The Wilson UH4000 series are robust hardness testers for fast testing cycles. They are available in two models: The UH4250 model features hardness scales from 0.5 to 250 kgf and the UH4750 model from 3 to 750 kgf .
Buehler engineered these new hardness testers to assist high throughput manufacturing with a new 8-position turret that is designed to hold the desired combinations of indenters and objectives. This contributes significantly towards speeding up testing cycles in batch testing. The operator can test to a variety of test methods without the need for manual indenter/objective changes. A sturdy turret cover protects the highly accurate measurement system and turret assembly against external influences and collisions, e.g. with test pieces. The integrated DiaMet software is intuitive to operate and makes testing easy, repeatable and automatic.
In addition, the large T-slot stage offers a clamping surface of 300mm x 400mm and high weight capacity, thus enabling testing of heavy and big parts. The new Wilson® UH4000 hardness testers are therefore flexible tools suited to a variety of tasks in quality control and process-related quality assurance, in laboratories and directly on the shop floor, for large or small components in the automotive sector and in metal production, for hardness measurements on large, flat or cylindrical castings or forgings, steels, heat treated materials, cemented carbides, ceramics, plastics and composite materials.
