Order no.: PCE-2600

The hardness tester is used to quickly record the surface hardness. Hardness testers like the PCE-2600 are typically used in production and quality assurance. As a result of the fact that the hardness tester is a non-stationary hand-held measuring device which permits one-handed operation, it is thus possible to carry out surface measurements on various materials. 


- Measuring method: according to Leeb
- Hardness scales: HL, HB, HRB, HRC, HV, HS
- Type of impactor: DL
