ecos™ III hardness test software

Next-level efficiency.

The most efficient hardness test software.

Our passion for perfecting testing software, which began with ecos Workflow, has reached new heights with the successor ecos™ III. The NEW ecos™ III hardness test software combines maximum efficiency, ease of use and perfect clarity. Inspired by years of experience with ecos Workflow, the ecos™ III represents a completely new development. The software is already available for selected machines.

Welcome to the world of ecos™ III

Our software is based on the latest AI technology and enables reliable and time-saving evaluation of indents. But what makes ecos ™ III truly unique it's about that III in the field of hardness testing machines is its ability to seamlessly continue your work even while the machine is still carrying out test jobs.

In a world in which data acquisition and processing are becoming increasingly complex, you stay on top of things. You can summarise test data into orders, for example to document the quality of components over a longer period of time or to structure the test data of groups of people. A multitude of helpful tools enables precise positioning of test points and test series. Thanks to the possibility of saving recurring test settings as a template and using them again flexibly, you increase your efficiency and precision to an unprecedented level.

ecos™ III – the future of hardness testing software is already a reality with us today. Increase your productivity, save valuable time and experience the revolution in hardness testing.

What makes our software so special?

Our software is based on three essential pillars.


Thanks to an intuitive operating structure with simple rules, quick familiarisation is no problem. Even complex and extensive test patterns can be defined and placed on the sample with just a few clicks.


With ecos™ III, clarity comes first. All test elements are distinctly divided into jobs and specimens. This keeps everything clear, even with large amounts of data, and allows test reports to be created for multiple specimens and trend analyses.


With ecos™ III you benefit from a well thought-out operating concept in which all the routines have been optimised. This cuts the operating time by up to 65%, as well as the number of staff required for the test.

The work area is divided into three sections:

1. Configure check

Create the elements for your specimens, such as test points and test series, in the respective order according to your specifications and place them on the panoramic image. Select the appropriate test specification (e.g. for CHD series), set the necessary parameters such as method, revaluations, test point pattern and limit hardness and place the elements on your specimens.

2. Perform check

Check your test settings such as the standard to be used or the test cycle, change the order of the specimens to be tested and start the test. Maintain an overview of the ongoing measurement and correct the evaluation during the measurement if necessary. Thanks to the use of reliable AI-based indentation detection, this will only be necessary very rarely.

3. Analyse results

Summarise the results of one or more samples of an order, create trend analyses, reports or export your data as xlsx or txt files. Design your test reports with the integrated and very easy-to-use Report Designer.
