Flexible Hardness testing modules for automated systems

These testing modules are ideal for the task of expanding on existing systems. Hence expense can be spared as there is no need to acquire special machinery, plants or lines. The testing module can also be integrated into new plants, systems and production lines. This enables hardness testing to be added directly to the flow of production as early as the planning phase. Work pieces do not need to be removed from the production process and 100% of the pieces can be tested.

Quickest possible Rockwell tests

DuraPro 100 uses the indent depth gauging hardness testing method. Since optical evaluation of the test indentation is not required, results can be obtained very quickly. Load application occurs via the tried and tested spring bushing system. Spring bushing can be used for a broad spectrum of load ranges and can be changed as required.

DuraPro 300/400/500 are universal hardness testing modules with a high definition 1/2“ camera for fully automatic, standardised image analysis of optical testing methods. Load application is done via the tried and tested closed control loop method facilitating a larger test load range.

Ultramodern autofocus technology
The autofocus function is based on the principle of direct pressure gauging by which the integrated weighing cell registers exactly when the indenter touches the surface. In this way the focusing can already be determined while testing.

Fully automatic image evaluation
One important factor in ensuring the accuracy of test results is the measurement of the test indentation. Exact results can only be achieved with clearly distinguishable test indentations, optimal contrast settings and ideal brightness. The camera electronics regulate picture settings independently of the operator, thus maximising image recognition. Particularly when testing unpolished surfaces, this function is a prerequisite for automatic, operator-independent indentation recognition.
