Brinel & Rockwelll hardness tester


General information

The 8103 series are heavy duty hardness testers, robust, rigid, heavy duty design suitable for HBT measurement and contain high-quality mechanical components.  Load cell, closed loop force feedback system. Unique in its class, the NEXUS 8103 series have a descending test head and a manual or motorized Z-Axis spindle. This provides a flexible working height and automated test head operation.

Aircraft engine parts, automobile parts and production lines are all covered by the NEXUS 8103. The NEXUS 8103 is developed as a fast Brinell Depth measuring system. The optional supplied BIOS scanner allows to conduct optical measurements too.
