The most common uses for hardness tests is to verify the heat treatment of a part and to determine if a material has the properties necessary for its intended use. We offers Rockwell (standard or superficial), Brinell hardness, Knoop and Vickers microhardness testing. Tests are done on the specimens, welded joints, surface hardened parts to obtain hardness and hardness profiles (case depth determination), as required by ASTM A370, E10, E18, A1038, E103, D785, E140, E384 and E92.
