Fischer Instrumentation’s mid-range micro and nano hardness testing systems have found a niche with the laboratory sector because of the diversity of complex applications the systems satisfy. The systems are proving to be a very cost efficient solution.
Micro and Nano Hardness Testing
To this end, Fischer have developed a microsite dedicated to micro and nano hardness testing, to not only act as a source of useful papers and information on hardness and materials testing but also to provide a platform to explain why the Fischer hardness testing system is different.
There are many hardness testers in the marketplace, including portable instruments, which meet basic and simple requirements but which do not have the scope of the Fischer system, which has found uses in laboratories where the requirements are more challenging and varied.
Laboratory Hardness Testing
Laboratory uses so far include testing the ultra thin hard coating on a soft substrate, the hardness pattern within boundary layers, the elastic and plastic properties, the creep properties or the characteristic qualities such as modulus of indentation and the elastic-plastic energy portions. The systems are offered as manual, semi automatic and automatic, all systems having the capability to remove subjective operator errors.
