Micropixel Vickers hardness tester

RELIABILITY THAT PAYS OFF // A SIMPLE AND ECONOMICAL HARDNESS TESTER, BUT OF GREAT QUALITY

The Vickers Micropixel hardness tester range was created in response to the need to offer less prohibitively expensive and more accessible products.  How often do we buy products that are overly complex and have too many accessories (often making them too expensive), when all we really need is an instrument that is simple in its essential features? To each their own needs! This is why with the Vickers Micropixel hardness tester range we’ve adopted a “less is more” philosophy.  Because, sometimes, having a minimal instrument is the best advantage.

We have decided to think of you, and your need to save money. But not on everything. Not on quality. We have made some choices for you. We have chosen to have manual sample focusing, while letting our software guide you. And we have decided not to motorize the XY axes. That’s where we have saved. And we did it for you: to offer you a precise and reliable Vickers hardness tester, built entirely in Italy using all our know-how and top-quality components. We haven’t given up on anything here.

COMFORT AND RELIABILITY FIRST // AN ESSENTIAL AND INDISPENSABLE HARDNESS TESTER

Maximum performance, minimum cost. Having a minimal hardness tester does not mean using an instrument stripped of its technological aspects and comfort. Quite the contrary. 

Promoting essentiality without compromising on engineering reliability and the ease of use that the technology can offer is our aim with our Vickers Micropixel hardness testers.

This is why we have included top of the range technologies for performing Vickers tests, such as the motorized multi-position rotating turret, which allows you to quickly change the lens and the indenter. Like the load cells with Closed Loop control, to apply even the lowest force with unparalleled precision.

MINIMAL DESIGN // AN ERGONOMIC AND INTUITIVE HARDNESS TESTER FOR COMFORTABLE USE AND IMMEDIATE RESULTS

The design of the Vickers Micropixel hardness tester is accurate down to the smallest detail: ergonomics and intuitiveness are combined to offer you a pleasant user experience. Performing Vickers tests is simple and straightforward, with an automatic test cycle.

The controls and the management and optical analysis software have been developed following the “less is more” principle, to make the hardness testing process as intuitive as possible, without renouncing to advanced functions for the more experienced users.

MADE IN ITALY // CONSTANT INTERACTION BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR HARDNESS TESTER

Micropixel is a Vickers hardness tester completely conceived, designed and manufactured in Italy by highly qualified technicians.

For us, certifying our made in Italy means providing quality, reliability, creativity and empathy. Because technology not focussed on human interactivity is wasted technology.

READY FOR USE // A TURNKEY MEASURING INSTRUMENT THAT IS IMMEDIATELY OPERATIONAL

Years of experience gained working with leading companies in our technological and engineering world have allowed us to refine our skills and put all our know-how at your disposal. That’s why we love to create turnkey hardness testers without precluding any freedom of customization. Simply ready to use and operational. Without wasting time and effort on time-consuming configuration processes.

Our Vickers Micropixel hardness tester is available in three versions, highlighting the immediacy of use of each instrument of the range.

FREEDOM OF CUSTOMIZATION // A HARDNESS TESTER THAT MEETS YOUR NEEDS WITHOUT LIMITATIONS

We are sure that you must now be wondering how “ready for use” and “customisation freedom” can coexist. Isn’t that a contradiction? Let us tell you a little anecdote. A few years ago, one of our customers needed to perform spot Vickers tests on extremely thin specimens: metal pins.

We didn’t just offer them the standard version of the Micropixel that best suited their needs: we integrated it with a piece of equipment specially developed to make Vickers tests possible on their “special” samples.

The customer thus benefited from a double saving of time and energy: not only did they not have to configure the entire Vickers hardness tester with lenses, indenters and various accessories, but they also directly received the solution for their specific needs. This is because we at Axiotek are both designers and manufacturers of our measuring instruments: we do not have to interface with anyone to customize them.

In short, “ready for use” and “customisation freedom” coexist side by side with a single goal: to make your life easier.
