Starrett hardness testers

The L.S. Starrett Co. has expanded its series of benchtop hardness testers with seven Rockwell systems, eight Vickers systems and one Brinell system.

The Rockwell additions include two regular Rockwell digital testers, two superficial Rockwell testers (one dial and one digital), two twin Rockwell-superficial testers (one dial and one digital), and two Twin Rockwell-Superficial testers with a dolphin-nose design. The dolphin-nose systems are fully automated with output to a PC and the capability of measuring 30 different Rockwell scales.

The new Vickers hardness testers include six micro Vickers testers for handling a testing range of 1HV to 2967HC and eight test forces; two with Digicam Basic Manual software for manually selecting edges of indentation; two with Digicam Auto software for automatically detecting edges of indentation; and two testers with Auto Turret Control (one with Basic software, one with Auto software). In addition, there are two macro Vickers testers for handling up to 17 test forces; one features Digicam Basic Manual software and one featuring Digicam Automatic Software.

The Starrett digital Brinell hardness tester features automatic loading and can handle 10 scales.

  • Surface Texture From Ra to Rz

    The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.
