Rebound Hardness Tester
The rebound hardness is a portable instrument used for measuring the hardness of materials. Compact size and very sturdy, measures the Leeb hardness of metals in scale, Vickers, Brinell and calculation of tensile strength, with the memory of the measurements.
The tool allows to transfer data on dedicated software.

Comes with probe bounce "D", and set adapter rings that allow you to operate on all the concave and convex surfaces.

Principle of operation:
The principle of operation of durometers is almost identical for the various types: a tip shape varies, is pushed with a known force against the material to be tested, depending on the hardness of the material and directly proportional to it, this will penetrate to a certain depth . Measuring the penetration depth or the size of the impression it has an indication of the hardness of the material.
The rebound hardness, having within the correlation curves already entered, it returns directly the hardness of the material according to the selected scale.
