Our operators measure hardness on client's objects by using portable hardness tester EQUOTIP 3 of Swiss producer PROCEQ. Hardness tester, using dynamic method (DIN 50156, ASTM A956, PN-EN ISO 18265), determines hardness in HV, HB, HRC, HRB or HL scale. EQUOTIP 3 is appropriate for all metals, gives perfect information for material selection and exploitation surveys.
Portable hardness tests are performed on various welded constructions, machine parts made of forgings, castings.
They are used to verify the correctness of heat and thermo-chemical processes and welding.
Dynamic methods, such as the Leeb method, UCI, have limitations on the minimum volume and wall thickness of the tested object. In some cases, the minimum wall thickness is even several millimetres. Before ordering, consult with the Laboratory possibilities of testing of a specific object.
