A rockwell hardness tester for sale is an essential tool for industrial applications such as metal fabrication, manufacturing and inspection. This device measures the stiffness or strength of a material by using a harder tool, usually a steel ball or diamond cone, to make an impression on the surface of the sample. The depth of the indentation is then measured to determine the material hardness.
Hardness testers are available in a variety of styles, from traditional bench-top models that use the Brinell, Rockwell and Vickers methods to portable ultrasonic hardness testers for non-destructive testing on the go. Shop for models that are compatible with your chosen method and scale, so you can get results quickly and easily.
Whether you need a digital Rockwell hardness tester to measure carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron, non-ferrous metals or engineering plastics or a portable ultrasonic hardness tester for testing large parts and thin materials, Penn Tool has the ideal instrument for your application. We carry a full range of dependable analog and digital machines that use standard bench-top methods, as well as high-tech models with advanced features that allow you to customize the measurement process and data output.
