Hardness Testing of Metals
Hardness can mean many things to different people in different industries.
In the metals industry, it might mean the materials resistance to permanent deformation.
To a metallurgist, it means resistance to penetration.
To engineers, it could be resistance to wear, abrasion, or scratching.
And to the machinist, it means ease or resistance regarding machining.
Regardless of your industry, Hardness Testing it is most commonly used to determine tensile and/or yield strength.

About Verichek’s Hardness Testing & Equipment
Rockwell Hardness Testing
Verichek uses the e-dynatest portable Rockwell hardness tester to perform Rockwell hardness testing. The e-dynatest allows for testing a wide range of metal without changing the indenter. If you require another major scale such as Brinell, Knoop, Leeb or Vickers the results from the Rockwell testing can be converted.
Testing Location Options
All of our metal analysis testing services are customized to your needs. Depending on the number of pieces you have for Hardness Testing and their size and weight, you might be able to send the metal to our in-house metal testing lab or require us to perform on-site testing visit.
