The method, also referred to as a Microhardness Test Method, is mostly used in the small parts, thin sections, or case depth work. The Vickers Software follows ASTME-384.
The Vicker Microhardness methods are used to test on metals, ceramics, composites, etc. When the mean diagonal of the indentation has been determined the Vickers
hardness may be calculated from the formula by Software. Case Hardness Depth (CHD) measurement is automatic. A common application of hardness testing is the evaluation
of the hardness depth of Surface-hardened steels. This is done by performing a series of hardness impressions from the edge of the cross-sectioned sample toward the center.
The hardness progression is plotted on a graph, and the distance from the Surface to the so-called hardness limit (HL) is calculated.
- The high-definition testing provides accurate, repeatable, and reproducible test results inthe macro and micro ranges.
