HM100 Basic Micro-Hardness Tester

The HM-100 Micro-Vickers hardness tester now has a newly designed indenter-objective turret and control unit to expand the measurement application range. The new turret has three objective mounts and, by using the calibration function, all three objectives can be used for indentation measurement. For easy setup of Knoop hardness measurement, the turret has a dedicated mount for a Knoop indenter. The new separate control unit allows a choice of two types of display.
  • A wide range of test force from .09807 to 9.807N (10gf to 1000gf) is available for measuring a various type of specimens. The load duration can be set in 1 sec increments between 5 and 99 sec. The minimum reading of indentation is 0.01μm and allows small indentations to be measured with high precision.
  • Up to 3 Objective lenses and 1 or 2 indenters can be mounted on manual or motorized turret.
  • Select options for eyepiece measurement or several CCTV Measuring Options.
  • Models for manual control through highly automated control.
