Hardness tester

  • 10-Apr-2012 04:47 EDT


The improved Versitron Rockwell Hardness Testing System from Newage Testing Instruments achieves hardness test results in all operating conditions, making it suitable for lab or shop use. The tester eliminates the need to use jack rests for large parts or to frequently clean or cut parts to be tested. The modular and self-contained Versitron features a fast test cycle, robust frame, and a user-friendly system. An indenter system prevents test errors caused by deflection during the load, and a clamping shield securely holds test parts. Surrounding the indenter is a shroud to sense the position relative to the test surface when the preload is applied, maintaining test result accuracy. All testers have RS-232 output for data transfer and are available with DataView software for test data collection.

Making off-highway equipment, such as construction or agriculture machines, more efficient continues to be a priority after the final phase-in of the U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. “Some of the companies we work with are running out of credits and unfortunately still struggling with Tier 4,” explained Tristan Donley, Technical Director, Off-Highway Heavy Vehicles North American for Exa, a supplier of software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
With the new SCALEXIO LabBox, dSPACE offers a compact high-performance system for hardware-in-the-loop tests.
The accuracy of an NO gas sensor (the primary component of NOx) can be compromised when exposed to ambient temperatures above 86°F (30°C) and significantly more so above 104°F (40°C).
