ZHV30/zwickiLine Vickers hardness testing machine

The fully automatic ZHV30/zwickiLine testing machine with closed-loop technology reduces testing costs and minimizes operator influence—your guarantee for efficient, cost-effective low-force hardness testing.
ZHV30/zwickiLine hardness tester to Vickers

Applications

  • Can be used for all optical hardness testing methods in the low-force range for single, series and multiple hardness traverse tests to the following standards:
  • Vickers hardness to EN ISO 6507
  • Knoop hardness to EN ISO 4545
  • Brinell hardness to EN ISO 6506
  • This hardness testing system is ideal for automated hardness testing to determine values for the following methods:
  • case hardening depth (CHD) as per EN ISO 2639
  • conventional depth of hardening after surface heating (DS) as per EN 10328
  • depth of hardening after nitriding (Nht) as per DIN 50190-3
  • weld seam tests on steel pipes as per EN 10208

The ZHV307zwickiLine hardness testing system covers the metals (steel producers and suppliers, hardening shops), automotive and aerospace industries, together with academia, government departments and agencies and medical engineering (ceramics and dental materials).

Choosing between testXpert and HD software as testing software for your ZHV30/zwickiLine hardness testing machine

Advantages of using testXpert

  • The fully automatic ZHV30/zwicki hardness testing system with closed-loop technology reduces testing costs and minimizes operator influence. A guarantee for efficient, cost-effective low-force hardness testing.
  • The hardness testing system has been designed as a ‘top loader’; the measuring unit is automatically lowered to the specimen. Test-area height can be varied as required.
  • The Xforce HP load cell and Zwick testControl measurement and control electronics guarantee fast, precise test-load application in the ranges HV0.1 to HV30 and HBW1/1 to HBW2.5/31.25.
  • The innovative lens mounting fixture for the indenters ensures smooth application of all test loads.
  • The measuring microscope employs GigE camera technology and is equipped with a motorized turret for the indenter and up to 4 lenses, allowing a wide range of applications to be covered.
  • Control of the hardness testing machine and evaluation of test data are handled by testXpert software. Test reports (with test parameters and test results) are generated automatically.
