Ultimate Accuracy by High-Precision Load Cell Technology

Duramin-160 delivers even higher precision than required by standards. This Rockwell hardness testing machine is based on a load cell system, where test loads are applied via a closed loop control unit with a load cell, a DC motor, and electronic measurement. This way, you will never experience the over- and under-shoot that is common in deadweight systems, ensuring maximum repeatability and reproducibility.

Fully Automated Test Cycle Takes Reproducibility to a Maximum

The entire test cycle of applying load and evaluating hardness is fully automated. This improves reproducibility to a maximum, as operator influence is minimized, and it saves you time.

Create Immediate Reports with Intuitive Touchscreen for All User Levels

Duramin-160 displays data on the touchscreen from which you can easily generate complete reports with results, statistics, and customized comments. Export your data in various formats via a network or USB stick. All generated data is always accessible for review. As an optional feature, Duramin-160 is also compatible with Q-DAS software.

  • Different user profiles

    Create different user profiles to restrict or allow different privileges

    You can control the privileges of the users to ensure that the same settings are used for every measurement. The main profile ensures that only one super user controls the main settings.

  • Color Coded Limits

    Color-coded hardness limits for easy recognition of values within or outside your specified limits

    You will immediately know if your results are approved or not. If your hardness value is outside of the specified limits, it is displayed with the color red. If the hardness value is within the range of specified limits, it is displayed with the color green.

  • Irregular samples High precision load cell

    High-precision load cell delivers even higher precision than required by standards

    The advanced closed loop cell system ensures constant feedback and constant control of the load application to ensure the highest precision and repeatability.

  • Right Ergonomic motorized Zaxis

    Ergonomic, motorized Z-axis frees you from manual adjustment. Your state of health will thank you

    The Z-axis is of particular assistance if you perform many tests and want to relieve yourself or your co-worker from the repeating manual movement to position the hardness tester’s spindle. This also frees your hand for controlling the sample while positioning it.

  • Test area ilumination

    Test area illumination provides a clear view of the sample

    You are provided with a much better view of the test area by the test area illumination. This is a particular advantage when you do several tests on the same sample and want to make sure that you work with the correct gap between tests.

  • HBT og HVT

    Option to measure HVT and HBT for you who want the freedom to use other methods

    Duramin-160 will provide you with a Vickers or Brinell result, using depth measurement methods. A great advantage for you who occasionally use Vickers or Brinell as a testing method, but don’t need the degree of precision and don’t want to spend as much time as you would on a comprehensive Vickers or Brinell test. This is an optimal option for you who provide estimates on hardness in a production line.
