FH 8

    The FH-8 series is a universal testing machine capable of Rockwell, Superficial Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers, and Knoop. The FH-008 offers a superior electronically controlled, closed loop system to achieve accuracy, reliability, and repeat ability through the testing process.

    The innovative Horizon software allows file storing, test program setting and storing, image zoom, auto focus, limit settings, conversions to other hardness scales, system setup and (remote) control, pattern testing (CHD/Nht/Rht) to ensure high reproducibility of test results and limits operator error and interpretation.

    The tester has a 6 position turret which can be customized by using different indentors, objectives, stages or vision systems, meeting your particular request and budget. The FH-8 series meets all applicable EN, ISO and ASTM standards.
