Product Focus: BrinGen 3000 Series – Brinell Hardness Tester

BrinGen 3000

Brinell Hardness Testers are ideal for testing materials that have a structure that is too coarse or that have a surface that is too rough to be tested with other hardness scales, such as castings and forgings. Brinell Hardness testers are more tolerant of surface conditions due to the indenter size and the heavier forces applied, which allows the indentation to cover more area.

Aluminum and Copper are commonly tested by Brinell Testing Equipment of the lower forces while Steels and Cast Irons are tested with the higher forces .

The Brinell Hardness Testing System – BrinGen 3000 Series has an easy to use interface for converting your indentation diameter reading into a Brinell Hardness value directly from the instruments display, making the workflow much more streamlined. It also has the ability to test with a 2.5mm, 5mm or 10mm ball. The Brinell Hardness System – BrinGen 3000 is Load Cell Controlled for the highest precision in Load Control, and has 10 selectable loads ranging from 62.5kgf to 3000kgf.

This Brinell Hardness Tester can be paired with our BrinGen Scope which automatically measures the Brinell indentations through PC software. This prevents the operator from having to measure the indentation manually with the 20x scope. Instead, the BrinGen Scope works with CCD optics and software to capture an image and analyze the indentation.

Complying with ASTM E10 and IEN ISO 6506 for Brinell Testing, this product is a cost effective, digital laboratory solution for Brinell hardness testing.
