UCI hardness tester PCE-3000 series Mobile UCI hardness tester / hardness scales HRC, HB and HV / NDT device for measuring tensile strength Rm suitable / / for parts up to a thickness of 1 mm

The UCI hardness tester PCE-3000 can be used for quickly checking the hardness of components even after installation. The device offers a wide measurement range, easy handling, robust design and a temperature resistance up to -20 ° C. In addition to the hardness in Rockwell, Brinell and Vickers, the UCI hardness tester can test the tensile strength of steels up to 1740 MPa. The UCI hardness tester comes standard with a manual probe with a test force of 50N, with this probe can be measured independent of direction from all directions with no correction factor.

Another advantage of the hardness tester is its NDT property. There is a Vickers diamond, which is excited in the ultrasonic frequency range at the probe tip. Touching the diamond to the specimen surface dampens the vibrations. The resulting frequency shift is directly related to the surface hardness of the test piece. Due to the low test loads, the penetration depth of the diamond is very low, which is why only an almost invisible impression remains.

The UCI hardness tester is therefore used for the control of small thin-walled components, for surface hardened specimens or nitrided components. The hardness tester has also been effective in the measurement of welds and control of components with complex geometry. 

In addition to the UCI method measuring the PCE-3000 can be equipped with a rebound probe. This allows the UCI hardness tester can be upgraded to a Rebound hardness testers. So the users of hardness tester are two models to choose from the PCE-3000U with UCI Hardness Tester and the PCE-3000UL, which is complemented by the rebound hardness probe.

- Non-destructive hardness testing
