Universal hardness tester


General information

The VERZUS 750 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 1 kgf/9.8 N to 250 kgf/2.45 kN, 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. The 750CCD is equipped with Rockwell, Superficial Rockwell, Vickers, Brinell, HVT, HBT and Depth ball measurement. All models also include Plastic testing scales according to ISO 2039/1.

The VERZUS 750CCD offers more ...

An embedded powerful PC runs the hardness testing software IMPRESSIONS™. This allows you to mount the optional Y-axis motorized Jominy stage or coordinate testing table (X-Y stage) for pattern testing. Also suitable for Eht.

A CCD camera system with LED ring light recording all Brinell and Vickers indentations and measuring the results automatically. At a finger touch you store all results on the systems hard disk database. Automatic measurement, indent ZOOM function, conversions to other scales, other standards and many additional functions are part of the standard delivery.

At your convenience the VERZUS 750 models can be equipped with a motorized spindle that lifts your work piece, without any effort, to the required testing or measuring position. Ideal for smaller workshops, educational purposes and for those who want to be versatile in hardness measurement with a larger scale of automation.

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!
