Vickers Hardness Testing and the NG1000 Hardness Tester

Vickers Hardness Testing System is one of the quality control measurements carried out in a laboratory. It measures the mean pressure a material will support and is vital in determining a material’s strength and its ability to perform under pressure and withstand common stresses.

The NG-1000 Micro Vickers Hardness Tester and Macro Vickers Hardness Tester

Micro Vickers hardness testing and/or Macro Vickers hardness testing is one of the most reliable means of making this determination. It includes the smallest and highest hardness values in one scale. It uses a pyramidal-shaped diamond penetrator to indent the material being tested. The test results in a measured depth within a certain period of time and test load. The Micro Vickers hardness testing system and Macro Vickers hardness testing system is used on metals, polymers, and some ceramics. It is also very useful when measuring thin materials and small areas. The prepared sample needs to be smooth and small enough to fit into the tester. An example of its use in quality assurance is the testing of welded joints whose quality can be determined, in part, by testing the welded area and the original metal.

The NG-1000 CCD – Optical Software Measuring System

In the world of Micro Vickers Tester manufacturing and Macro Vickers Tester manufacturing, NG 1000 and NG 5000 Vickers Testers are one of the best machines available to perform this test. As noted in the Vickers Hardness Tester website, it is the only product to receive a five-out-of-five star rating. It has the highest dwell time, which relates to the length of time the surface is tested for, and includes a large screen for ease of use. It includes a NIST traceable block that ensures accuracy and integrity and a CCD camera that, in conjunction with the VickSoft Vickers Hardness Test Software, determines the Vickers hardness value. It also comes with a five-year warranty.
