This application scans the entire outline (or partial) area of a sample. The function can be used with an objective by using the overview zoom camera for high speed scanning. The system scans the entire outline defined and stores all relevant data in the test program.
Subsequently, a limitless number of test points can be inserted into the scanned image, or be set at selected distances (offset), relative to the edge. This advanced feature enables the hardness testing procedure to be performed atomically. An excellent feature to combine with 2D or 3D hardness mapping, also known as ‘’plane hardness chart’’.
