Press release from: BAQ GmbH

Hardness tester MIC 10: The device's manufacturer GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies (Krautkramer) terminated the production at the end of October 2017.

For this reason, the wideley-used UCI hardness tester MIC 10 is not available anymore. After the device has not been developped for many years, the manufacturer has now drawn a line.

A modern alternative is offered by the company BAQ GmbH. With the alphaDUR mini, the alphaDUR II and the laboratory instrument UT200, a hardness scanner, which can rapidely measure hardness profiles on surfaces, BAQ covers all application areas up to fully automatic testings in production.

The UCI procedure according to DIN 50159 and ASTM A1038 has been used by BAQ for 25 years. The devices are constantly kept up-to-date with the latest technologies in order to offer maximum precision with simple operation to the user.

BAQ also offers a wide range of probes from HV1 to HV10, as well as equipment adapting to the respective measuring task.

The alphaDUR UCI hardness testers are provided through a worldwide sales network. Detailed, qualified advice is just as natural as short lead times for calibrations and low prices.

BAQ UCI devices:

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.

Fully automated hardness testing after heat treatment
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,
