Duramin-4 – Manual Micro and Micro/Macro Hardness Tester
- Suitable for Vickers, Knoop, and Brinell hardness testing
- Available in two load ranges:
- Automatic six-position turret
- Manual XY-stage and Z-axis
- Manual indent evaluation via an eyepiece
This entry-level range of microhardness testers primarily targets Vickers testing, but can also be used for Knoop and Brinell testing. The Duramin-4 testers are equipped with a combination of manual and automatic features to ensure easy operation. Duramin-4 is available in two load ranges; 10 gf – 2.0 kgf and 1.0 kgf – 62.5 kgf.
Accuracy and repeatability
Advanced load cell technology ensures that the Duramin-4 conforms to all operating standards, while offering consistent repeatability throughout the entire load range.
The display unit combines a touchscreen with a simple user interface, designed to be easy to use, yet robust enough to withstand the toughest production environment. The hardness evaluation takes place manually via an eyepiece, where the measurement lines are simply positioned around the indent.
Duramin-4 is ideal for use as a dedicated Vickers single task tester, both in a laboratory (M1) or more production-focused (M2) environment.
