But, ignoring the limits and the problems that an old instrument might have could cause some trouble. After all, we’re talking about measuring instruments, that should be both reliable and simple to be used.
That’s why the retrofit is a great solution, that allows:
Save the money that you might have used for buying a new hardness tester
Keep using your old hardness tester by implementing new technologies and making it easier to approach
Avoid taking a course to learn how to use a new instrument
But how does our retrofit work?
We completely refurbish your old hardness tester using advanced technologies. We then proceed to assess the conformity of the entire system with the international reference standards, thanks to our hardness tester adjustment service. The final result is an updated hardness tester, both in its software and its mechanical and electrical components.
Giving new lymph to an old Brinell Hardness Tester
GOAL: making the hardness tester faster and easier to use with the possibility of statistical processing of test results.
OUR TECHNICAL INTERVENTION: we have added a camera and a computer with a built-in software. In this way we have assured:
automatic optical analysis of the indentations, so that to have a better vision, resolution and reliability
possibility to set up test time
statistical data processing, export of test results and creation of customizable test reports
This is completed by the maintenance and adjustment of the instrument.
FINAL ACHIEVEMENT:the tool has become more intuitive and has increased the productivity of the department by 10%.
