This handheld device allows the measure of hardness on small, large, flat, round, thin or thick workpieces. This rugged metal body unit is capable of testing softer metals such as copper and brass as well as the typical hard metals and alloys while adhering to the strict ASTM A1038-10 guidelines for portable hardness testing using UCI method. Checking coating hardness is also possible with this new portable hardness tester.
The Non-destructive feature allows accurate testing on delicate or finely finished surfaces without physical or structural damage to the operator's part, consequently saving cost and time for refinishing or replacing damaged part.
This new portable hardness tester can easily convert and be calibrated to all the popular hardness scales such as, HRC, HRB, HRN, HRT, HB, and HV. Output to PC via USB interface.
Also on display will be Phase II's enhanced line of portable hardness testers such as the new touch screen PHT-4500, as well as ultrasonic thickness gauges, surface roughness testers and coating thickness gauges.
