Automatic and Interactive Image Analysis Software for Brinell-Vicker-knoop Macro and Microhardness Test.
“Hardness Pro” is designed for operation under windows 8 and windows 10 and can interface with office spreadsheet application.
Navigation within “Hardness Pro” Software is made easy by its clean design and is supported by simple intuitive gestures. Designed for touch panel use. APso with an entirely new look and feel.
The Software is simple but high definition testing provides accurate, reproducible test results in the macro and micro ranges.

Features

  • Automatic or Interactive.
  • Manual measurement mode on live image or acquired image.
  • Automatic calculation of the best circumference that minimizes the average quadratic error with the 90 points found.
  • Image acquisition in high resolution multi document environment with 64-bit Colors with all operating systems like windows 8 and windows 10.
  • In the event, that the automatic measurement fails, will offered the possibility to manually measure through the acquisition of three points in Brinell, D1 and D2 in Vicker and Simple L in Knoop.
  • Accuracy of the measured data us up to 0.001µm.
  • Multifield study is available.
  • The Software meets all requirements to ASTM E 384, ISO 6507 and ISO 4545.
  • Improvement in Image processing performance has improved the indentation measurement of function.
  • Case Hardness depth (CHD) measurement is automatic.

A common application of hardness testing is the evaluation of the hardness depth of the Surface-hardened steel. This is done by performing a series of hardness impression from the edge of the cross sectioned sample toward the center. The hardness progression is plotted on a graph, and the distance from the surface to the so-called Hardness Limit (HL) is calculated.
