AFFRI 206RSD/SD Automatic Rockwell Hardness Tester

AFFRI 206 RSD / SD
Automatic Rockwell Hardness Testers

affri 206 rsd

The AFFRI 206 RSD Series bench hardness testers are suitable for both shop floor and lab use.

  • Meets ASTM E-18, E-10, E-384 and ISO 6508, 6507, 6506 internation hardness standards.
  • The clamping system assures perfect stability of any test piece throughout the test cycle, even if it is oiled, rusty or dirty.
  • Not affected by vibrations and does not need to be leveled.
  • Clamp to any surface geometry from round to flat. The indenter is automatically aligned with the measurement axis.
  • The moving test head permits easy measurements on large pieces, reaching points at the top of the sample that would be difficult to be measured with common testers.
  • Load forces are applied through a dynamometric load cell which eliminates problems associated with dead weight systems on traditional testers.
  • Measurement values are displayed with absolute accuracy (better than 0.5%) in every condition, accurate measurements even on the first test will eliminate the need for repeated tests.
  • Digital hardness tester with LCD screen, user friendly interface, real time statistics, graphs and large archive storage
  • Hardness testing on all metals: iron, steel, tempered steel, cast iron, brass, aluminum, copper and metal alloys. Heat treatment, hardening, nitriding, cementation and hard facing.


All Operations are managed by a single drive including automatic contact with the test piece and test cycle.

manual drive

Manual Drive & Automatic Cycle

Just pull the START lever and the hardness tester's head moves down to make contact with the sample' surface, locking it in place. The hardness test cycle will automatically begin in automatic succession without missing a beat. Within seconds results will appear on the LCD screen.





The AFFRI System

Load forces are generated by a dynamometric load cell, which assures long term accuracy and eliminates problems associated with dead weight systems used by traditional testers. Results are not affected by structural deflection, misalignment or vibration.

repeatability

Repeatability & Reproducibility:

Accurate measurements on the first test, even in extreme conditions, will eliminate the need for repeated tests. The R&R data is at the top of its class.





50mm indenter

50mm indenter and clamping Hood Stroke

The measuring head follows the sample even in case of structural deflection. Easy and fast hardness measurements on various thicknesses without adjustment of the elevating screw.

The minor and major loads are applied to the test surface, unlike conventional hardness testers that require both surface to be smooth and parallel.






Clamping System

206-rsd-clamp

Clamping feature allows for testing large, overhanging parts without the need for additional fixturing.

The clamping hood applies constant pressure and prevents accidental sample movements during the test cycle.

206-rsd-2in stroke

The 2 inch clamping stroke enables operations to clamp and test parts of various sizes in one easy motion without the need for height adjustments for ease of use and faster testing.


206 rsd flexible

Flexible parts can be tested securely.
