The FALCON 450 series, Vickers, (Micro Vickers) Knoop and Micro Brinell hardness testing machines are a new generation of instruments, improving conventional hardness testing methods and focused on eliminating user influence on the test results.
The unique force actuator system utilizes an electronically controlled closed loop system and advanced force sensor technology, with force feedback to achieve absolute accuracy, reliability and repeatability, on each of the forces used for a test. The test range is unparalleled for a tester in this class.
Besides this advanced electromechanical force application system, the FALCON offers superior quality mechanical and optical components, used to complete the instrument.
The innovative software functions of I-Touch™ workflow control, allow file storing, test program setting and storing, limit settings, conversions to other hardness scales, system setup but also convex and concave test settings that contribute to the high reproducibility of test results.
Digital / optical image evaluation combined with intuitive operator software avoid operator influence on the test results.
A rock solid frame structure, that can withstand the harshest environment, is covered by shock and damage proof ABS covers. The covers avoid damage to the machines high tech interior and stay in a good condition over the years to come. No dents or paint damage from fallen work pieces. Replacement of the covers, if required at all, is easy and economic.
The FALCON series beating heart is a powerful embedded micro system controller with no moving or running parts. The system is easy to service and can be exchanged in just minutes if ever required.
