THE ARS10K, a fully automatic micro hardness testing system


The turret can hold both Knoop & Vickers diamonds, as well as up to 4 objectives.

The ARS-10K is a fully automatic testing system capable of programming, indenting, viewing and recording in one convenient location. By configuring the ARS to your specifications, the CM-Series performs Micro indentations from 10 - 1000gf in either Vickers or Knoop; or both using the optional dual indenter, while the CV-Series performs Macro/Vickers indentations from 0.3 - 50kgf. For accuracy and productivity, the ARS-10K is the perfect all-in-one system.

Special Features:

  • Auto-measure by selecting your programmed pattern (indent, focus, read, record)

  • Various measurement patterns (straight, zigzag, circle, line set, random)

  • Instant HV hardness displayed on chart after measurements on carbonized layer

  • Various data outputs available – Measurement data, hardness distribution chart, case depth, max. value, min. value, mean value, dispersion, standard deviation, coefficient of variation, OK-NG criteria, conversion data, etc.

  • Upper/lower safety switches on Z-axis prevent damage to indenter and objectives

  • Automatic operation means your operators can be preparing other mounts while one is running

  • Calibrated and ready to use
