Rockwell hardness tester


General information

Development of high speed production Rockwell hardness testing. Modern design, innovated technology, multi-purpose hardness testing instrument, based on the application of precision mechatronic components.

A superior level of precision combined with advance graphic images for maximum test procedure control. Unparalled GR & R results.

The NEMESIS 9000RS™ represents Rockwell hardness testing at the highest possible standard.

Aircraft engine parts, automobile parts, production lines, general quality assurance and laboratory use, are all fields covered by the NEMESIS 9000RS™.
