Universal hardness tester for instrumented indentation tests

Instrumented indentation, also known as depth-sensing indentation or nano-indentation, is an increasingly popular method of measuring the mechanical response of a wide range of materials.

You've spent hours on the 'net researching the hardness testing system for your needs, you've perused the spec sheets and probably even spoken to a few distributors,   If only you could take a few of your samples and spend time making sure the kit will do exactly what you want. 

Hardness Test Block from UK Calibrations

UK Calibrations can now supply a full range of standard test blocks supplied with a UKAS accredited calibration certificate.  If your requirements are not covered by our standard range,  We can also supply custom made reference hardness blocks from material you supply.

Heat treating is a group of industrial and metalworking processes used to alter the physical, and sometimes chemical, properties of a material. The most common application is the heat treatment of metals. Heat treatment involves the use of heating (or chilling), normally to extreme temperatures, to achieve a specific result such as hardening or softening of a material.
