EQUOSTAT Hardness Tester

Static Low-load Measurement based on the Rockwell Principle

Accurate, rapid, and reproduceable results from measurement of penetration depth under defined forces and therefore:

  • Independence of material (no choice of material curves necessary)
  • Independence of body dimensions and geometry
  • Measures from one side - no backing necessary

Excellent sensitivity through small penetration of a few um and therefore particularly suitable for:

  • Scratch-sensitive and polished surfaces
  • Thin parts, profiles and pipes with a wall thickness = 2 mm
  • Hardness profile in heat-affected zone of welding seams
