Rockwell Hardness

As defined in ISO 6508 & ASTM E-18, is the most commonly used hardness test method.

The Rockwell test is generally easier to perform, and quicker than other types of hardness testing methods.

The Rockwell method measures the permanent depth of indentation produced by a force/load on an indenter.

NEXUS 601 series

The NEXUS 601 series are a new generation of hardness testing instruments.

The testers? main body is a fine casted rigid structure which incorporates a load cell, closed loop force actuator that provides continuous force feedback information. 

The load application system avoids ?overshoot? during the test force application and guarantees one of the best GR & R results ever seen on Rockwell/Brinell hardness testers in this class. The tester meets or exceeds the ISO, ASTM and JIS standards. (ISO 6508, ISO 2039/2, ASTM E18, ASTM B254, JIS Z2245)

Test forces range from 2.5kgf/24.5N to 150kgf/1471N, advanced algorithms, digital filter technology and state of the art electronics provide a very reliable and robust Rockwell hardness tester.

NEXUS stands for Next Generation.

Even this most basic model is equipped with Rockwell, Superficial Rockwell and Brinell load settings.

The NEXUS 601RS model allows to perform hardness tests in Rockwell and Superficial Rockwell scales and optionally (601RSB) can provide Brinell hardness testing.
