Universal hardness tester


General information

The NEXUS 8100 standard and XLM are dual Z-axis Universal hardness Testers. Not only can the spindle be located at any position in height, the test head with 50 mm stroke will then conduct all testing, to reduce that spindle movement to a minimum. It can be seen as the best of two worlds, having workpiece accommodation freedom and conducting testing at visual height.

The range contains high-quality mechanical components and is equipped with an 18 Megapixels integrated camera with calibrated zoom function guaranting fast and accurate user-independent measurements.
The sturdy design of the NEXUS 8100 (XLM) allows rough workshop conditions. Aircraft engine parts, automobile parts, production line integration, general quality assurance and laboratory use are all fields covered by the NEXUS 8100 (XLM).
