Payment per hardness test result with no acquisition costs

The EMCO-TEST pay-per-indent offer provides an innovative billing model.*

*The pay-per-indent offer is only available in direct distribution areas.

EMCO-TEST pay-per-indent is a payment model in which only the hardness test indent is charged. There are no acquisition costs, no capital tie-up, no additional service or maintenance costs.

The EMCO-TEST hardness testing machine is installed on your premises, in the version you require (required test methods, degree of automation, etc.). The machine itself remains the property of EMCO-TEST.

Installation includes commissioning and operational training, annual maintenance and calibration, as well as provision of all the consumables (indenters, hardness reference blocks) for the defined test methods.

You are free to use the machines for the defined hardness testing tasks. Billing takes place monthly based on the number of hardness test indents.

The following contractual models are available:
