Key features

  • Duramin 600 Simple testing

    Simple testing

    Duramin-600 is available with a six-position automatic turret facilitating exchange of up to three indenters and three objective lenses. The exchange of indenter and lens runs fully automatically in each model, helping to avoid calibration and potential human errors.
