    Fully automatic image evaluation

The intelligent control function ecos Workflow Image optimizes sharpness and brightness for all DuraScan models and measures the indent independent of the operator.  The automatic adjustment of the picture parameters ensures always reproducible test results, even for different test surfaces. The ecos Workflow SmartFocus technology guarantees sharp pictures – up to 60% faster than before.

 
    Test method switch in under a second

All standardised hardness testing methods have been saved in the software and can be called up at any time.
The correct indenter is automatically swivelled into position in combination with the 6-fold measurement turret. Subsequently, the test indentation can be measured correctly with a suitable lens. It is no longer necessary to change the indenter and lens. This saves on the complicated and time-consuming process of calibration and cuts out the possibility of human error by the user.

DuraScan 10 and 20.
Well equipped for everyday use.
 

Constant working height

Here, the test head moves instead of the specimen. This concept allows for a large test space at a constant working height and compact dimensions.
 
 
Intuitive operation

The hardness tester is controlled via the software ecos Workflow on a 8.4“ touch display.


 
 
    Easy contact: The interfaces

The most basic version also features all the standard PC interfaces providing an ideal basis for important network operation and data exportation.
 
    XY table or test anvil

The basic version provides a plane anvil with all the requirements for quick and easy individual tests. The DuraScan 20 sees the series expanded to include a manual XY-cross slide enabling reliable series measurement. Optional digital spindles are also available.
 
 
Important features at a glance.
User-friendliness and efficiency are our top priority.
 
    One lens – two magnifications

Intelligent interaction between the optical system and the software with 2-step-zoom has made it possible to double the magnification spectrum provided by the lens - while maintaining the same high standard of image quality. The unique 2-step zoom is a standard feature of the entire DuraScan series, from basic through to high-end. This saves using ad-ditional lenses and thus reduces expenditure.

 
    Create/load sample

The use of the sample mode reduces the effort for the operator and significantly increases safety and efficiency. All user-specific settings for hardness testing e.g. test method, lens, etc., are stored in the sample and can be loaded easily.
 

 
    Create/read QR-Code

With this new feature and the help of a USB handheld scanner, users can create and read QR-codes with all relevant hardness test settings such as for example test method, lens, etc. Therefore the degree of automation, safety and efficiency of the hardness testing process considerably increase. Incorrect entries of hardness test settings are a thing of the past. Additionally, the code can be printed directly on a docket or can be saved as an image file for the use in other programs. Since the code generated by this function already contains all test-related data, a network connection is not required.
 
 
The future of hardness testing software.

Innovative axes arrangement

The patented arrangement of the Z-axis as well as the Y-axis at the test head allows for a large test space and compact dimensions of the machine. Moreover, this design leads to optimal ergonomics for the user, which can be achieved thanks to the constant working height.
 
 
Intuitive operation

The hardness tester is controlled via the software ecos Workflow on an external PC.
 
 
Linear table versions 

The large traverse path distances of the linear tables facilitate optimum, fully automatic hardness testing. High resolution and almost no need for reverse rotation of spindles ensure a large degree of repetitive accuracy.

 
    Overview camera (DuraScan 70, 80)

The tried and trusted overview camera ensures the perfect overview, regardless of how complicated the test procedure or the number of test points and test rows. The combination of a macro lens and a superior quality lens facilitates view ranges of 60 µm to 52 mm. This unique technology allows an overall picture of the test subject (40 x 52 mm) and clearly displays every test run. A significant simplification of the task is provided by the addition of grid, support and reference lines including a display of the possibilities for moving edges. Furthermore, the picture can also be saved in the report.

 
    One lens – two magnifications

Intelligent interaction between the optical system and the software with 2-step-zoom has made it possible to double the magni-fication spectrum provided by the lens - while maintaining the same high standard of image quality. The unique 2-step zoom is a standard feature of the entire DuraScan series, from basic through to high-end. This saves using additional lenses and thus reduces expenditure.

    Hardness testing software that shows the way:

ecos Workflow technology shows the way ahead. Simple operation of even the most complex automation tasks is becoming increasingly important in the realm of hardness testing. The software takes over the task of directing the increasingly broad range of testing requirements and guarantees simple test object administration and lasting data security. The large proportion of software in the testing equipment allows ecos Workflow to make a decisive contribution to the performance capacity and quality of the overall product.
 






  Single measurement
This function allows you to set individual test points wherever
you like. The test measurement can be started using the surface
view or the overview.

Serial measurement
One or more test rows with positioning coordinates can be
recorded. The measuring process can be started in the surface
view or the overview.
 



CHD/Nht/Rht measurement
For the performance of test series for CHD/Nht/Rht data of
specimen according to standard. The test can be started directly
from the surface view or from the overview. Additional core
points of hardness can be defined separately for Nht measurements.

 

 

 
The Functions.
ecos Workflow: The Highlights.
 
 
    Easy generation of test series

The test point editor allows test points to be easily set up in a grid. It is also possible to set up each individual test point by entering coordinates. An even more elegant solution for serial measurement is provided by line and polygon line tools. Test series can be automatically adapted to suit work piece contours. Adhesion to standard defined test distances (i.e. point distance = 3 x diagonal) can also be done with the integrated tool.

 
    Single and multiple test samples

The standard version allows the specimen to be set up for several test series and be measured automatically. The functions required for this are clearly visible in a tool list. An optionally available software module ’ecos Workflow multiple specimen’ allows several specimen (i.e. 12 bedded specimen in two 6-fold-sample holders) each with several test series to be tested fully automatically.

 
    Optimise CHD serial testing

To ensure a maximum of accuracy with reduced testing time i.e. when determining hardness penetration depth (CHD, Nht, Rht), two features have been made standard for the software:

1. Automatic stop on reaching hardness limit
The limit is defined and the number of measuring is provided when the limit is reached. It is not necessary to know in advance how many indentations have to be made until the CHD is reached.

2. Subsequent addition of test points
The CHD value determined by the hardness threshold can be determined more accurately the more test points have been set up in this range. Subsequent insertion of test points around the established CHD value allows the provision of a more accurate result within a shorter test time frame.

 
Positioning with panorama function

The macro lens is designed for 52 x 40 mm test specimen size. This allows for the simple and transparent positioning of the test points and test series in real time. Moreover, the panorama function also allows larger test specimen to be completely included in the setting of test points. Specimen size is only limited by the movement distance of the slide. Specimen pictures for archives and records are set up for a 52 x 40 mm format.


 

The overview camera provides a panoramic overview of the work piece (variations 70 and 80).



 
Time saving pattern mode

Specimen that have already been measured are used as a guideline containing certain elements and basic settings for new specimen. The settings from the basic guideline are automatically used for new specimen. Guidelines are automatically generated for each measurement and archived specimen. Operators are recommended to use guideline settings when testing a series of identical parts, or when frequently testing parts that always conform to certain parameters, tolerance levels, test methods etc., or continually exhibit the same pattern of test results, but have varying descriptions. Conduct complex testing tasks with very few clicks.

 templates for new measurements


 

The rotation axis positions the test pattern on the work piece.




 
Modern data management with ecos Workflow.
Simple and secure handling of data.
 

 
 
 


Efficient data administration

The multitude of test values generated during a process of compre-hensive quality control requires a maximum of precision and availability from computerized QA systems.  In order to ensure complete docu-mentation and secure allocation of test results to the respective work piece, all DuraScan models offer a wide range of possibilities for data export and backup.
All test results can be stored directly on the hardness tester or can be exported in different formats such as .pdf, .xls (Excel) or .xml. The use of .xml data format allows for an easy access to existing Q-DAS systems.
 

 
    Export Editor

The Export Editor makes it significantly easier to export and save hardness testing results. The exported data cannot only be individually adjusted but also automatically stored after each measurement in a directory of your choice. The data can be exported in .csv, .txt, .xls or .xlsx data format, depending on the format needed for further processing. In addition, it is also possible to export images of the hardness indents in the worldwide common .jpg data format. Through this automatic export of data including images it is ensured, that all important information of a hardness measurement is backed up and can be easily tracked.
 
 

Create customized test reports.
All DuraScan models come standard with the ‘direct print’ function. This function allows you to make an immediate print-out of a test report on a printer connected to the system. For the DuraScan models 70 and 80 the overview camera enables you to integrate also a picture of the specimen (see example below). Moreover, the flexible and convenient form and report generator provides the possibility to generate easily customized reports for the documentation of test results.
 
 
 





  1. Inclusion of your corporate logo on the test report

2. Individual spaces for specimen description and test parameters

3. Other freely definable fields

4. Progression curves



5. Macro-view of specimen picture with test point labelling (only possible with overview camera)

6. Space for results tables, statistics etc.
