Material Thickness When Choosing a Rockwell Scale

Hardness Scales

Are you concerned about which Rockwell scale to use for thin materials? Of primary importance in Rockwell scale selection is material thickness. Since the 30 Rockwell scales are distinguished by total test force as well as the indenter type, a load or force that is excessive for a given material thickness will ultimately be influenced …

Hardness Conversions

Hardness Conversion

Need to produce Brinell hardness values with your Rockwell tester? Hardness conversion makes it possible. Depending on application and availability, different hardness test equipment is used, each presenting their results in a different hardness-scale (e.g., Vickers, Rockwell or Brinell). Too often there is a need to present the hardness results in a different scale than …
