The corner-less, elegant frame disperses the load uniformly for stability, and extends in the depth direction to expand the work space and improve operability. Additionally, because the central part of the frame is open, long narrow samples can now be measured as is.
Multi Turret (D Type)
Two indenters and four lenses can be attached.
User-Designated Test Force Settings
Using electromagnetic control, tests can be performed with a user-designated test force from 9.807 mN (HV0.001) to 19.61 N (HV2). (Minimum increment of 9.807 mN)
Test Conditions Assist Function
This function can select the optimal lens from the anticipated hardness, or determine the optimal test force from the anticipated indentation depth and hardness.
Fracture Toughness Measurements
The system can measure the crack length when the indenter makes an indentation, so the fracture toughness of brittle materials can be measured.
Measurement Mode Settings
The user can select standard testing, in which the indentation is read after each test, or consecutive testing, in which the reading is taken after a number of test cycles.
