DESIGNED FOR HARD WORK

ONE TOUCH MEASUREMENTS

LD3000AX is an automatic system for Brinell, Vickers, Rockwell and Superficial Rockwell hardness test methods in compliance with ASTM and ISO hardness standards. AFFRI System hardness testers achieve the highest level of load accuracy and measurement resolution available for hardness tests. Thanks to the AFFRI System, the real indentation measurement is guaranteed without any external interference in any condition.

The measurements are very easy, quick and absolute. The hardness test cycle is automatic and motorized in just one drive (button or icon):

  1. Automatic contact with the specimen
  2. Auto-active sliding clamping
  3. Autopreloading and loading
  4. Automatic switching to optic lens
  5. Autofocus by image scanning brightness
  6. Automeasure and result display
  7. Automatic return stroke at programmed distance

AUTO-CONTACT AND CLAMPING

  • The activation of the test cycle is automatic, it starts when the head makes contact with the specimen which is automatically recognized at any position within the vertical stroke.
  • The top surface referencing design minimizes errors caused by problems associated with dirt or scale.
  • This reduces sample preparation time and increases both accuracy and speed.

Vertical capacity from indenter to the base
300mm / 12″ (more on request)

Horizontal capacity from column to the indenter
190 mm / 7.4” (more on request)

The LD3000AX hardness tester is a robust, reliable system, designed to function even in hostile environments. Heavy and bulky samples can be easily placed using a forklift or overhead-traveling crane.

AUTO-COMPENSATION OF ALL DEFLECTIONS

When testing unstable samples or deflecting parts, the AFFRI System will follow the sample without losing contact thanks to its stroke for indenter and clamping hood.

Load forces are applied through load cells and controlled in “Closed Loop” with a frequency of 1 khz, assuring perfect linearity in every range. Results are not affected by any structural deflection, misalignment or vibration.

Accurate measurements on the first test, even in extreme conditions, eliminate the need for repeated tests. The R&R data is at the top of its class.

EXCLUSIVE MILLING TOOL

The LD3000AX hardness tester can be equipped with a sample preparation system which is directly installed on the head of the instrument.

THE HARDNESS SOFTWARE

The pre-installed software controls the whole instrument during the entire cycle avoiding operator errors:

  • Touchscreen gloves sensitive 15″
  • User-friendly software designed inhouse
  • Color highlighted results (low/ok/high)
  • Live statistics and graph
  • Programs of test settings
  • Results archives
  • Save images
  • Export results to PDF, TXT, CSV, DOC, XLS, and more
  • Data enter via code bar scanning
  • Outputs via RS232, USB, and Ethernet
  • Data exchange with management system MES

MAIN FEATURES

AUTOMATIC TURRET

Automatic two position turret with one indenter and one objective, easily changeable with manual screwing. Auto tool switching and auto indentation centering for a completely automatic hardness test cycle. (On request 8 position)

CLAMPING SYSTEM

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.

FOCUS DRIVE

Fully automatic hardness test cycle with a single start input for quick and accurate measurements. But, in some cases, the automatic measure and autofocus can be bypassed using manual focusing and manual reading.

AUTOFOCUS

Automatic focus adjustment for each optic with precise positioning at any magnification by mean of real image scanning brightness, at continuous step for infinite accuracy. This system assures high reading standards, reproducible focusing quotes and reduces reading time. Hardness results are not affected by subjectivity.

CAMERA AUTO-READING

From perfectly polished to rough & etched samples, the software automatically measure indents on any sample surface. Automatic light regulation on dark, opaque or polished samples. The software controls and adjusts the light and contrast to find the right combination and measure the indent.

PROTECTED DIAMOND INDENTER

The Affri diamond indenter has a life-span longer tanks to the special protective cup. This indenter retracts and moves down just after the test piece is clamped thereby minimizing the risk to accidental shock.
