The BRINscan MkIII test head – rugged heavy duty construction for harsh industrial environments


Designed and engineered to perform reliably in the most arduous of environments, the BRINscan MkIII is well suited to in-line testing of components.

It features:

  • Integral automatic BRINtronic microscope for instant, reliable, repeatable results
  • Fixed test table that can support components on test weighing up to 10 tonnes
  • Independent hydraulic circuits for clamping and indenting so test force not influenced by clamping force
  • 3500kg clamping force ensures no movement of component under test
  • ISO 6506 and ASTM E-10 compliant indentation and measurement
  • Unrivalled build-quality, fabricated from 25mm steel plate for rigidity and strength

The BRINscan MkIII ensures that Brinell hardness testing can be achieved reliably, accurately and quickly with no operator influence on either the test process or the recording of the results.
