HARTIP 3000 is an advanced hand-held digital metal hardness tester with characters of high accuracy, wide measuring range and easy operation. It is suitable for testing the hardness of all metals especially on site for large structure/assembled components. Which is widely used in the industry of power, petro chemistry, air space, vehicle, machine and so on. 

Measuring method

       The measuring principle of HARTIP series hardness testers is defined as “the quotient of the impact body’s rebound and impact velocity, multiplied by 1000.” An impact body with a Tungsten Carbide test tip is propelled by spring force against the test surface and then rebounds back. A permanent magnet is contained within the impact body. When it passes through the coil on impact device, it induces an electric voltage which is proportional to the velocity of the impact body.
