- High efficiency
- Fast and reliable results
- Choice of test methods
- Analog display
The N3A bench top Rockwell hardness tester gives high efficiency and cost-effective operation, with fast and reliable measurements. The tester is targeted for basic Rockwell measurements, but can also be used for Vickers depth difference measurement (HVT), Brinell depth difference measurements (HBT), and plastics testing. The N3A allows for a direct readout on an analog dial gauge and features loads and indenters that can be individually adapted to suit particular requirements.
Easy to use
Loading is easily applied by means of a lever for pre-load, main load, second pre-load, and return to the initial position. The hardness value can be clearly seen on the dial gauge.
The hardness readings are directly displayed on an analog dial gauge. Based on the test method selected, there are three colored scales printed on the dial gauge displaying the corresponding hardness values of the test carried out – all fully according to norms.
The N3A can be configured with a number of pre-defined test loads to save time and avoid error. The basic test unit comes with one test load, for example 150 kgf, while the adjustable test unit has three built-in test loads: 588, 980 and 1,470 N (60, 100 and 150 kgf), for example.
KEY FEATURES THAT ENSURE CORRECT AND FAST TESTING PROCEDURES
Wide range of test loads
The 13 test loads range from 49 to 1837.5 N (5.0 to 187.5 kgf). The testers are designed for basic Rockwell measurements, but are also capable of testing Vickers depth difference measurement (HVT), Brinell depth difference measurements (HBT), and plastics testing.
Wide range of test loads
All methods comply with the relevant international standards: • EN ISO 6508 and ASTM E18 for Rockwell and Superficial Rockwell • ISO 2039-1 for Ball Indentation Hardness (Plastics Testing) • HVT and HBT for non-standardized Test Methods
