Universal hardness tester


General information

The NEMESIS 9600 is a heavy-duty floor type universal hardness tester most suitable for harsh testing conditions of very large parts. This floor type frame reaches a height of 2 meters and offers a workspace of not less than 650 mm height and a throat depth of 395 mm from spindle center.

The heavy duty motorized spindle with over 800 kg lifting capacity allows to position the test piece on the required working height. Rockwell, Vickers and Brinell, but also pure depth test methods such as HVT and HBT are part of the standard test procedures of the NEMESIS 9600.
The second Z-axis has a 150 mm stroke descending test head which gives unique flexibility.
