Vickers Hardness tester



Traditional technology reinvented

The FALCON 450 improves on the conventional hardness testing methods by focusing on elimination of user influence on the test results. The advanced force sensor technology utilizes an electronically controlled loadcell closed loop system with force feedback to achieve absolute accuracy, reliability and repeatability, on all of the forces used for a testing.

The innovative software functions of I-TOUCH™ workflow control, allows file storage, test program setting and storing, limit settings, conversions to other hardness scales, system setup and convex and concave sample test settings that contribute to the exceptional repeatability and reproducibility of test results.
