Hardness measurement is the method used to measure and evaluate the hardness of a material, a mechanical property that is widely used in the specification and comparison of materials, in companies in different industry segments.
Among its industrial uses of QAQC are
- Obtain a comparative knowledge of the mechanical resistance of a given material.
- Evaluate the result of the heat treatments.
- Evaluate the abrasion and erosion wear resistance of materials.
The hardness test is considered a non-destructive test. It leaves a small mark on the inspected component that does not compromise its technical performance and is one of the most popular mechanical tests in the industry.
Benefits of hardness testing:
- Low cost
- It can be applied to samples of various dimensions and shapes.
- Can be done on site
