Micro macro Vickers Knoop hardness tester 


Automatic Hardness tester for micro and macro Vickers, Knoop, Brinell and Rockwell test methods. WIKI JS is the top-of-the-line of automation and accuracy for Vickers and Knoop hardness measurements in compliance with ASTM and ISO hardness standards. It is a fully motorized system for Case Hardness Depth test (CHD) on single or multiple samples in automatic cycle. Everything is automated, freeing users for other tasks and minimizing subjectivity associated with human intervention. Just map-out indentation traverses where they are required, set the load and press START, the hardness tester intelligently follows the predefined patterns, indents the sample, focuses when needed, measures, and generates data dynamically. Load forces are applied through load cells and electronically controlled in "Closed Loop" (Pat. AFFRI) with a frequency of 1 khz, assuring perfect linearity in every range, even on very low loads. For micro-macro Vickers and CHD case depth tests on all metals: iron, steel, tempered steel, cast iron, brass, aluminium, copper and metal alloys. Heat treatment, hardening, nitriding, cementation and hardfacing. Knoop test on ceramic and glass materials.

Motorized head and automatic test cycles

Vickers Knoop hardness tester motorized headThe measuring head approaches the specimen and begins the test, following every predefined pattern and performing each indentation, no matter the amount. Results are listed along with the corresponding indentation image, statistics and CHD charts.

Closed Loop (Pat. AFFRI)

Hardness tester Closed LoopLoad 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, vibration or problems associated with dead weight systems on traditional testers

Motorized turret

Vickers hardness tester turretHorizontally rotating turret with four slots for magnification lenses and two for indenters. All optical microscope objectives can be pre-installed and combined with indenters for every Vickers and Knoop hardness scales.

X/Y motorized table

Vickers Knoop hardness tester XY tableWith an accuracy of +/- 0.5 μm steps, reference points for patterns indentations can be positioned precisely where they are required. The table allows automatic multi-indentation test cycles on multiple samples with perfect positioning on the entire area.

Indenter stroke

Durometro durezza Vickers indenter strokeWIKI JS can perform reliable tests even on multilevel or misaligned sample surfaces.

Autofocus and image cleaning

Vickers indent reading autofocusWith software controlled focus, image cleaning, shading correction and DC regulated light source, reproducible results are obtained regardless of the number of indents measured. From perfectly polished to rough and etched samples, the auto-detection capabilities of WIKI JS allow measurements on a variety of sample surfaces.

Working station

Vickers Knoop hardness tester ConsoleSolid and compact workbench with a large locker to accomodate the computer, console and cables. Wide side table, suitable on right or left side, to be all within operator’s reach.

Exclusive design

Vickers Knoop hardness tester designComfortable and ergonomic work station built to help operator’s movements. This allows for an organized work station. Built-in side case to store and protect tester’s accessories.


Vickers Knoop hardness tester software

(1) High definition monitor 24”
(2) Clear view of the indentation with autofocus and auto cleaning of the surface’s image
(3) Get a real and detailed image of the sample and place patterns where you need to perform the case depth indentations
(4) See a list of each sample and each pattern. Save or import traverses, edit, move, copy and paste
Control the whole instrument with the mouse including dynamic movements on X/Y/Z axis at fast or slow speed. Accuracy of 0.5 μ/m per step


Auto focusing, automatic measuring and reporting, allows this system to function unattended for hours without interruption, saving time and money, thus increasing output and productivity.
