Feature: Portability and Convenience: The Barcol hardness tester is a handy ⁣tool​ designed to measure the​ hardness of various materials such as aluminum, ​aluminum alloys, copper, brass, plastics,⁤ and fiberglass. This instrument is versatile and can be used on both fabricated parts and raw ⁤stock.

Ease of Use: This tester is user-friendly and requires no prior experience. It can be operated in any position and‍ in any space that ‌accommodates the operator’s⁣ hand. The hardness reading is instantly displayed on the dial, which is divided‍ into one hundred graduations. There’s no need for ‍preloading or separate‍ measurements.

Lightweight: Weighing only 0.55 kg, ‌the ​hardness tester is​ easy to carry around. It comes with a carrying case,⁢ an adjusting wrench, and two spare indenter points weighing 2kg.

Applications: ⁢The 934-1 model is ideal for testing soft metals like aluminum and its alloys, brass, ‍copper, ‌and some ‍of⁢ the‍ harder plastics and fiberglass. It has an ‍approximate range of 25 to 150 Brinell (10 ​mm ball‌ 500 kg load). This unit ⁣complies with the‍ American Society for ‌Testing and ⁣Materials‌ (ASTM) Standard D-2583.

Operating Information:

1. The hardness tester is most effective when used on homogeneous materials. Materials with granular, fibrous, or coarse structures may ​produce varied hardness readings due to​ the small diameter of the indenter ​point.

2. For accurate readings, the⁣ material ⁤should be at ⁣least 1/32″ thick and large enough to maintain a minimum⁣ distance of ‌1/8″ in any direction from the ‌indenter point to the edge of​ the specimen. The ⁤testing area should be smooth and free from mechanical ‍damage.

3. To use, simply apply light pressure ⁢against the instrument to drive the spring-loaded indenter​ point into ⁢the ​material. The indenter point must be perpendicular to the surface being tested.

4.⁢ On very‍ soft metals, the highest reading should be used since cold flow allows the spring-loaded indenter point to continue penetration.

Specifications: The pressure needle has a 26-degree truncation ​conical ⁢end⁢ face with a​ diameter of 0.157 mm. ⁢The range is 0-100 HBa, with an effective measurement range equivalent to 25-135 HBW. The resolution is 0.5HBa.

Indicative Error:‍ 81-88HBa±1HBa

Repeatability ‌Error: 81-88HBa±1.5HBa
42-48HBa ±2.5HBa

Package Includes: 1 x‍ Barcol Hardness Tester, 1 ‍x Bracket (set), 1 x Needle, 1‌ x Calibration wrench, 4 x ⁣Hardness block, 1 x User ​Manual
