FH 31-3 Rockwell and Brinell Hardness Tester

The model FH 31-3 is a new generation of hardness testing instrument with protruding nose design. This long-nose design allows you to reach as far as 150mm inside a bore or just on flat material similar to any other Rockwell hardness tester. It has a working height of 400mm and a throat depth of 200mm and can also be optionally equipped with an automatic spindle. Simply push ‘’START’’ and the full process of lifting, clamping, and testing takes place without operator interference.

A twin-scale Rockwell machine that also provides the option for Brinell testing. Easy to use, excellent workpiece overview. Test forces range from 1-187.5kgf, which means that even this basic model is equipped with Rockwell, Superficial Rockwell and Brinell load settings. System control is managed via a simple-to-use 8.5in full color industrial touchscreen. The touchscreen will also display results and statistics.
