Axiotek: hardness testers producers 100% made in Italy

Since 2014 we devise, project and produce hardness testers and accessories with a unique design. Our solutions range from Vickers, Brinell and Rockwell hardness tests, to Knoop, Shore, IRHD and even Martens hardness measurements.  

Each of our measurement instrument is made entirely in our headquarter in Varese (a big city near Milan, Italy): we are engineers, designers, IT technicians and even professors that cooperate every day in order to produce and optimize the R&D of our hardness testing software and hardware.

We cooperate with the most prestigious technology representatives of the Italian scenery like the Politecnico di Torino in order to strengthen research in the material engineering field, providing innovative solutions even to prestigious enterprises like LEONARDO and TERNA, that chose us as hardness testers providers for the productivity of their quality control.

Our ISO 17025 services for the hardness measurement

We support your work in a steady and direct way. One of our biggest strengths is the attention we pay to active listening: our qualified team is able to solve all of your doubts and criticalities.

Our knowledge is the result of many years of experience that we have gained directly on the field: aside from the production of our innovative line, in fact, from 2017 we also design and build the range of hardness testers branded AFFRI, and we can perform maintenance, retrofit and calibration/adjustment of other brands on the market. 

Our services kept growing and now include:

Calibration/adjustment and maintenance of measurement instruments according to the ATSM and ISO industry standards. 

pre-sale and after-sale Assistance and consultancy

Training in the use

A unique generational experience in measurement instruments

We are an enterprise with more than 60 years of generational experience in the quality control: our reality was born as an evolution of a family story that begun in the now distant 1954, and that has now reached the third generation. 

Axiotek was founded in 2014 by Davide Affri with an ambitious goal: innovate hardness testers like no one had ever done in the industry.
