Duramin-650 – Semi- and fully automatic universal tester

Versatile universal hardness testing that ensures repeatability over a wide load range

Duramin-650 – Semi- and fully automatic universal tester

  • Suitable for Vickers, Knoop, Brinell and Rockwell hardness testing
  • Available in three load ranges: 1-250 kgf, 3-750 kgf, 5-3000 kgf
  • Motorised test head
  • Motorised XY-stage
  • Automatic illumination
  • Anti-collision system
  • Overview camera

  • Embedded PC, operated by mouse or touch screen

Duramin-650 is the universal tester suited for laboratory use. Each model in the range has a motorised test head and turret, and is available either with a fixed anvil or with a motorised XY-stage and overview camera, primarily suitable for high volume testing. Duramin-650 is available in three load ranges.

Flexible testing

Due to the wide test load ranges possible, the Duramin-650 is suitable for many different applications that previously needed several individual macro indentation hardness testers.

Reliable precision

Based on load-cell technology, the Duramin-650 conforms to all standards while offering excellent accuracy and repeatability throughout the entire load range.

High capacity

Duramin-650 is optionally available with a motorised XY-stage for fully automatic testing of test series.

Key features

  • Duramin 650 Stable testing conditions

    Stable testing conditions

    The motorised test head, or V-concept, ensures rigid testing conditions without compromising on the testing height capacity. The sample remains at the same height to secure accurate and reproducible results regardless of the sample size and weight.

    Stable testing conditions
  • Duramin 650 Perfect working height

    Perfect working height

    The Duramin-650 automatically adjusts to the correct working height by moving the measurement turret down until it touches the samples surface.

    Perfect working height
  • Duramin 650 Automatic protection

    Automatic protection

    The machine automatically stops during a collision or any unexpected vibration or movements. This protects the indenters and lenses from being damaged and also provides optimal operator safety.

    Automatic protection
  • Duramin 650 Automatic exchange of indenter and lens

    Automatic exchange of indenter and lens

    Duramin-650 is available with a six-position automatic turret that facilitates the exchange of up to three indenters and three objective lenses. The exchange of indenter and lens runs fully automatically, hereby avoiding misalignment and operator errors.

  • Duramin 650 Simple test execution

    Simple test execution with overview camera

    The optional overview camera makes it easy to position the test point series across the sample and execute the test series with a few mouse clicks.

  • Duramin 650 Test point editor

    Optional test point editor

    Duramin-650 is also available with a built in test point editor to define and set-up of measurement lines for fully automatic testing.

  • Duramin 650 Relevant software

    Software modules for specific needs

    Application specific software modules are available for a variety of needs, e.g. weld measurement module, surface mapping, edge detection and Kc fracture toughness calculator.

  • Duramin 650 Load cell based

    Accuracy during load application

    Through eliminating the common over- and undershoot from dead weight systems, load-cell technology ensures the highest degree of accuracy and repeatability during load application. The absence of mechanical weights not only eliminates friction problems but also makes the equipment less sensitive to misalignment caused by vibrations. Combined with a motorised turret the entire measurement cycle of loading, indenting, unloading, focusing and evaluating is carried out extremely quickly.
