HMV-2 Series
Micro Hardness Tester

Includes a function for filing testing conditions and is fully automated.

The HMV-2 Series micro hardness tester is indispensable to today´s metallographic researcher. This type of work requires the ability to precisely measure the hardness of small parts, metallic structures used in precision equipment, processed surface layers, and metal plating layers, all with little damage to the specimen. The HMV Series hardness testers have been designed to meet these demanding conditions, providing outstanding performance with ease-of-use and user friendly design.


LCD Touch Panel Provides an Easy User Interface for inputting Load Rates, Duration, and Other Testing Parameters

Automatic Load-Change Mechanism

The LCD touch panel facilitates easy selection of test load, load duration, and other testing parameters.

Select Test Modes to Match Your Objective

The HMV offers several different test modes to meet the needs of today's researchers. In addition to the standard test mode, which provides a simple load/duration indentation, the researcher is also able to select other modes for more complex measurements.

High Accuracy Measurement

A minimum unit of diagonal length measurement of 0.01µm (when using the X40 objective lens) ensures measurement accuracy to the most exacting standards.

Convenient Analysis & Graph Display Functions

A wealth of analysis functions are included as standard, such as statistical calculation data editing, conversion, graph display, and a go/no-go decision function.

HMV-2T (Electric Turret Model)* Optional

Automatic rotation of the turret between indenter and objective lens accelerates operator productivity, thus saving time and money.
