Shimadzu HMV-2
Vickers Hardness Tester
Shimadzu Micro Testing System MMT
The HMV-2 Vickers hardness tester is indispensable to today's metallographic researcher. This type of work requires the ability to precisely measure the hardness of small parts, metallic structures used in precision equipment, processed surface layers, and metal plating layers, all with little damage to the specimen. The HMV Series hardness testers have been designed to meet these demanding conditions, providing outstanding performance with ease-of-use and user friendly design.
  LCD Touch Panel Provides an Easy User Interface for inputting Load Rates, Duration, and Other Testing Parameters  
  Automatic Load-Change Mechanism  
  The LCD touch panel facilitates easy selection of test load, load duration, and other testing parameters  
  Select Test Modes to Match Your Objective  
  The HMV offers several different test modes to meet the needs of today's researcher. In addition to the standard test mode, which provides a simple load/duration indentation, the researcher is also able to select other modes for more complex measurements  
  High Accuracy Measurement  
  A minimum unit of diagonal length measurement of 0.01Ám (when using the X40 objective lens) ensures measurement accuracy to the most exacting standards  
  Convenient Analysis & Graph Display Functions  
  A wealth of analysis functions are included as standard, such as statistical calculation data editing, conversion, graph display, and a go/no-go decision function  
  Automatic Revolving Electric Turret (only with HMV-2T)  
  Automatic rotation of the turret between indenter and objective lens accelerates operator productivity, thus saving time and money
