Technical Data
  • This equipment is used to determine the Rockwell hardness of steel bottle after heat treatment. It can remove the oxidation-layer on the surface of work piece, finish Rockwell hardness test and convert the Rockwell hardness to other scales automatically. The specially designed software can be used for storage, statistic, edit, analysis of the testing data. 


    Main features

    Automatically remove the oxidation-layer on the surface of work piece

    ★ The surface removing depth is adjustable

    ★ The upper computer PC controls the lower computer PLC / single chip

    ★ Test force closed loop control

    ★ The measuring head can move upwards and downwards, clamp the work piece and finish the hardness test automatically

    ★ High precision grating displacement measuring system

    ★ Double display screens, powerful software function (data processing, hardness conversion etc.)

    ★ Precision conforms to GB/T230.2, ISO 6508-2 and ASTM E18

  • Application range:

    This equipment is mainly used to determine the Rockwell hardness of work pieces like steel pipe, pressure vessel and drill pipe etc. It is also suitable for the hardness test of other cylinder type or plane type parts.
