Qualitest presents the Handy Esatest portable hardness tester, the simplest operation equipment for hardness measuring in difficult points, by using electrical resistance. This product has been designed as a response to previously unresolved problems in hardness testing, particularly for testing in places that were inaccessible until now.
Thanks to a new, patented system of impression reading, the Handy Esatest requires neither optical reading of the impression nor measuring of penetration depth. It can perform testing in all positions with minimum difficulty and without special stability. This solution is exceptionally useful for testing superficially treated specimens. It allows a quick evaluation of the depth of the superficial treatment and possible alteration of ground parts. In addition, readings can be provided on the display in Vickers, Rockwell C and other scales upon request. This solution is exceptionally useful for testing superficially treated specimens. This new principle of hardness measuring permits testing in the most difficult or previously inaccessible locations. The wing of a supersonic plane, the wishbone of a Formula One race car, a turbine blade and a wheel joint are only some of the “difficult” applications that the Handy Esatest can handle, issuing data with a detailed comp arative diagram.
