Understanding the different hardness testing types and systems can be useful to determine an optimal solution. Hardness testing functionality has evolved, and now users can dial into world-class-caliber instrumentation that more closely aligns with their applications at hand.
The Jominy end-quench test is used to measure the hardenability of a steel, which is a measure of the capacity of the steel to harden in depth under a given set of conditions. This article considers the basic concepts of hardenability and the Jominy test.
The world of materials-testing machines, specifically hardness-testing machines, would seem to be very targeted and well defined. Narrowing down what best suits your organization’s material, QC, budget and future needs will help when purchasing a hardness-testing machine.
AMH55 allows users to maximize their productivity and easily measure impressions on various surface conditions with accurate micro-/macro-indentation hardness testing available in fully automatic, semi-automatic and lite configurations.
