MTRX Macro & Micro-Hardness Tester

MTRX Macro & Micro-Hardness Tester

For Testing a Gear Tooth, OD or ID

Esatest MTRX Macro & Micro Hardness Tester

The Esatest MTRX is a specialized patented trans-portable digital micro hardness tester, using a unique measurement system for hardness testing in normally inaccessible locations and on odd specimen types. The tester uses an indenter specially coated with a resistive material to measure changes in resistivity, as the indenter is progressively penetrating the sample.

Features:

  • Patented method for depth of indentation testing via electrical resistivity measurements on the indenter
  • Tests inside diameters, gear teeth, irregular shapes, etc.
  • Results not affected by deflection and vibration
  • Test stand orients to position for testing on many angles.

    The inside diameter of a hardened test specimen
    presents a unique challenge for testing. Here the small
    profile of the MTR indenter holder allows testing.
    The MTRX test stand allows the unit to rotate in three
    axes in order to reach difficult test positions like the
    gear tooth hardness testing being shown here.

    The test method employs a resistive coating on a diamond indenter that measures the progressive indentation of
    the diamond and generates a test result in equivalent hardness values like Rockwell or Vickers.
