In this article, we will provide you with the necessary information about this tool, the precision and affordable solution you have been looking for.

What is the BrinGen 3000 Series?

brinell hardness testerThe BrinGen 3000 Series is a state-of-the-art digital and automatic Brinell hardness tester, specifically designed to measure metal specimen resistance to indentation. By using a fixed force (load) applied by an indenter, our product determines the material’s hardness based on the size of the indentation – the smaller the indentation, the stronger the specimen. This system is particularly effective on surfaces too rough for other testing methods, aligning with ASTM E-10 standards.

The BrinGen – Brinell Hardness Tester offers a broad test load range from 62.5kgf to 3000kgf, giving it flexibility in meeting different testing needs. It is equipped with a closed-loop system that guarantees the highest load control accuracy, providing precise control over test force applications. Additionally, these standalone units can be easily upgraded to include the NG-Scope – Brinell Hardness Image Automatic Measuring system, which delivers the most accurate results through advanced optical analysis software.
