A unique high temperature indenter that can calculate hardness at various temperature under vacuum or inert gas atmosphere
- Upto 1600C
- High Vacuum
- Insitu imaging
- Vicker's, Rockwell
- Main Features
High temperature microindentation system is an unique tester capable of measuring high temperature hardness of metal, alloys, ceramics, powder metallurgy, glass, thin films etc in vacuum or inert environment such as helium, argon or nitrogen from ambient to 1600oC.
The low noise pumps, fully automated stages, fine finish on parts and components, low power consumption, small foot print, built in camera, active lighting etc. makes the indentor a potent tool in hands of the user and is suited or both research and manufacturing environment.
Low power heaters that heats both indenter and specimen to prevent thermal gradient at the point of testing. Chamber temperature is measured at multiple points in the chamber and under the sample to effectively monitor insitu temperature. Water cooled specimen stage provides effective heat isolation system and is manipulated through a dynamic vacuum seal capable of xy and angular movement.
Inline imaging allows to calculate and take images of indents without taking the sample out of the tool/controlled environment condition.
