Vickers Hardheidsmeter



Traditional technology reinvented…

The FALCON 450 improves conventional hardness testing methods and focuses on eliminating user influence on the test results. The unique force actuator system utilizes an electronically controlled loadcell closed loop system and advanced force sensor technology, with force feedback to achieve absolute accuracy, reliability and repeatability, on each of the forces used for a test.

The innovative software functions of the I-TOUCH™ workflow control, allow file storing, test program setting and storing, limit settings, conversions to other hardness scales, system setup but also convex and concave test settings that contribute to the high reproducibility of test results.
