Hardness testing is a basic test used to verify raw materials or as a quick check for materials that fail or aren't performing as expected.  Hardness tests quantify the resistance of a material to plastic deformation.

Hardness measurements are made by using the dynamic rebound testing method according to Leeb, the static Portable Rockwell hardness test and the Ultrasonic Contact Impedance (UCI) method.

  • Versatile Leeb hardness tester for on-site testing of heavy, large or installed parts. Rugged touchscreen designed to provide an exceptional user experience and best possible measuring and analysis.
  • Flexible UCI hardness tester for fine-grained material with any shape and heat-treated surfaces. The patented adjustable test load enables a wide range of applications.
