Buehler Micromet 5104


The Buehler 5104 Microindentation Hardness Tester comes with digital control and an eight step 10gf – 1000gf test load range
(10gf, 25gf, 50gf, 100gf, 200gf, 300gf, 500gf, and 1000gf).


Tester features a motorized turret carrying three objectives
(10x, 20x and 50x) and both Knoop and Vickers diamonds.


A digital filar eyepiece provides measurement resolution to 0.01µm for precise measurement of both Knoop and Vickers microindentations with the
corresponding hardness readings displayed on the large easy to read LCD console. Measured hardness values are displayed in Knoop or Vickers according to the indenter in use and can also be displayed as converted hardness values in other scales such as Rockwell.

Hardness data from batches of up to 256 indentations may be stored and statistically analyzed with report generation and printing on the maximum, minimum, average, range, standard deviation and number of values within and outside of set limits of hardness. 


A 50W halogen illuminator with aperture diaphragm and removable green filter allows the tester to be used as a microscope. 

Special Features:

  • Has ability to test loads from 10 gf to 1000 gf

  • Digital display shows reading in microns, HV/HK and selected conversions.

  • Electronics automatically convert microns to HV/HK, no need to revert to "the wheel"

  • Accuracy that conforms to ASTM E-384
