Barcol hardness tester 934-1 is applied to test the hardness of Aluminum, Aluminum alloys, Copper, Copper alloys, Fiber Reinforced Plastics and rigid plastics etc. Featured with 100 scales, much more sensitive than Webster hardness testers applied in Aluminum alloys industry. No supporting required. Can test from only one side of the workpiece. No need to move or support the workpiece. Used to test super large and thick workpieces and assembly parts. Easy conversion. The test results can be converted to HB, HR, HV and HW easily through conversion table.
Put the specimen between the anvil and the indenter and press down the handle until the bottom is felt. At the time the dial indicator will point at a reading which is the hardness value obtained. Excessive pressure beyond this limit will not damage the tester, but it is unnecessary. Hold tight the handle when reading the value. Any torsion or movement will make the reading incorrect during the test.
