Duramin-600 – Semi-Automatic Universal Tester

Robust and automatic universal hardness testing

Duramin-600 – Semi-Automatic Universal Tester

  • Suitable for Vickers, Knoop, Brinell, and Rockwell hardness testing
  • Available in three load ranges: 1.0-250 kgf, 3.0-750 kgf, 5.0-3,000 kgf
  • Robust load cell-based universal tester
  • Automatic six-position turret
  • Ring-light with dark field illumination for the testing of soft metals
  • Optional motorized Z-axis for large samples
  • Embedded PC, operated by mouse or touchscreen

Duramin-600 is designed to survive the toughest production environment. It is a universal hardness tester, operated by a robust touchscreen, and comes available in three load ranges and with an optional motorized Z-table for larger samples.

Perfected for the production environment

Designed to last, the Duramin-600 employs industry strength components from the 400 kg frame to the display.

Easy to operate

Simple clamping, combined with clean software and a touchscreen, ensure stress-free operating and result reporting.

High accuracy

The accurate and repeatable loading system based on load cell technology, combined with advanced software algorithms, ensures specific and repeatable image and hardness evaluation.

KEY FEATURES

  • Placeholder

    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.
