● The micro hardness testing of materials allows for the determination of the hardness of small or thin specimens and small areas of larger specimens, Micro hardness testing is commonly used to determine characteristics of thin sheets, foils, fine wire, epoxies, paints, etc. and is often employed in R&D applications.

● Micro hardness is especially useful in determining hardness variations, caused by hardening, quenching, plating, fabrication, welding or annealing, bonding, etc. Micro hardness testing can be accurately employed using loads as slight as ten grams, less and more in certain situations.

●Optional Vickers hardness testing software is available for CDH (Carburized layer depth)measurement.

Application: -

◆ Testing very thin materials like foils, thin pieces, coatings layers, eetc.

◆ Measuring hardness of the surface of a part, small parts or small areas.

◆ Measuring individual micro-structures.

◆ Measuring the depth of case hardening by sectioning a part and making a series of indentations to describe a profile of the change in hardness.
