We help you get better understanding at hardness testing: applications, case studies and technical articles from industry experts alike
Do you ever wonder what is required to execute a Leeb test? The Leeb hardness test is a unique measurement for metallic materials’ hardness. It uses a rebound off a sample with sufficient weight and toughness. Let’s learn more about the Leeb hardness test method and its requirements.
Static and dynamic hardness testing are the two categories of hardness testing based on the load application have their specific application. You should be sure that you are aware of these differences to take full advantage of these hardness testing methods when selecting the appropriate testing method when measuring your material hardness.
How well do you know the specimen requirements for conducting a Brinell hardness test? Many hardness testing professionals still fall short when it comes to test requirements, which may result in errors during the Brinell test. This article packs the information you need concerning the specimen requirements for the Brinell hardness testing method.
Does it ever cross your mind how the assessment of a material hardness test is interpreted? The Brinell hardness test records the diameter and depth of the indentation caused by a ball-shaped indenter, with the indenter pressed into a material’s surface. This is the guide on how to read and represent brinell hardness values.
The Vickers test often has strict specimen requirements due to the high sensitivity of the optical reading instrument and the need to get an accurate result. This article provides what you need to know for adequate preparation of your specimen for an accurate Vickers hardness test.
The Vickers hardness test is a very reliable method for measuring the physical properties of materials. It is a very popular method in engineering, industrial use, and the oil and gas industries. The article is all about the principle and application of Vickers hardness test.
Microhardness testing is a popular method for evaluating the hardness of materials. Many variables can play a role in the accuracy of your microhardness testing results. This article explores some of the common problems associated with microhardness testing.
How to get the accurate results from the Rockwell hardness testing? Many factors you should consider, such as your rockwell hardness tester itself, indenter, loading platform and specimen. The article discuss the specimen preparation and requirements for the Rockwell method.
