Full-Automatic Vickers Hardness Tester FV-ARS 9000 is a more innovated Vickers hardness testing system

Features of Full-automatic Vickers hardness Tester

FV-ARS 9000 is a Full-automatic Vickers Hardness Testing Machine manufactured by Future-Tech – Made in Japan

Sampleʼs Tilted Surface Tracing Function

  • Easy setting of tilt angle enables to control Z-axis along the sampleʼs tilted surface.
  • This function enhances “Load applying accuracy”, shortens “Auto-focus time” and protects a sample and lens/indenter from a collision.

Measured Image Saving Function

  • You can check the images of all the measured indents.
  • By re-measuring the indent’s images, you can modify data easily.

Various Measurement Patterns

A series of measurement operations: Continuous Indentation – Focusing – Reading – Data Record: Just by selecting a measurement pattern, all testing will be
full-automatic with high speed.

Data Processing Software

The capability of Reading unclear indents on an un-mirror surface has been improved by more advanced Data Processing Software.

Various Data Output Format and Statistical Processing

  • Case Depth of indicated HV Hardness can be displayed instantaneously on the Chart after continuous Measurements on Carbonized Layer.
  • Various Data Output available – Measurement Data, Hardness Distribution Chart, Case Depth, Max. Value, Min. Value, Mean Value, Dispersion, Standard Deviation, Coefficient of Variation, OK-NG Criteria, Conversion Data, etc.
  • Display and Output of Color Profile Picture linked with Hardness Values – Standard Function.
