Lab-friendly functions make FM Series Microhardness Testers ideal for materials labs.

With the Future-Tech FM-700 one may execute measurements of hardness by means of Vickers method: HV0,01 ÷HV1 according to PN-EN ISO 6507-1.

The device is used mostly for measurement of hardness distribution according to any measurement track. In this manner one may determine inter alia depth of hardened or softened layer, or by means of embedded metallographic microscope effect measurements of hardness of specific structural phases or segregation zones with indenter load: 98.07 ÷ 9807mN.

Device facilitates photographic documentation along with imaging of indentation. Measurement of hardness distribution may be effected automatically or manually.

Device displays result of hardness measurement by means of Vickers method (HV) with a possibility of recalculation into any hardness units: HB, HRC, HRA, HRD, HK, HR15T etc. according to SEA (J-417b), ASTM E-140 and JIS.

Basic scope of the offered tests by  means of microhardness testing machine  Future-Tech FM-700:

  • Measurement of hardness by means of Vickers method: HV0,01 ÷HV1 according to PN-EN ISO 6507-1
  • Distribution of hardness as per any measurement line,
  • Measurement of microhardness of specific structural phase,
  • Measurement of hardened layer depth,
  • Assessment of welded joint by means of measurement of hardness on cross section
