Engineered with cutting-edge design and dynamic precision, it represents the pinnacle of technology available at YTS. Operating this hardness tester is straightforward, yet it yields highly sensitive and accurate results. Compliant with ASTM E-18 Rockwell Hardness standards, it ensures unparalleled repeatability across all standard and superficial Rockwell Hardness scales. It’s a robust performer suitable for various environments including heat treat facilities, workshops, , tool rooms, laboratories, and inspection labs.


The Rockwell hardness tester finds versatile applications across a spectrum of materials, aiding in quality control and material characterization. For hard alloys and surface-hardened steel, it measures resistance to indentation, ensuring desired hardness levels crucial for durability and performance. In copper alloys, it assesses hardness variations critical for machining and structural integrity. For carburized steel, the tester gauges surface hardness, vital for wear resistance and component longevity. Similarly, it evaluates the hardness of hard cast steel and malleable castings, informing casting process optimization. When assessing annealed steel, it verifies proper softness for machining and forming operations. Conversely, for hardened steel, it confirms desired hardness post-heat treatment. In aluminum alloys, it determines hardness for structural applications and machining suitability. Soft steel hardness measurement aids in material selection for specific applications, while in bearing steel, it ensures appropriate hardness for load-bearing capabilities, thus supporting the tester’s significance across diverse industries and materials.
