Internal measurement specialist Bowers Metrology has launched the EW-4000 series of micro/macro Vickers, Knoop and Brinell hardness testers.

The flexible bench testers combine practical design with high specifications, according to the company.

Closed-loop, load-cell technology and a patent-pending force feedback system ensure rapid EW-4000 test results with high levels of accuracy.

The tester’s closed-loop system applies a given force, calculates, filters and controls digital data in a 32-bit embedded CPU system.

The elimination of cumbersome weights and complex mechanical control systems enables the EW-4000 to achieve accuracy, repeatability and reliability at an affordable price, Bowers Metrology said.

To enable each customer to receive a hardness tester that exactly matches their needs, the flexible EW-4000 series has four-position turrets that can be customised by using a range of available indenters, objectives, stages and video systems.

Meeting all applicable EN ISO and ASTM standards, the Bowers EW-4000 series allows users to buy a basic system and upgrade at a later date.
