STEPS TO AUTOMATIC MEASUREMENTS

Portable hardness tester RSDMAG: how does it work?

Pulling one single start lever the hardness result will appear in a few seconds. Portable hardness tester RSDMAG is so simple and easy to use that there is no need for any particular preparation by the operator:

  1. Identify the test area and place the hardness tester on the sample, no matter the size or geometry
  2. Locking the base lever the magnet will strongly adhere to the test piece for the entire test cycle
  3. Start the test and in 4 seconds the result will appear on the display scale or dial gauge

The RSDMAG solves all types of problems. It can be used as a conventional hardness tester or as a portable system for on-site testing when test pieces are too large or too heavy for a bench hardness tester. The load cell inside has no impact force, while the AFFRI vertical movement permits a fully automatic test cycle in any direction, even upside down.

UNLIMITED TESTING POSITIONS

Thanks to the portable hardness tester RSDMAG with magnetic clamping base it is possible to perform hardness tests on very bulky samples directly in the production department. Try our portable hardness tester on: Oil and Gas pipes (also on-site), valves, tubes and steel bars, flat rolled steel plates, forged steel rings, rails, train wheels, drilling tools, walls and roofs.

Safe clamping on any sample!
From round to flat, with self-alignment of the indenter with the measurement axis

Operative at 360°!
Completely uninfluenced by direction so that it is operative even upside down

Very fast, even 3″ for one hardness test!
(adjustable dwell time)

HARSHNESS RESISTANT

Portable hardness tester RSDMAG can be used under difficult environmental conditions or in dirty and dusty places. The measurements are not affected by
humidity and the tester can be used in cloudy days and light rain.

Water-proof trolley. Transport case resistant to chemicals, humidity and dust. Resistant to harshest temperatures (-33°C / 90°C). Sealing O-Ring and self-oiling free running wheels. Telescopic handle with safe lock system. Three lift handles and four closing clips.

THE SOFTWARE

The software controls the whole instrument during the entire cycle avoiding operator errors: LCD screen, hard disk for data and statistics storage. Data outputs that connect to a printer or computer with an RS232C or USB connection. Hardness testing data are simultaneously shown on the LCD graphic display:

  • Detected values in various simultaneous scales
  • Average of the values with automatic updating
  • Battery level
  • Results according to the tolerance limits expressed both numerically and graphically
  • Programmable test preload and load timer
  • Statistics and Gauss diagram, sound signal to indicate the end of the cycle
  • Display the environment temperature and the date.

FROM PORTABLE HARDNESS TESTER TO BENCH-TOP

To convert the RSD MAG from a portable hardness tester to regular bench top instrument, it can be combined with two different size of stand support, 670H or 460L. This system fully conforms to hardness testing standards and allows testing in laboratory on small pieces and prepared samples without the need uf buying another hardness tester. Hardness measurements will result fast and easy as an AFFRI bench tester including the sample clamping system and the auto compensation of deflection thank’s to indenter and clamping hood vertical stroke.

Measurements will be fast and easy as for an AFFRI bench hardness tester including the clamping system and the auto-compensation of deflections.
