Manual positioning of filar lines is no longer required. IMPRESSIONS™ refined measurement algorithms detect indents even on very poor or scratched surfaces and measure the relevant indent dimensions according to standards. Stay in control by switching to manual measure mode and have the option of adjusting measurements by touching the screen or using the mouse.
Filar lines can be colored to give the best contrast against the specimen’s surface. To assure that measurements meet relevant standards on symmetry, enable the automatic indent check. All hardness values can be converted to other scales according to ISO 18265, ISO 50150, ASTM E140.
