Hardness Meter Classification And Scope Of Use

- Jun 22, 2020-

The hardness tester is an instrument for measuring the hardness of an object. According to the complexity, it can be divided into two types: a simple hardness tester and a complex hardness tester. The hardness tester has different hardness testers according to different classifications.

1. Hardness tester by name

(1) Shore hardness tester: used to determine the Shore hardness value of ferrous and non-ferrous metals;

(2) Brinell hardness tester: used for measuring the Brinell hardness value of workpieces with higher hardness;

(3) Leeb hardness tester: used for all metals, convenient for difficult to enter or limited space testing sites;

(4) Shore hardness tester: used for measuring the Shore hardness value of rubber products;

(5) Rockwell hardness tester: Rockwell hardness value measurement for workpieces such as cast iron (6) Barcol hardness tester: used for measuring the Barcol hardness value of glass fiber reinforced plastic products.

(7) Vickers hardness tester: measurement of Vickers hardness value for thinner workpieces;

(8) Webster hardness tester: used for measuring the Vickers hardness value of aluminum alloy products;

2. Hardness testers are classified by type

(1) Multifunctional hardness tester;

(2) Benchtop hardness tester;

(3) Portable hardness tester (portable hardness tester): for installed mechanical or permanent assembly parts, etc.

(4) Ultrasonic hardness tester: used for molds and sheets; surface hardened teeth and gears, etc.

3. Hardness tester by material

(1) Rubber hardness tester: used to determine the hardness of vulcanized rubber and plastic products;

(2) Metal hardness tester for Rockwell hardness testing of hard alloys, carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron, non-ferrous metals, etc.;

(3) Fruit hardness tester: used to measure the hardness of various fruits such as apple, pear, watermelon and banana.
