Founded in 1976, Indentec Hardness Testing Machines Ltd became part of the ZwickRoell Group in 2000. As the competence centre for Rockwell testing within the ZwickRoell Group Indentec develops and manufactures machines for Rockwell hardness testing as well as calibration test blocks for wider hardness methods. The design, development and manufacture of reliable and robust Rockwell hardness machines requires expertise in mechanical, electronic and software engineering. The deep knowledge of Rockwell hardness testing means Indentec will deliver high quality standard products and an efficient customisation programme.
Rockwell hardness machines measure hardness of materials by applying an indenter to a surface using an accurate load and measuring the depth of penetration of the indenter. This process requires precision in the application and control of the load and precise measurement of the depth of the indentation. The expertise developed at Indentec has produced a range of Rockwell hardness machines that present these precise qualities whilst remaining robust and reliable. The product range covers fixed weight machines and electronic closed loop force control machines.
Our range of fixed weight machines cover the full range of Rockwell Hardness testing. The range includes Superficial Rockwell, Rockwell and combined Rockwell (Superficial and Rockwell). The use of a fixed weight for creating the applied load means performance is not sensitive to temperature, drift or electrical noise influence that could affect or bias alternative technologies.
Our range of electronic closed loop machines cover the full range of Rockwell testing. The range covers Superficial Rockwell, Rockwell and combined Rockwell (Superficial and Rockwell) ranges. In addition the electronic force control machines feature specific applications for polymers and flooring. The use of electronic control loop technology produces a flexible Rockwell machine with specific advantages such as custom calibration and improved data handling.
Indentec produces a wide range of metal test blocks for the calibration of hardness test machines. These are produced in our facility in Brierley Hill and calibrated in our own UKAS accredited laboratory.
Our engineers have not only developed and implemented reliable testing systems, they have also gained a wealth of experience in various application areas, test environments, test types and testing systems. Please continue to share your testing challenges with us so that we can offer you the right solution in the future as well.
