Product Summary

The CM-800AT is a highly configurable, user friendly hardness tester that can be tailored to your lab's needs now and into the future. This unit can be configured as a basic hardness tester where you read off the results one indent at a time, or it can be upgraded at at any point to make it into a fully automatic hardness tester complete with motorized stage, digital camera, computer and software.

Perform tests according to Vickers, Knoop and even light load Brinell. Automatic turret with 1 indenter and 3 objectives is standard for this model. Optional automatic turret with dual indenter and 4 objectives available only on the CM-800AT, allowing you to perform vickers and knoop tests without having to change out the indenter. Test loads range from 1 gf up to 2000 gf with 5 scales to choose from.

This version of the CM series hardness tester features the color LCD touch screen.
