Mitutoyo America Corp.'s HR-600 Hardness Tester Expands Range of Measurements

Mitutoyo America Corp.’s HR-600 Hardness Tester combines functionality for Rockwell hardness testing and for Light Force Brinell testing in one machine, expanding the range of available measurements, according to the company.
HR-600 is the first Mitutoyo hardness tester to be equipped with a moving head. The head moves at a speed of 10 mm/s within a 210-mm range.
The table is designed for mounting workpieces and head with vertical mobility.
The hardness tester can test a variety of workpieces, ranging from metal (crankshafts, cylinder blocks) to softer workpieces (brake pads, plastic parts).
Users can choose from five different touchscreen displays (standard operating, simple, multi-point test, list display and list display based on various views). Users can directly select the hardness scale of their choice, and statistical analysis features can analyze multiple test results, streamlining the workflow and reducing measurement and analysis time, the company says.
AVPAK software enables smooth and efficient measurements. AVPAK, using part programs, enables automated multi-point testing in the X-, Y- and Z-axis directions.
The HR-600 supports special testing and offers supplemental add-ons, including PCs for remote operation software and V-anvils for round workpieces.
Evaluation software that simulates the physical locators of a machine tool when establishing datums ensures that medical device manufacturers accurately inspect parts.
A supplier that cannot guarantee thread quality can be hit with thousands of dollars in penalties and risks a strained relationship.
