Product Description

The MetalTek™ Model 3000—O features a hydraulic power pack and control circuit for effortless ease of loading and unloading.

The 3000—O incorporates a front panel mounted optical device having 14x magnification. The ball indentation is projected on the screen and is measured with a micrometer measuring system with 0.01 mm of resolution.

The penetrator and indentor assembly are gimbaled and project the diameter of the ball impression immediately after unloading the test piece.

This provides for improved efficiency by reducing the time required for impression measurement and generates an accurate Brinell Hardness determination.

The MetalTek™ Model 3000—O is ideally suited for the production testing environment and designed specifically to withstand heavy use. It is used to test the Brinell hardness of castings, forgings and flat, round or irregularly shaped metal specimens of all types.
