Micro Hardness Testing HM 2000

Martens hardness testing: fischerscope HM2000 is used for for bulk material and coatings thicker than 1 μm (0.04 mils). It is basically automated nanoindentation measuring system with measuring head HT2000. This martens hardness testing: fischerscope HM2000 is designed precisely for instrumented indentation test method and checked as per ISO 14577 standards. Moreover, it is ideally suitable for quality assurance, measurements in development, incoming inspection and process control.

  • The measuring head of Fischerscope HM2000 contains the test load generating unit, the indenter and the position measurement unit.
  • It modular design allows future upgradation.
  • Ample load and depth range; can be used for a broad range of applications from polymeric automotive clear coats to cermaic diamond-like carbon coatings
  • Motorized z-axis and fully automated surface detection for higher productivity
  • Enhanced high resolution optical system with autofocus and multiple objective turret
  • Custom granite structure for enhanced frame stiffness and low noise floor
  • Measure on smallest structures, cross-sections with high precision programable X/Y-table
  • Minimal sample preparation due to large working area and open layou
  • Measurement of dark surfaces without sample pretreatment
  • Vickers, Berkovich or spherical indentors are available
  • Optional: active damping table to reduce influence of vibrations
  • Easy operation through the customizable WIN-HCU® Software
Typical areas of application are:
  • Paint, synthetic or hard material coatings (PVD, CVD)
  • Electroplated coatings (decorative, functional)
