Standard Configuration Includes: Vickers Hardness Tester, 10X Digital Micrometer eyepiece, 10X and 20X Objective Lenses, Vickers Diamond indenter, NIST Traceable Vickers Test Block, Motorized Turret, X-Y Testing Stage, 3-Stage Fixtures, Power Cable, Dust Proof Cover, Instruction Manual, Hardness Conversion Table, Certificate of Quality, Warranty Card and Accessory Case, CD with Image Analysis Software, Digital CCD Camera, USB Drive with Software and USB Data cable.

NG 5/10/30/50 CCD model can be upgraded to a Semi- or even a Fully-Automatic Hardness Testing System. The Fully-Automatic system has an XYZ stage. This allows the fully automatic system to offer an automatic focus feature. Therefore, after you position the samples and plot the path the unit will perform automatic test and measurement process of indentation, auto-focusing, measuring, and hardness curve plotting with a click of a button.

Motorized XY Stage

The Semi-automatic system only has XY stage movement, therefore requires manual focus work for each of the plotted indentations. Once the manual focus is completed measurement process of indentation, measuring, and hardness curve plotting is completed with a click of a button.
