BRINELL HARDNESS TESTER

Brinell hardness tester for train wheels

INTEGRAL WHEELS

Special hardness tester Integral Wheels for train

This special hardness tester Integral Wheels is a Brinell Hardness testing machine for train wheels and railway. Fully automatic Brinell test cycles up to 3000kgf with motorized turret, automatic loading, auto-focus and automatic reading. In order to make the operator’s work as easy as possible, it is equipped with a motor-driven rotating table, which can also move horizontally to load the wheel easily.

Test loads

from 10 kgf to 3000 kgf (98.07 to 29421 N)

Brinell ISO 6506 / ASTM E-10

HBW 1/10 – HBW 1/30 – HBW 2.5/15.625 – HBW 2.5/31.25 – HBW 2.5/62.5 – 2.5/187.5 – 5/25 – 5/62,5 – 5/125 – 5/250 – 5/750 – 10/100 – 10/250 – 10/500 – 10/1000 – 10/1500 – 10/3000

Fully motorized and automatic, the test is not affected by operator influences and can easily be used by operators of every level

AN EYE INTO THE FUTURE

BENEFITS

  • Easy loading of heavy samples thanks to the moving table
  • Fast measuring process with considerable time saving
  • Considerable reduction of operator working time
  • Automatic test positioning with high precision
  • Hardness testing on 100% of production

AUTOMATION

In order to make the operator’s work as easy as possible, this special hardness tester INTEGRAL WHEELS is equipped with a motor-driven rotating table, which also moves frontward to load the wheel easily.
By setting a fully automatic Brinell cycle (e.g. 3 tests at 120°, 4 at 90°, etc.) the motor-driven rotating table allows the tests to be carried out by programming the test points, working with the highest precision and considerably reducing the working time.

THE EXCLUSIVE MILLING TOOL

Special hardness tester Integral Wheels is also equipped with a sample preparation system which is directly installed on the head of the instrument.

This is a milling tool included as a TURRET POSITION which prepare the surface of untreated parts before the hardness test. Our special milling system leaves a mild edge, without sharp corners. The milling depth can be programmed in the software, with centesimal precision. It is possible to mill parts up to 65 HRC and small parts without any fixtures, thanks to our special clamping system.

Save time! Only 30 seconds to get the Brinell result!

    8. Data enter via code bar scanning
    9. Outputs via RS232, USB and Ethernet
    10. Data exchange with management system MES
    11. Ready for Industry 4.0

MAIN FEATURES

XY ROTATING TABLE

Bring the table to the front to load the sample with your lifting system. Move the stage to the back, make a Brinell test and then rotate the table to test the wheel at different angles.  Fully motorization available.

MOTORIZED TURRET

Multiples slots for different ball indenters and magnification lenses. Auto-rotating and tool switching for a completely automatic single or multi indentation measurement cycle. Bigger turret available with surface preparation tool.

AUTO-READING AND AUTO-FOCUS

Automatic indentation reading through camera. To make the test just push the start button: the hardness tester will make the contact, apply the test force, switch to the objective, auto-focus, read the indent and give the result.

MOTORIZED TURRET 8P

Optional: Up to 8 slots (or more) for different hardness scales indenters, different optic lenses, laser and even a milling surface preparation tool. Auto-rotating and auto-tool-switching for a complete automatic measurement cycle. For single or multi hardness test methods using only one tester.

CLAMPING SYSTEM

Optional: Secure contact with the specimen is always maintained, even in the unlikely event of any specimen movement during the operation cycle. The clamping system assures complete stability of any test piece throughout the test cycle, even if it’s oiled, rusty or dirty.

TOUCHSCREEN

Easy joystick and buttons control. Large capacity Hard Disk and PC assure infinite performance as well as remote control for easy assistance everywhere. USB and Ethernet outputs. Connect to database networks, PC’s and printers, to download data or for final custom reports.
