Since 1936, Buehler has been a leader in the engineering and design of metallographic equipment and since 2012, Buehler also became the manufacturer of the Wilson brand of Hardness Testers. Buehler is celebrating the 100-year anniversary of Wilson this year and with that we are excited to host the first ever Wilson Hardness Days. The Hardness Day celebration will occur on November 4-5, 2020 and will include many hardness testing topics.
Dr. Mike Keeble, US Labs and Technology Manager and Dr. Evans Mogire, EU Labs and Technology Manager have planned educational programs for both beginners and experienced technicians.
Dr. Keeble, “As we celebrate Wilson, the hardness brand within Buehler, we want to mark this year with something special. Many customers can’t travel to trade shows or our Solutions Centers to see the machines in action, so along with many other activities we decided to bring the lab to them with technical and educational webinars and now the Hardness Days event.”
Dr. Evans adds, “Since we wanted to make this available to as many customers as possible, we decided to offer the program during the morning hours in the United States, which will allow our European customers to join us as well. We are delighted to put this on and hope that this becomes a valuable resource for all industries that include hardness testing in their quality control programs.”
