Hardness Tester Accessories

Hardness Testing Accessories

Many workpieces require special considerations during hardness testing in order to ensure correct method application and reproducible results.

  • High precision
  • Speed
  • Safety

Struers offers a wide range of hardness testing accessories

Specimen holders ensure the integrity of the workpiece, while clamping, vices, and jaws ensure stable and safe positioning of the workpiece. A choice of indenters for Vickers, Knoop, Brinell, and Rockwell gives you a greater choice of methods, while anvils and clamping devices enable a variety of sample geometries and applications.

The correct choice of objective lens is important in order to obtain optimally sized Vickers, Knoop, and Brinell indents on the screen. The selection of objective lenses depends on the material hardness and the test method used. Other accessories include nose cones, carbide and steel balls, and spring levers and gauges for portable testers.

You can choose from a wide selection of accessories.

  • Specimen holders
  • Indenters
  • Vices and jaws
  • Test blocks
  • Objective lenses
  • Anvils

Hardness testing test blocks

Test blocks

Certified test blocks for Vickers, Knoop, Brinell, and Rockwell.

  • Available in steel and aluminum.

Hardness testing specimen holders

Specimen holders

For micro hardness testing of mounted samples.

  • Holders for single mounts and up to six mounts.
  • Available for mounts 25/30/40/50 mm, 1.0"/1.25"/1.5"/1.5".

Hardness testing vices and jaws

Vices and jaws

If you cannot mount your sample and/or it has a particular geometry, you can use one of the vices or jaws available.

Harness testing anvils

Anvils

A wide variety support anvils and clamping devices to suit different sample geometries and applications.

  • For optimal support of flat, round, and cylindrical samples.
  • Flat anvils up to 600 x 400 mm.
  • V-anvils for direct testing on cylindrical and round samples up to 250 mm dia. (10" dia.)

Hardness testing indenters

Indenters

Indenters for Vickers, Knoop, Brinell, Rockwell.

  • Certified and uncertified.
  • Some indenters available with exchangeable balls (Brinell, Rockwell).

Hardness testing objective lenses

Objective lenses

In order to obtain optimally sized Vickers, Knoop, and Brinell indents on the screen, it is important that suitable objectives lenses are chosen.

The selection of objective lenses depends on the material hardness and the test method used.
