AFFRI Metaltester MKII
Conform with standard ASTM B-724 - DIN 50157
MICROPROCESSOR CONTROLLED DIGITAL DUROMETER
With the METALTESTER portable durometer it is possible to perform quick and precise Rockwell, Brinell and Vickers hardness measurements as well as determine ultimate strength anywhere, inside or outside your production department. METALTESTER can be used to test almost all metals: chromed surfaces, nitrided surfaces, aluminum, brass, copper, bronze, metal wire and hard and soft steel starting from a thickness of 0.08 mm, A diamond indenter ensures precise hardness readings on all surfaces.
Three interchangeable test accessories allow the user to run tests on differently shaped samples or on finished items.
A variety of accessories to facilitate testing on small or oddly shaped items is available upon request.
METALTESTER’s limited weight and the compact size make it an extremely efficient durometer to test any surface, any large or unwieldy item or any already assembled product.
The narrow and elongated head is ideal to measure hard to reach surfaces such as the inner parts of castings or of finished housings.
It is extremely easy to use: simply choose the desired hardness scale, put the test probe on the surface and apply a light pressure to start the entire test cycle.
At the end of the test, the instrument lets out a sound signal and the result immediately appears on the wide graphic display. At this point METALTESTER is once again ready for a new measurement. It’s that easy!
Data simultaneously shown on the LCD graphic display: detected values in various simultaneous scales, average of the values with automatic updating, battery level, findings according to the tolerance limits expressed both numerically and graphically, programmable test preload and load timer, sound signal to indicate the end of the cycle.
It is also possible to display the temperature and the date, to set data memory up to 3500 values and various files with alphanumerical codes, to display statistics and Gauss diagram.
Data output, to connect a printer or a computer, with an RS232C connection or USB connection upon request.
