Fully automated hardness testing after heat treatment

11-06-2017 02:09 PM CET | Industry, Real Estate & Construction

Press release from: BAQ GmbH

The latest hardness testing machines of BAQ GmbH are configured for the automated testing in production lines. Due to the high measuring speed, 100 % check-ups can be carried out while production. The standardized Rockwell or Super-Rockwell testing method is selected according to the measuring task. The test load range can be between 15 kg and 150 kg. For this reason it is not only possible to measure steel parts, but also to carry out the quality control of aluminium components directly after the heat treatment.
Compared to the Brinell process, which is mostly used in testing aluminium, the Rockwell processes offer various advantages:
no optical evaluation, smaller test loads possible, speed, easy to automate.
Thanks to the new design, the compact testing modules can be integrated into existing production lines. They can be mounted almost in any order and measure, because of the new function, on inclined surfaces as well. The size of the parts that can be tested is not limited in contrast to hardness testing machines in the usual construction.
Each testing machine consists of the hardness testing module and a seperate control unit, which can be e.g. placed into a control box. In the manual mode the operation is carried out via the control unit. The automatic operation with a higher-level control unit uses input and output switches. The measuring result is evaluated according to the set limits and the switching outputs are set accordingly. The hardness value can be queried via USB or the RS232 interface.

BAQ GmbH is operating in the field of material testing since 1992. The product range covers stationary and portable hardness testers (Vickers, Rockwell, Brinell, Shore, impact hardness and ultrasonic contact impedance (UCI) method) as well as devices for testing layer thickness, abrasion resistance, scratching resistance and coating adhesion strength. These devices are used in all areas of material testing, e.g. inspection of incoming goods, production, research and development. More than 20 years of experience and continuous cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films and others as well as in-house development and production in Germany guarantee good quality and optimal service. BAQ also offers optimized solutions for special requirements.
