Motorised measurement probes have primarily been designed for measurements without an operator, stand or guidance aid, within a very narrow tolerance range. Hardness measurement consistency is ensured by the motorised measurement process. Motorised measurement probes operate with significantly lower test forces (1N, 3N, 8.6N) than manual measurement probes, thus making them ideal for delicate surfaces which cannot tolerate a lot of testing pressure.
The integrated motorised controls ensure that measurements are made with practically no influence from the operator and that the period for which the test load is in effect can be adjusted to between 1 and 99 seconds.
The special force application properties (freely selectable penetration time point with constant test force) means that the visual assessment of Vickers indentations can also be performed at a later point. The material’s hardness is tested using the UCI method.
Do you require probes with different dimensions or test loads? We can produce a custom-made probe to meet your needs - just get in contact.
Precision motorised measurement probes
All UCI measurement probes are characterised by high precision and can provide stable and informative measurements over a long period of time. The measurement system encompasses the entire hardness range of the traditional Vickers scale.
