Universal hardness tester for automatic Brinell, Vickers, Rockwell, Superficial Rockwell, Shore and CHD test methods in compliance with ASTM and ISO hardness standards. Integral is a top level bench hardness tester for fully automatic test cycles. It is entirely motorized and equipped with an automatic turret with indenters and magnification lenses for indent auto-reading after indentation. This multifunctional turret allows multiple tests in different hardness scales with just one tester, without the need to change indenters or lenses when changing hardness method. Load forces are applied through load cells and electronically controlled in Closed Loop (Pat. Affri). The exact hardness result on the first test and R&R data are at the top of its class, absolute accuracy (better than 0.5 %) in every condition. Integral 1 has a large fixed base and a motorized head with long vertical stroke. Wide touchscreen and a user friendly interface for ease in test planning and a clear view of results. Statistics and diagrams are automatically generated and can be stored with test sessions in the large archive. Hardness tests on all metals: iron, steel, tempered steel, cast iron, brass, aluminum, copper and metal alloys. Heat treatment, hardening, nitriding, cementation and hardfacing. Hard and soft plastics.
