Fraud Blocker


Standard range of measurable forces:

10gf to 50kgf

Customizable on request to: 1gf; 5gf; 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 accuracy even at very low loads and are managed without inertia, with guaranteed accuracy.

Test cycle:

fully automatic hardness calculation to minimize human errors

The test cycle is fully automatic: after the fast autofocus, the indenter generates the indentation, the lens completes the optical analysis and the hardness value appears immediately on the PC monitor. The “automatic pilot” function allows the hardness tester to operate in total autonomy, completing stitching and multiple tests without the need for the operator to be present.

Management software and optical analysis: Vx Image®

XM70-D3 is one of our top-of-the-range instruments. It features a powerful software that thanks to the processing of the image based on an algorithm developed entirely by Axiotek 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 100x60 mm motorized XY table: to perform stitching and multiple tests by operating a single control (compatible with a single specimen, Ø 40mm);
  • CAD system: free drawing mode on the test surface that allows the creation of orientation geometry of execution and reading of footprints (on request);
  • Pattern setting at the click of a button - just move the mouse and we'll take care of the rest;
  • Automatic test surface scanning: ideal for hardness calculations on samples with complex geometries;
  • Touch focus: to activate the autofocus function irrespective of the position of the head, ensuring maximum operability and minimum error;
  • Dynamic collision avoidance system: ensures a safe assisted emergency stop to prevent damage to the machine and operators;
  • User management with different levels of access to the software settings;
  • Dynamic zoom with high definition vision;
  • Basic and advanced statistical processing functions;
  • 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 management and analysis software

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

Optical acquisition

  • Turret: 6 positions, with automatic transmission;
  • Maximum protection of lenses and indenter, with "retractable" system inside the measuring head;
  • 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

no manual movement required:the measuring head automatically “searches” for the sample, multiple tests are managed by the software with the help of the CNC controlled XY table.

Accessories included

  • a Vickers indenter;
  • 4 lenses – 2,5X; 10X; 20X and 40X -;
  • a 100×60 CNC controlled XY table compatible with a single specimen, Ø 40mm.
