Vickers, Rockwell and Brinell.

Usually the examinations take place on metallographic prepared samples. Hardness test with metals.

The Rockwell method is preferably used for very hard materials or heat treatment conditions, e. The typical load range extends from 0. By these small impressions also very close contiguous impressions can be realized e. Hardness mapping are often applied to verify welded joints.

Particularly in the case of multi-layered welds, it is thus possible to identify specific areas, in which the heat input has significantly affected the microstructure, and as consequence affects the quality of the weld joint. This feature is used to detect even the smallest local hardness increase in large samples.

In the tests hard metal balls with different diameters 1, 2. Because of this kind of determination the hardness cin can be read from a scale without optical measurement devices and the requirements regarding surface quality are lower.

Via these measurements next to the hardness difference compared to the core hardness also the depth can be determined. The GWP covers with their equipment park the typical testing areas.


A determination of the hardniss is carried out, depending on the selected test load, on the by plastic deformation caused dent by average calculation of the diagonal. The GWP is equipped with the most modern hardness test devices, which offer the possibilities of manual, semiautomatic and fully automatic evaluation.

GWP: Hardness test

The software automatically assigns colors for the minimum and maximum hardness values. From the hardness test procedures, the Vickers method is the most universally applicable test. Thus, the hardness idn an essential ingredient of component calculations, drawing specifications or in the characterization of materials. Starting from very soft non-ferrous metals such as Pb or Cu, over surface layer hardened steels up to very hard coatings such as tungsten carbide.

Thermal and mechanical stress can induce microstructural changes in materials, which can be detected with a hardness test.

For this purpose several Vickers-test indentations are set and measured in defined intervals to the component edge. These apply to the expected hardness, ball diameter and test load. Hardness mapping are performed according to Vickers. Also in 05190 field of damage investigation hardness profile measurements are used, to e. Filling the sample with indents hardness mapping can be useful for case-hardened parts or to check sample homogeneity.

Surface layer hardenings are common methods for improving the wear resistance of components.

In contrast to the Vickers and Brinell method, the hardness is determined not by the lasting dent diagonal but by the depth of penetration. Modern metal materials offer a very wide range of different djn purposes.

Our according to DIN EN ISO accredited lab offers the usual stationary methods of hardness testing, which are used in the field of metallic materials: Home Lab Services Material testing Hardness test.


Hereby a pyramidal diamond indenter is pressed with a defined stress in the workpiece.

Hardness test

Furthermore it offers the possibility to determine values, which are equivalent compared to the traditional methods. Instrumented penetration testing universal hardness test.

For the characterization of different materials sin hardness test offers a very wide spectrum of possibilities. With the micro dn test usually load ranges of 1 to g e. For the examination next to metallographic investigations also hardness profiles are used. These evaluations lead to conclusions about e. The Brinell hardness test is used for soft to medium hard metals, and very porous and inhomogeneous materials such as cast or light metal alloys.

Similar to the Vickers method the calculation of the hardness is based on the ratio of the average diagonal diameter for the used ball and the test load.

Different materials like plastics, metals, coatings and ceramics can be tested. The instrumented penetration testing for the determination of hardness and other material parameter also universal hardness or hardness martens also offers the possibility to determine and estimate the elastic distortion of materials in contrast to the classical methods like Rockwell and Vickers.

Due to different hardness and processing methods 5019 testing methods can be differed:
