Hardness testing technologies

Back to overview

The backbone of any hardness testing machine is the machine base. This needs to be of a robust and rigid design for all test tasks (e.g. made of aluminium or cast iron) in order to ensure absolutely consistent test conditions across the entire range of test forces. In addition, design and modularity are nowadays becoming increasingly important and therefore need to be taken into account in the design of the machine base.
