A study shows an operator time savings of 86% for making and measuring indents in three locations of crank pins and journals when using automation compared to manual testing. There was less part manipulation, fewer errors in data transcription and lower variability between operators performing tests. Click here to view the full article.

In the highly competitive cutting blades industry, it is vital for the blade to have sufficient hardness to retain an edge, while too hard can cause brittle failure. When hardened materials are ground, residual heat may alter the microstructure and soften the blade edge. Testing the hardness of the cutting blades becomes challenging as indents […]
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 […]
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 […]
