Hardness testing is used in mechanical and materials engineering to test the hardness of a material, such as a metal. Hardness tests analyze a specific material and its properties and ascertain whether or not a given material is the best fit for the job. Hardness tests are used on multiple kinds of materials, including carbon fiber, stainless steel, and even plastic. These materials’ resistance to force determines their use, lifespan, and ability to cope with general wear and tear.
Portable hardness testers are suitable for conducting measurements in the field, including chemical utilities, small factories, and existing pipelines. Portable hardness testers are especially useful for immovable equipment that cannot be brought to a testing lab or have samples cut off. They can measure hardness directly on a manufactured detail and in hard-to-reach places.
