Hardness testing technologies

Back to overview

Many hardness testing machines used for simple test tasks, such as single measurements, are equipped with a handwheel for specimen infeed.

Handwheels are particularly suitable for small specimens. Moreover, the specimens can be clamped and unclamped very quickly. Due to the handwheel and the associated need for manual operation, this type of hardness tester can only be used as a standalone solution and cannot be integrated into production systems.
