Hardness tester for plastics


General information

The VERZUS 700 series are a new generation of hardness testing instruments. The testers are constructed around a rock solid C-frame with unparalleled rigidity. The closed loop system based on a load cell and precision force actuator guarantees the best GR & R results ever seen on Rockwell hardness testers.

The tester meets or exceeds the ISO, ASTM and JIS standards and conforms to Nadcap auditing.

Test forces range from 1kgf/9.8N to 250kgf/2.45kN, Advanced algorithms, digital filter technology and state of the art electronics provide unmatched force control. The test cycle can be as little as 13 seconds (at a dwell time of 10 seconds).

Depth measurement via an optical system with a direct reading of 0.1 micron.

VERZUS stands for versatile. Even the most basic model is equipped with Rockwell, Superficial Rockwell, HVT, HBT and Depth ball measurement. All models include plastic testing scales according to ISO 2039.

For demanding users the VERZUS can be equipped with a motorized spindle that lifts your work piece, without any effort, to the required testing position.

Models AS have a built on electronic microscope with various objectives and a work piece sliding table. This combination allows full scale testing, as it ads not only Brinell, but also Vickers scales to the field of application.

Ideal for smaller workshops, educational purposes and for those who want to be versatile in hardness measurement.

The outer skin of the tester is made of recyclable top class materials. The base is covered by a ABS shell that can withstand the harshest environments. No damage from falling testblocks or workpieces.

VERZUS if being certain is your priority!
