Product Summary

The CHD Master is a fully automatic micro hardness tester for performing Vickers micro hardness testing on 1 mounted or unmounted sample at a time. The CHD Master is a special machine and software configuration meant to provide an entry into automatic micro hardness testing. Users can perform multiple traverses on a single sample, but you are limited to 1 sample at a time on the stage. There is also no overview camera system available on this model.

An ultra-precise load cell controls the test force for reliable micro hardness testing results between 50 grams and 10 kg.


Amazing 3D CAD User Interface

Intuitive, structured and professional. The Qpix Control2 software ushers in a new generation of hardness testing software. It has been developed based on customer input and feedback to guarantee maximum user-friendliness. Extensive use of 3D CAD drawings provide the user with a unique experience that is easy to follow.

Auto-stop vs. Test All Points

Users are in total control of how the micro hardness tester performs its testing.

When using Auto-stop, the tester will indent, then read, then indent, then read, allowing the test to stop once a specific hardness value is reached. Users can also program the number of indents to perform after this limit has been hit.

The other method is to perform all indents first, then optically read all. The choice is yours.

Auto-Snap and Edge Recognition

Auto-Snap is a standard feature for quickly creating test patterns. Simply drag the pattern close to the sample edge and the software will automatically align the traverse.

The optional Edge Recognition module is the perfect add-on if you will be using templates for same parts testing extensively. With the Edge Recognition module you only need to roughly position your saved testing template to the sample edge and the software will automatically align the test points for you.

Hardness Color Maps in 2D/3D

The optional 2D/3D Mapping Module allows you to create beautiful hardness color maps in 2D or 3D for use in presentations.

Users can easily create a contour line for their sample and define the density of the testing grid allowing test patterns of 100s or 1000s of indents depending on how many data points are desired.

Closed Loop Load Cell

Electronically controlled test forces ensure quick and precise hardness testing as well as rapid test method changeover (maintenance free) and automatic

6 Place Motorized Turret

The 6 place motorized turret is standard in all models and offers space for various test methods. For example it can be equipped with 3 different objectives and the corresponding indenters for Vickers, Knoop or Brinell.
