HM 2000 micro hardness tester is a very versatile hardness testing device
with applications for paint and electroplated coatings, hard material DLC (Diamond
Like Carbon), PVD and CVD coatings, surgical implants, synthetics and rubber
hardness and material analysis.
Further important applications of this micro-hardness test method can be found
in quality control of hard material coatings on cutting and forming tools, on
galvanic coatings such as deposited nickel coatings, of gold coatings on contacts
for electrical components, of paint and lacquer coatings in the automotive industry,
synthetic foils and many more.
New benefit of the HM2000 microhardness tester
The HM 2000
micro hardness tester now has a maximium load of 2000mN, which helps greatly
with hardness tests or measurements on rough surfaces. The
HM 2000 micro hardness tester tester also has a load resolution of 0.04mN
and the hardness tester's automatic surface sensor eliminates many operator
Above all, The
HM 2000 micro hardness tester uses the load/indentation depth method, which
measures the force applied and indentation depth continuously. The microhardness
tester also measures the force as the indentor is removed, providing information
on the elastic and plastic properties of the material.
