Buehler Releases New Wilson RH2150 Rockwell Hardness Tester
Buehler is releasing the Wilson RH2150 Rockwell Hardness Tester during Wilson’s centennial anniversary. The tester features many user-friendly enhancements.
Buehler is excited to introduce its newest Rockwell Hardness Tester, the Wilson RH2150, which features easy programmability, advanced calculations and even verification reminders to ensure compliance. With the launch of the new Wilson RH2150, Buehler celebrates the Wilson brand’s centennial anniversary.
The RH2150 is available in two different sizes, with a vertical capacity of 10 inches (254 mm) or 14 inches (356 mm). Sheet metal casing and a load cell protection fully protect it from outside influences. Other new features include a clamping device attached to the actuator, extended scales, crash protection and a new user interface. Early user praise has focused on the ease of use, icon-based software interface, programmability and workflow automation, one button testing and available accessories.
“The RH2150 was tested for weeks and months in harsh workshop environments and the consistency of test results and intuitive testing controls is clearly standing out and is the key requirement for this type of hardness testing machine,” hardness product manager Matthias Pascher says.
The machine performs hardness testing according to the current Rockwell standards, as well as plastics and carbon testing scales and Brinell depth testing scales, all within the load range from 1 to 187.5 kgf. As a result, Buehler recommends the RH2150 for the manufacturing and heat treatment industries. The company also offers a wide array of testing scales suited for research labs and testing centers.
The user interface aligns with Buehler’s DiaMet hardness testing software – which the company promises makes it simple to learn and easy to use. An available package provides advanced features of DiaMet for the Wilson RH2150.
Other user benefits include an auto-stop clamping device, optional indenter extensions for hard-to-reach test locations, a removable operator panel, adjustable LED workspace illumination, a USB port and Rockwell Fast Mode.
Just because dial indicators have been around since the early 1900s, don't expect them to fade away with the last century. This tool's long-term popularity is well earned.
The uses of working gage blocks are as varied as the number of gage blocks in a large set. The working blocks have an intermediate grade and are often used in the inspection or calibration lab, but they may also be found on the shop floor.
While countersunk and chamfered holes are similar in appearance, functionally they are quite different. Consequently, different gages exist to serve these different functional requirements.
