Key features

  • Ready to test: Vickers indenter and 3 lenses included in the basic package - no restrictions with test methods; all test load steps available and immediately useable.

  • Fully automatic test sequence: With electronic load application and an enclosed circuit.

  • 6-Fold tool-change turret: The 6-fold tool-change turret is standard and offers plenty of space for various test methods.

  • Optimum stop: Time-saving mode completes test series as soon as lower hardness limit has been undercut.

A simple start to fully-automated hardness testing

  • Largest test space: The sophisticated construction in anodized aluminium offers a large and well-arranged test space. The fully automatic XY-slide with a high- precision incremental measurement system can be equipped with an 1-fold sample holder. Beyond that, customer specific magazines can be managed and created in the software.
  • Revolutionary 3D concept: Intuitive, clearly structured and professional: Qpix Control2 heralds a new generation of hardness testing software developed to guarantee maximum user-friendliness.
  • Template function:
    • Types of measurement: CHD, NHD, SHD, row measurement, rapid single measurements
    • Template function ideal for repeat tests / components
    • Pull test series into the desired position
    • The row starting point is automatically determined by the Auto-Snap function
  • Protocol and data presentation: Wide range of structuration options for stored test item data. Adaptable content for export files and protocol content.
  • Modular expandable with sample image camera: Modular upgrade with sample image camera for the CHD Master possible at any time – as “CHD MASTER +” ready for new applications.

Professional applications with the CHD Master+

  • Sample image camera: Ultimate operating comfort provided by the USB 3.0 - 5 MP color camera system for capturing the whole sample and the perfect overview in test protocols.

  • Multiple sample testing and multi-bedding: With usage of Qness sample holders CHD Master+ variants enable tests on up to 8 embedded samples at a time – even in case several test pieces are embedded in one specimen.

  • 2D/3D mapping: Hardness distribution across partial segments or whole planes of test samples. Colourized representation in 2D and perspectively free twistable 3D on sample image.

  • Edge recognition(option): The function of the Qness software module Edge recognition is the automatic adaption of test row start points to the sample edge when using project and sample templates. The module increases the machines automation and is the perfect add-on feature to the standardized AutoSnap function.

  • From CHD to welding samples(option): Further to quick and simple CHD/NHD/SHD testing which the machine is basically designed for, it is optional also possible to upgrade the machine with features for welding samples and visual test point patterns for extra-large work pieces.
