece. A choice of indenters for Vickers, Knoop, Brinell, and Rockwell gives you a greater choice of methods, while anvils and clamping devices enable a variety of sample geometries and applications.

The correct choice of objective lens is important in order to obtain optimally sized Vickers, Knoop, and Brinell indents on the screen. Other accessories include nose cones, carbide and steel balls, and spring levers and gauges for portable testers.
