Nov. 24, 2015 – Mitutoyo’s HV-100 series Vickers hardness testing machines claim to be high-quality digital systems that offer complete control of test force for testing many workpieces.
“Measuring resolution of 0.1μm enables small indentations to be measured with high precision,” says the company. Automatic operation is available via AVPak software performed on a Windows PC. The HV series is available in four configurations: A, B, C, D models. The HV-110/120 – system A is equipped with a motorized test force selection and motorized turret mounts, and offers a list function for performing multi-point average hardness evaluations. Mitutoyo describes the HV-110/120 – system B, C, D as advanced models with additional productivity improvements. These testers feature AVPAK dedicated image analysis software which boast automatic indentation reading with “excellent automatic edge detection capability which eliminates reading variations and visual error.”
