Fraud Blocker


Range of forces available:

From 10gf to 50kgf

Customizable range of forces: 1gf; 5gf and 62.5kgf.

The forces are managed by means of load cells with high sampling frequency (20 bits at 1 kHz) closed loop control, which ensure unequalled precision even at very low loads and are managed without inertia with guaranteed accuracy.

Test cycle:

manual focusing and automatic hardness calculation

Focusing is done manually, but assisted by the software: simply turn the micrometric handwheel to bring the sample closer to the measuring head with extreme accuracy. To ensure maximum reliability, the test cycle is automatic: the indenter generates the indentation, the lens performs the optical analysis and the hardness value appears on the PC monitor.

Management software and optical analysis: Vx Image®

Micropixel-D5 is the perfect combination of manual and automatic: it features a powerful software with more functions than the D1 and D3 models. Because we want to offer you an even more comfortable and in-depth user experience. Thanks to the image processing based on an algorithm developed entirely by Axiotek, Micropixel D5 allows fast and accurate optical analysis even on test specimens with less than optimal surface finish.

Intuitiveness and ease of use are two important aspects our approach: we have followed the “less is more” principle to guide you in the execution of the tests, without renouncing to advanced functions for the more experienced users.

  • Connected to the micrometric XY table with digital indicators: to perform stitching and multiple tests, presenting the coordinates on the display through a software guided procedure;
  • Macro function with dedicated panoramic lens: To always have with you the complete image of the sample, thus ensuring maximum comfort in the immediate calculation of hardness on extremely complex geometries.
  • CAD System: Free drawing mode on the test surface that allows the creation of orientation geometries and fingerprint reading (on request);
  • Possibility of combining special sample holder and customized anvils;
  • Dynamic zoom with high definition vision;
  • Smart self-exposure: optimization of the contrast of the indentation, in order to increase the reproducibility of the automatic measurement even in sub-optimal conditions;
  • Hardness value calculated in automatic or manual mode;
  • Data export and backup, with results also stored as image. All data collected during testing can be saved as .pdf, .xls, .xml, .txt, and .csv files, depending on the format needed for further processing;
  • Possibility of direct connection with process or project management software (like ERP programs), through further customized applications;
  • Creation and printing of customizable test reports with logo and company details, values and comments, photographs of the indentations analysed (using any printer connected to the system);
  • Possibility of combining a barcode scanner to scan sample barcodes, making all the information relating to the product immediately accessible at the time of testing.

Computer system

High-performance PC with pre-installed optical analysis and management software

  • Integrated Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10®;
  • Keyboard, mouse and 24" Full HD monitor included.

Optical acquisition

  • Turret: 5 positions, with automatic transmission;
  • High quality optical lenses for optimal observation of the indentations;
  • Energy-saving LED lighting for natural colour vision;
  • 5Mpx USB 3.0 high definition camera.

Movement of the test sample:

by means of a micrometric handwheel with built-in reducer with recirculating ball bearing guide – to offer high precision and stability.

  • Possibility to perform stitching and multiple tests in total comfort, thanks to the micrometric XY table with manual movement assisted by the software;
  • Large working area: optimal for handling both small samples and medium-large specimens.
