The hardness test determines the indentation resistance of materials by pressing a standardized test piece under specified conditions into the workpiece. The resulting mark in the surface gives information about the hardness of the material. For testing we use the established test methods by Vickers, Rockwell and Brinell.
For the shop test we use an Equtip harndess testing machine according to DIN 51225, which has been inspected and approved by the Material Testing Institute (MPA) in Dortmund according to DIN EN ISO 6507-2 (Vickers) for the testrange HV5 – HV50 class 1 and has been calibrated for tests according to Rockewell and Brinell.
