    Mitech MHVS-Z Series Digital Automatic Turret Vickers Hardness Tester, based on the principle that positive quadrangular pyramid diamond indenter presses the surface of thesample to produce indentation.By measuring the diagonal length of the indentation to achieve the measurement of the hardness of the material can be for small specimens, thin specimens, surface coating, heat treatment of the workpiece surface Vickers hardness test. With stable performance, strong structure, high reliability, simple operation, digital displayadopt high magnification optical measurement system, adjust the cold light source, photoelectric sensing technology and computer-aided means it has a powerful function. It is widely used in the fields of metal processing, electronics industry, mold parts, watch manufacturing, engineering quality inspection and so on. It is an ideal hardness tester for material research and testing.

    Function & application

    Small, thin specimen.

    Surface heat treatment workpieces.

    Surface coating

    Glass, ceramics, agate, artificial gemstones and other more brittle, hard non-metallic materials

    Working Principle

    Micro-Vickers (or Knoop) hardness test principle is that put the provisions of the positive pyramid diamond indenter into the sample surface(with fixed experimental force) and maintain a certain length (holding), and then unloading. Finally, there is a positive quadrangular pyramid or kenup indentation with a square surface on the surface of the specimen. Then we can attain the area of indentation via measuring the length of the diagonal by a micrometer eyepiece. Then the corresponding Vickers (or Knoop) hardness values are obtained.

    Usually Vickers hardness values can be converted according to the following formula

    HV=constant×test force / indentation surface area0.1891 Fd 


    HV, Vickers hardness symbols   

    F, test force   

    d, the arithmetic mean of of the two diagonal d1, d2

    Working Conditions

    Operation Temperature1828℃

    Relative Humidity≤65%;

    In an environment free from vibration,no corrosive medium.

    Installed on a flat basis.

    Instrument Features

    Operating Method and Attentions

    Instrument Maintenance

    Read the manual carefully before using the instrument. Learn the operation steps and       attentions to avoid damage the instrument or personal safety accidents caused by improper operation;

    The instrument should be carried at the bottom of the handling, to prohibit cross. Before loading, please unplug the power plug, fixed measuring lever and remove the weight and boom;

    Carefully remove the shockproof tape for protecting the indenter when installed otherwise the accuracy of indenter positioning is not high;

    The surface of the test piece should be smooth, no dirt, scale, pits and significant processing traces;

    Machine add unloading test power, it is forbidden to turn the variable load the handwheel, such as rotating dislocation can lead to internal gear, chaos test force, and even cause damage to items within the machine;

    Diamond indenter and indenter are the core of the instrument, the operation should be careful not to touch the pressure head 

    The indenter should be kept clean when used to ensure the accuracy of the test. If the indenter is stained with oil or dust and other stains, can be used cotton with absorbent (industrial) or ether in the top of the indenter carefully wipe clean

    When not in use for a long time should cover dust cover, in order to prevent dust into the machine interior, hardness block, ball head after using coated with anti-rust oil, prevent rust;

    After a long idle time, the electrical components should be preheated before testing

    Conducted at least once a year instrument verification, to ensure the accuracy of the hardness tester

    When replacing the fuse or removing the weight, turn off the power first;

           Don’t disassemble the instrument without authorization, maintenance related matters please contact MITECH after-              sale service department, 4000600280
