Universal Metal Testing Solution: Brinell Hardness Tester – BrinGen 3000

The universal Brinell Hardness Tester is a BrinGen 3000. Brinell hardness testing supports industrial manufacturing processes. Designed to meet the demand for laboratory metals testing on-site, the BrinGen 3000 is a Brinell hardness testing unit supplies maximum fixed force load against a specimen.

Brinell Hardness Test Evolution
First used as a standardized hardness test at the turn of the 20th century in Sweden for testing of steel and other alloy metallurgy and engineering applications, the Brinell Hardess Test has since become an international standard. Brinell Hardness Testing calculates permanent change of metal specimens under force, using a tungsten carbide ball indenter.

Ratio of indentation size to strength indicates resistance of material to permanent deformation required to meet specifications of industrial manufacture product creation. The smaller the indentation the stronger the specimen, or hardness value. Introduction of digitized Brinell hardness testing method in the BrinGen 3000, provides industrial testers with the capability to substitute other testing methods with the Brinell Hardness Test.

BrinGen 3000 Hardness Testing Solution
The BrinGen 3000 Brinell Hardness Tester conforms to International Standards Organization (ISO) ASTM E-10 standards to industrial testing. Brinell hardness testing of surface materials meets the criteria to surface testing of metals not measured by any other method. Brinell test loads range from 62.5kgf to 3000kfg. BrinGen 3000 Series testing equipment is a closed loop system. The closed loop system provides the highest accuracy load control and test force application on the market.

NextGen Material Testing, Inc.
