novotest Combined Hardness Tester T-UD3

Combined Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-UD3

Combined Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-UD3 combines two methods of measuring hardness by an indirect method: Ultrasonic Contact Impedance (ASTM A1038) and Leeb (ASTM A956). This makes the device the most versatile portable device in the world.

The ability to connect both probes combines the advantages of both methods and providing users the opportunity to use the one that is most suitable for solving a specific task. The Combined Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-UD3 allows user to measure the hardness of any metals, parts of any shape and thickness, measure the hardness of the surface hardened layers and evaluate the tensile strength.

novotest UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U3

UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U3

The most popular portable hardness tester in the world is the Leeb hardness tester, however, there are tasks that using this method is very difficult or even impossible to solve. This is due to the physics of the method, which assumes the massiveness of the testing object, to ensure the inertness of the product when the Leeb’s impact body hits the surface with a given force. In order to solve a wider range of tasks on the rapid measurement of metal hardness, our company offers hardness testers that implement the method of ultrasonic contact impedance (UCI) in accordance with ASTM A1038. A vibrating rod (mechanical resonator) with a diamond tip acts as an indenter in these devices, when it indent into the material, the base frequency of the resonator changes, on the basis of which the hardness is calculated. This method has proven itself around the world and has been used in industry for over 50 years.

novotest Leeb Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-D3

Leeb Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-D3

The most popular method in the world for testing the hardness of metals using a portable hardness tester is the Leeb method (ASTM A956). The so-called dynamic method for determining hardness is widespread due to its ease of use. The user does not need to have special skills and or knowledge in the field of hardness measurement, to carry out the measurement, it is necessary to charge up the impact body of the device’s probe, install the probe on the tested surface, press the release button of the probe and the hardness value will be displayed on the device screen.

This method is recommended for large products, weighing from 5 kg and a thickness of 10 mm and more, however, observing certain requirements for fixing the product, it is possible to measure also small parts.

UCI Probe Test Stand NOVOTEST

NOVOTEST UCI probe Test Stand is used to measure the hardness of superthin sheet products. It can be used with any UСI probes which are equipped with NOVOTEST hardness testers. The point is that the thin wall of the product, when the UCI probe indenter is indented into it, does not provide sufficient impedance (it deforms under the load of the probe). In order to compensate for this deformation, this device is used.

Combined Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-UD2

The Combined Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-UD2 combines the advantages of two methods: UСI  (ASTM A1038) and Leeb (ASTM A956), which makes it possible to solve almost any task of operational hardness testing. With this device, the user will be able to measure the hardness of both a large products with a rough surface and a small samples of complex shape and with a thin wall.

This modification of the device has all functions for working with various materials and scales, which makes it an optimal device for non-destructive testing of metal hardness.

UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2

NOVOTEST T-U2 is the best price hardness tester in the world that works on UCI (Ultrasonic Contact Impedance) technology.

Unlike the Leeb hardness tester, such as the Leeb Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-D2 and the Leeb Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-D3, UCI hardness tester can also be used with small or thin-walled products, as well as parts of complex shape or with areas that need to be tested in hard-to-reach places.

The device with wide functionality and high reliability is UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2. This is a device that has been manufactured by our company for more than 10 years, and has established itself as the most optimal option in the world market for the combination of price – quality.

Leeb Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-D2

The Leeb Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-D2 correspond to to ASTM A956 is the most popular metal hardness testing method in the world, because of very easy to use and does not require special skills from the operator. The probe is mounted on the sample, and by pressing the release button, measurement is performed, and the hardness value is displayed on the device’s screen. The method works well with low alloy steels, stainless steels, as well as non-ferrous metals.

It is usually used for bulk products, without thorough surface preparation and is less sensitive to in-homogeneous or coarse-grained materials.

novotest Leeb Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-D2-R

Leeb Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-D2-R

Leeb Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-D2-R is a special version of the dynamic hardness tester with a miniature probe. The device has all the functions necessary for operation and allows to perform rapid measurements of the hardness of metals to the operator without experience with similar equipment.

It is usually used for bulk products, has low requirements for the quality of the testeded surface, grain size and uniformity of materials.
