Tinius Olsen's versatile new hardness testing line spans desktop models like the FH-2 shown here, as well as floor mounted and portable units.

HORSHAM, PA--(Marketwire -05/07/12)- Tinius Olsen, the Horsham, PA, USA-based manufacturer of materials testing machines and systems, has launched a diversified line of new generation hardness testers, which can rapidly and accurately determine the hardness value of a wide variety of materials including metals, plastics, large parts, and small precision parts. Users can choose from universal models that can run any popular hardness scale test (Vickers, Micro-Vickers, Brinell, Rockwell, Superficial Rockwell, Knoop, HBT, or HVT) or method-specific units. Portable, bench, and floor-mounted testers are available. By integrating the latest designs, hardware and firmware, these testers are fast, accurate and demonstrate some of the best gauge repeatability and reproducibility data in the industry, along with excellent accuracies and resolutions.

The FH series of hardness testers are load cell based systems offering enhanced test results over dead weight loading units. Most models incorporate the latest full-color touch screen displays and controls for easy user interfacing. Connectivity is via USB port and Wi-Fi with the ability to consolidate test results data from other Tinius Olsen testing machines in the same lab using the company's latest Horizon test automation software platform.

Each tester in the range is priced to include all accessories needed to run that model's hardness test methods. A variety of precision work piece sliding tables, built-in electronic digital microscopes, objectives of varying magnification, and LED illumination choices ensure virtually every hardness testing requirement can be met, from light to heavy duty. Many portable models extend test choices into the field. For a complete list of available models, visit the Tinius Olsen website.
