NG-1000 Series

The NG-1000 - Micro Vickers and Knoop Hardness tester is the most advanced hardness tester for accurate measurements and ease of use. The NG-1000 - Micro Vickers and Knoop Hardness tester comes standard with a motorized turret and is available in three (3) different configurations to suit all requirements. The series includes the NG-1000 - Micro Vickers and Knoop Hardness tester AGEN - Analogue Vickers Hardness Tester, DGEN - Digital Vickers Hardness Tester and CCD - Digital Vickers Hardness Tester with CCD Optical Analysis Software.

The NG-1000 - Micro Vickers and Knoop Hardness testers are equipped with a large LCD display and a user friendly interface for controlling all aspects of your test. It features a built in printer to allow the operator to print and document the series of hardness readings. The motorized turret automatically controls the changing of the objective lenses and indenter positions for the quickest analysis. The loading and unloading of the test force is fully automated as well and is held for the specified dwell time (1-99 seconds).

Our most advanced NG-1000CCD - Micro Vickers and Knoop Hardness tester system includes a high quality CCD Camera and is packaged with our VickSoft Vickers Hardness Test Software. The software will use the indentation image from the CCD camera to detect your Vickers hardness value. Our user friendly VickSoft software allows you to categorize your hardness results by part number/IDs and can then be further exported into a testing report.

Every Macro Vickers Hardness tester comes standard with the automated turret. This feature is designed for ease of change of the objective lenses and the indenter. This in turn allows for a fast and simple sample analysis. The automation of the test force is implemented to conduct the load, dwell time and the release. After the test is conducted, the objective lens automatically returns to its initial focus state, above the indentation. This makes it easy to measure the diagonals of the indentation in order to find the Vickers Hardness value.
