ONE INPUT FOR THE ENTIRE TEST CYCLE
The hardness tester’s head moves down until contact is made, clamps the piece, applies the force and makes the indentation. The software will move to the camera view mode where the indentation is automatically measured.
CLOSED LOOP TECHNOLOGY (PAT. AFFRI)
Closed loop load cells control load forces with a frequency of 1 khz, assuring perfect linearity in every range. Results are not affected by any structural deflection, misalignment or vibration.
REPEATABILITY & REPRODUCIBILITY
Accurate measurements on the first test, even in extreme conditions, eliminates the need for repeated tests. The R&R data is at the top of its class.
CLAMPING SYSTEM (PAT. AFFRI)
Secure contact with the specimen is always maintained, even in the unlikely event of any specimen movement during the operation cycle. The clamping system assures complete stability of any test piece throughout the test cycle, even if it's oiled, rusty or dirty.
MOVABLE TESTING HEAD
Automatic movements with automatic stop when contact is made. Total of 500 mm of motorized vertical stroke. The approach of the head moving to the piece as opposed to the piece moving to the head allows for more accurate, stable and safe measurements.
The wide work table base is capable of bearing masses beyond 3000 kg and special fixtures or anviling. Hardness measurements on bulky and irregular test pieces which cannot be easily reached by the regular bench hardness testers.
MOTORIZED X-Y TABLE
For automatic multi-indentation measurement. The user can program and set the number of indentations to be performed and the related movement of the X/Y table before each indent.
Multiples slots for different ball indenters, magnification lenses and even a milling surface preparation tool. Auto-rotating and tool switching for a completely automatic single or multi indentation measurement cycle.
The Auto Focus performs an automatic focus adjustment for the selected optic with precise positioning at any magnification. This system reduces reading time while also assuring high reading accuracy.
Integral 1 can be remotely connected to AFFRI Engineers from anywhere in the world. Our experts can diagnose any technical issues, provide additional operator training and update the software.
The software controls the whole instrument avoiding setting errors or operators mistakes:
Setup the hardness test scales, the load time, the properties of the camera, the test method standards and the conversion scales.
Manage the instrument tools and check if the installed tool is correct for the selected hardness test method.
Lists all of the readings done and their associated image. Chart the results and statistics highlighted according to their tolerance values (LOW, OK, HIGH).
