The universal Vickers hardness tester for simple test applications in your lab

The DuraScan G5 series with which all Vickers, Knoop and Brinell test tasks can be carried out in a load range between 0.25 g and 62.5 kg features a high level of efficiency, flexibility and process reliability. The entire test sequence, from setting the indent to displaying the hardness value is always fully automated, eliminating operator influence to the greatest possible extent. The DuraScan models 10 G5/ 20 G5 are ideal as semi-automatic hardness testers for simple applications.

Innovation in image evaluation
Operating the hardness tester


The groundbreaking standard load range of the DuraScan G5 from 10 g to 62.5 kg significantly expands the application range of the hardness tester. It can optionally be extended to a range from 0.25 g to 62.5 kg, subsequently at any time! The force is continuously and precisely monitored electronically using a series of electronic force measuring sensors. This ensures that, in addition to Vickers and Knoop, Brinell tests can also be performed in accordance with the standards.

With the new patented rapid traverse for the height adjustment, the height of the test unit can be adjusted at 10x speed, saving valuable time when adjusting to different specimen heights. The scanning function ensures automatic positioning of the test unit to the perfect working distance—the camera image is immediately focused, providing the highest level of efficiency in the lab.

Intuitive ecos Workflow Touch operating software

ecos Workflow Touch provides an efficient, intelligent solution for all conventional hardness testing tasks. The user is guided step-by-step through the measuring process all the way to data backup. The intuitive user interface shortens familiarization time and reduces operating errors.

From simple single measurements and curve measurements to data storage and reporting, everything is possible with ecos Workflow Touch—minimumeffort guaranteed!

Innovation in image evaluation

The 10 Mpix camera used in all devices of the DuraScan G5 series sets new standards in image quality. Intelligent use of the high-resolution camera chip allows a 4x zoom without compromising quality. This innovative solution covers a wide range of applications with very few lenses. In order to maximize this potential, the DuraScan G5 only uses lenses that offer maximum optical resolution, reducing investment and setup costs. The proven fully automatic evaluation process reliably regulates the brightness of the image and automatically evaluates the indentation.

Operating the hardness tester

DuraScan 10 G5 and DuraScan 20 G5 are operated via a modern capacitive 10” touchscreen with brilliant image reproduction. The surface made of mineral glass is significantly more resistant to scratches than plastic surfaces. It goes without saying that only components that have been developed for use in an industrial environment are used.

The DuraScan 10 G5 provides a plane anvil that covers all the requirements for quick and simple single measurements. The DuraScan 20 G5 is expanded through the inclusion of a manual X-Y cross slide, enabling reliable series measurements. Optional digital spindles are also available.
