The fully automatic ZHV30/zwicki-Line hardness testing machines from Zwick feature closed-loop technology. They offer reduced testing costs and require minimal operator influence, guaranteeing effective and cost-efficient low load hardness testing.
Zwixk ZHV30 hardness testers can be used for all optical hardness test methods in the low-force range for individual, series and multiple hardness traverse tests to the following standards: Vickers hardness acc. to EN ISO 6507, knoop hardness acc. to EN ISO 4545, brinell hardness acc. to EN ISO 6506.
These hardness testers are ideal for automated hardness testing to determine values for the following methods: Case hardening depth (CHD) to EN ISO 2639, effective hardening depth after surface heating (DS) to DIN EN 10328, nitriding depth (Nht) to DIN 50190-3 and weld seam tests on steel pipes to DIN EN 10208.
Zwick ZHV30 hardness testers feature:
- The hardness tester has been designed as a ‘top loader’ so that the measuring unit is automatically lowered to the specimen. The test area height can be varied as required.
- The measuring microscope features CCD camera technology and has a motorized turret for the indenter and up to 4 lenses, allowing a wide range of applications to be covered.
- Control of the hardness tester and evaluation of test data is via testXpert® software. Test reports (with test parameters and test results) are generated automatically.
