Instrumented indentation testing is a very important yet very sophisticated and expensive method to determine a material’s hardness and elastic properties. Hit 300 is a premium and highly affordable nanoindentation instrument built for every user and every type of environment.

The simplified user interface is intuitive, automation enables up to 600 measurements per hour, and active anti-vibration damping ensures accuracy in all environments. Start-up takes 15 min, and within 1 hour, every user is able to go from training straight to results. Hit 300 – a delightful fusion of simplicity and power.

Hit 300 marks a new era for companies that have not yet had the possibility to test their surfaces with nanoindentation in-house. Hit 300 is not only highly affordable, but also remarkably resilient. Due to its compact size and the anti-vibration damping, it can be directly placed on the production-site. Thanks to its user-oriented design, real products, from small to big, can be measured without any complex preparation. A unique laser-targeting system additionally assists the user in targeting the sample with an accuracy of <1mm.

The instrument is also made for training all the mechanical engineers of tomorrow. Anton Paar offers an education package containing everything essential for teaching nanoindentation testing: presentations, practical tests, samples, etc.

Hit 300. Simple. Powerful.
