Hardness tester HardyTest D400©

The HardyTest D400© is built ultra small and is equipped with a convenient folding stand. With the cable probe D, one can also check unfavorably placed working pieces. It is perfect in difficult to measure areas and on the go!

The HardyTest D400© is applicable for almost all hardness measurements on ferrous and non-ferrous metals. It has proven itself  in the power industry, petrochemical industry, in apparatus-, automotive- and mechanical-engineering, quality control, steelwork industry, and many more.
