Hardness tester HPO-250/HT is intended for measurement of hardness with the Vickers method according to standard STN EN ISO 6507 and the Brinell method according to standard EN ISO 6506. The device is intended to measure of metal hardness and non-ferrous metals hardness in workshop spaces.

Hardness tester serves to measure the hardness of materials with the method Vickers (HV5 - HV120) and the method Brinell with the use of ball ø 2.5 mm, ø 5 mm for load (15.625 - 250) kg.

After starting the measurement, the mechanism of the device will be set to the position with the indenter and after finishing the measuring cycle, the mechanism will be set to the position with the objective. The created indent will then appear on visual field of the focusing screen. The indents are then evaluated by using digital device of electronics.
