I barely use it I don’t need any control!
I maintain it very well, what could happen?
As strong as they may seem, hardness testers are neither unbreakable nor eternal! Both the prolonged use and the state of inactivity can generate problems that if underestimated could compromise the reliability of the instrument in its use.
That is why international standards recommend regular maintenance and adjustment. Specifically, it is the second part of all ISO standards that outlines the timing.
In general, these two checks must be carried out every 12 months in compliance with the standards. However, the timing is shortened when the hardness tester is used frequently.
If these checks are not performed, the reliability and the quality of the hardness results won’t be accurate. To be frank, it’s not the best for instrument that should certify parameters of certainty on your production!
The requirement for a good use of your hardness tester over time is therefore to take care of it.
This is a care that cannot be improvised!
The maintenance checks that each component of the hardness tester works perfectly by replacing or restoring the worn parts.
The adjustment, on the other hand, ensures that the hardness tester performs correctly the test cycle in full compliance with the international standards. Discover the adjustment and maintenance services.
These checks are very different from each other but strongly connected together. Therefore, international standards recommend to always set the maintenance before the adjustment.
Obviously, these checks can be performed only by experts.
Don’t waste any time in a production stop: set your maintenance and adjustment checks!
This check has to be carried out in case of your hardness tester requires some additional maintenance. The service is based on updating software components and/or hardware without having to find a new instrument to replace your hardness tester.
In other words, this is an increase in years of use of your instrument. Want to know more? Discover the Retrofit service in detail.
