The HR-600 hardness tester from Mitutoyo America Corp. (Aurora, IL) combines Rockwell hardness testing and for Light Force Brinell testing in a single machine, expanding the range of available measurements. Key features:
Mitutoyo’s first hardness tester to be equipped with a moving head, which moves at a speed of 10 mm/s within a 210-mm range.
Table for mounting workpieces and head with vertical mobility.
Tables are bigger and have more depth, allowing large workpieces to be mounted and measured. Maximum load limit: 100 kg; depth (from indenter center): 220 mm.
Touch-enabled screens enable users to directly view results. Users can choose from five displays (standard operating, simple, multipoint test, list display [mean value] and list display [5-point display]) based on various views). Users select the hardness scale of their choice and statistical analysis features analyze multiple test results, streamlining the workflow and reducing measurement and analysis time.
AVPAK software enables smooth and efficient measurements. Using part programs, the software enables automated multipoint testing in the X-, Y- and Z-axis directions.
Supports special testing and offers supplemental add-ons, including PCs for remote operation software and V-anvils for round workpieces.
The HR-620 Type B tester with AVPAK can be combined with the Mitutoyo Form Eio software and a PLC to create a system that coordinates with robots. Users can automate the testing procedure, from mounting workpieces to sorting them according to test results.
