Advanced Micro-Hardness Testing

Wilson VH1102 and VH1202; Introduced by Buehler. The instruments feature deadweight loads from 10 g up to 2 kg and nine different, automatically selectable loading stages. The VH1102 model is equipped with a turret providing four positions, including an indenter for Knoop or Vickers and two standard objectives for 10x and 50x magnification at normal working distance. The VH1202 model is equipped with a six-position turret, including two indenters for both Knoop and Vickers, and an additional objective with 5x magnification at long working distance.

The Wilson VH1102 and VH1202 introduced by Buehler offer a flexible, cost-efficient and reliable solution for Knoop and Vickers micro-hardness testing without any user intervention with high precision and repeatability within a minimum of time.

Multi-LED, Broad-Beam Inspection Lamps for FPT and MPT

For nondestructive testing that examines the structural integrity, safety and reliability in aircraft, powerful Spectroline QUADRAN 365 S-Series multi-LED, broad-beam UV-A (365 nm) inspection lamps from Spectronics meet ASTM UV-A intensity and wavelength specifications for FPT and MPT. To address aerospace concerns, these lamps are “tuned” to a maximum UV-A intensity of 4,500 µW/cm² at 15 in.
QUADRAN 365 S-Series UV-A (365 nm) lamps from Spectronics are specially designed to meet ASTM UV-A intensity and wavelength specifications.

Infrared Vision Sensor for Inspection Prevents the Need for Shielding

The BVS sensor light is invisible to the human eye and removes intrusive flickering to the operator.
The BVS vision sensor from Balluff uses built-in infrared lighting with an integrated daylight filter for efficient inspection, bar code and text reading processes.
