Why Use Rockwell Hardness Testing?

The Rockwell Hardness Test is appropriate for determining the hardness of steel and a variety of other materials. The machine can accommodate samples of different sizes and in different hardness ranges.



The test itself determines hardness alone, but the hardness findings correlate to other performance properties of a material such as strength and wear resistance. 

Clients reach out to us for Rockwell Hardness Testing for failure analysis, inspecting incoming metals received from suppliers, & weld evaluation.
