Hardness Testing

The determination of the material hardness of steels, light metals, synthetics, elastomers and ceramics is performed with mobile and stationary systems. We determine case hardening, core hardening and hardness profiles according to customer specifications and/or current standards (CHD, RHT, NHT, DS). Macrohardness and microhardness tests are made on samples and components applying different loads from 0.01 to 250 kg/kp.
