Vickers Hardness tester



Success is a journey…

The FALCON 400G2 is the second generation of an essential range of Micro Vickers / Vickers / Brinell hardness testing machines. Combining traditional hardness testing methods with latest updates on technology and requirements to meet the applicable DIN EN ISO ASTM and JIS standards while providing maximum user comfort.

A state-of-the-art, multi load cell test force actuator, with a test range of 1gf up to 62.5kgf allowing the 400G2 to provide a force application band width, that hasn’t been available in this category of machines anywhere before. Electronic motorized systems on two high precision ball screw Z-axis, arranges maximum control over the force
range as well as the workpiece positioning.

The 6 position turret, with collision detection & retraction system is equipped with high quality objectives that remain automatically focused on the workpiece surface, while changing between objectives. Innovative dynamic Z-axis movement over a magnification (objective) depending electronic handwheel, a unique
feature that can only be found on the FALCON 400G2.

The robust I-TOUCH™ workflow control unit, won’t be damaged from falling objects, while the intuitive software gives access to easy workflow control over the hardness testers functions.
