1 to 250 kgf

FH 1

The FH 1 is an advanced Tinius Olsen hardness testing instrument. Capable of meeting or exceeding the applicable ASTM, ISO-EN, DIN, JIS standards, and more.

Traditional hardness testing systems use dead weight mechanical designs or spring force mechanisms to apply force. Often times these mechanisms can cause inaccuracy's and/or wear over time. The FH 1 utilizes a closed loop load cell based technology with force feedback. This system constantly measures and controls the applied force on the indentation area.
