Combined Hardness tester TKM‑459CE combi
Now your capabilities in non-destructive hardness testing of diff erent metal items are almost unlimited.
Combined Hardness tester TKM‑459CE combi - portable precision device with brand-new soﬅ ware.
Device is intended for non-destructive testing of production quality in metallurgy, mechanical engineering, aircraft, shipbuilding, atomic industry, oil and gas industry.
TKM-459CE combi controls hardness of following:
- Carbon and structural steels as well as other fine-grained materials
- Hard-surfaced items (cementation, nitride hardening, high frequency current hardening)
- Heat-resistant, corrosion-resistant, stainless steels
- Non-ferrous metals and alloys (cast iron, aluminium, bronze, brass)
- Electroplated coating (chrome, copper, nickel, zinc, tin), overlaying
- Items of complex configuration (gear teeth, shafts, pipes of any diameter, grooves, blind holes)
- Thin-walled and small-sized items
- Large items and heavy-duty equipment (gas pipelines, rails, construction elements)

Hardness testers modes
|By basic scales||Basic hardness units (HRC, HB, HV)||Hardness testing of the bulk of products|
|By additional calibrations to basic scales||By HRA, HRB, HSD scales and ultimate tensile strength||Hardness testing of high-alloy steels, special cast iron and nonferrous metals|
|By additional scales||Scales are programmed by the user||Special problems solving|
The parameters of the statistical processing of measurements
- Maximum, minimum, mean value, standard deviation from the mean.
- The average deviation from the values set by a user, results are more/less the values, the maximum deviation in the large/smaller side of the value.
- Number of results outside the upper/lower limit of range (user specified), maximum deviation from the upper/lower border.
- Automatic garbage results, incorrect measurement.
- Comparison of results of measurements in the series (the comparison charts on the display of the hardness tester).
