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-D5 is the flagship of Axiotek: equipped with a software with the most advanced and innovative functions currently available on the market, it’s a benchmark in the execution of micro and macro-hardness tests.

Thanks to the processing of the image based on an algorithm developed entirely by Axiotek, the software 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.

  • CAD System: Free drawing mode on the test surface that allows the creation of orientation geometries and fingerprint reading (on request);
  • Welding tests in compliance with international standards: to determine the hardness values of the material, the heat-affected zone (HAZ) and the filler material according to ISO 9015 and ISO 22826 (on request).
  • 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.
  • Connected to the 200x100 XY table with CNC control It is simultaneously compatible up to 8 test-pieces of Ø 30mm and it allows the execution of multiple tests in great simplicity.
  • Autofocus: use it wherever the measuring head is, so as to maximize uptime and minimize 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;
  • 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;
  • 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 +1 positions, with automatic transmission;
  • Panoramic lens and additional camera for ultra-fast image capture;
  • 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;
  • Two 5Mpx USB 3.0 high definition cameras.

Movement of the test sample:

automatic handling and accuracy of the test sample

thanks to the convenient XY board, it is the measuring head
that automatically “search” the test sample. In addition, through the laser pointer, the identification of the exact test point will be more immediate.

Accessories included

  • a Vickers indenter;
  • 3 lenses – 10X, 20X and 40X -;
  • a panoramic lens;
  • a CNC controlled XY table, size 200×100 and compatible with up to 8 Ø 30mm specimens simultaneously.
