Microhardness (Brinell)

One steel sample is submitted for hardness test.

PURPOSE

Demonstrate the ability of Clemex CMT to automatically perform and measure indentations. The technical report is linked at the bottom of this page (click the Download PDF link below).

RESULTS

The measurements were repeated on the 5 indents for three times. The average Brinell hardness in the center of the material is around 382 HB. Final results can be printed directly from Clemex CMT. Raw data can be exported in Excel format.
