Mobile RSD MAG 

RSD MAG


Portable hardness tester with magnetic clamping base for Rockwell, Superficial Rockwell, Brinell and Vickers methods. The first portable hardness tester that conforms to ASTM E-18 E-10 E384 and ISO 6508 6507 6506 international hardness standards. RSD MAG is a digital portable hardness tester with a manual drive for an automatic test cycle with hardness direct reading. Thanks to its magnetic clamping base it is possible to perform hardness tests on very bulky samples directly in the production department. It is completely uninfluenced by direction so that it is operative up to 360° degrees of positioning, even upside down. Load forces are applied through a dynamometric load cell which eliminates problems associated with dead weight systems on traditional testers. It is not affected by any external source of vibration, and it does not need to be leveled. Safe clamping on any surface, from round to flat, with self-allignment of the indenter with the measurement axis. LCD screen, user friendly interface, real time statistics and graphs and large archive storage. This hardness tester ensures the highest accuracy and repeatability at every measurement. Hardness tests in laboratory or in loco on tubes, profiles, valves and bulky or small pieces. For all metals: iron, steel, tempered steel, cast iron, brass, aluminum, copper and metal alloys. Heat treatment, hardening, nitriding, cementation and hardfacing.

Für fast alle Metalle: Eisen, Stahl, vergüteter Stahl, Gusseisen, Messing, Aluminium, Kupfer und Metalllegierungen.

USER FRIENDLY


Pulling one single start lever the hardness result will appear in a few seconds. It is so simple and easy to use that there is no need for any particular preparation by the operator:

  • Identify the test area and place the hardness tester on the sample, no matter the size or geometry
  • Locking the base lever the magnet will strongly adhere to the test piece for the entire test cycle
  • Start the test and in 4 seconds the result will appear on the display scale or dial gauge

Safe clamping on any surface, from round to flat, with self-allignment of the indenter with the measurement axis. This hardness tester ensures the highest accuracy and repeatability at every measurement.

THE AFFRI SYSTEM


Load forces are generated by a dynamometric load cell wich assures long term accuracy and eliminates problems associated with dead weight systems on traditional testers. Results are not affected by any structural deflection, misalignment or vibration.

REPEATABILITY AND REPRODUCIBILITY


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

SOFTWARE RSD


FROM PORTABLE TO BENCH-TOP


To convert the RSD MAG from a portable to regular bench top hardness tester, based on your needs, it can be combined with two different size of stand support, 670H or 460L. This system fully conforms to hardness testing standards and allows testing in laboratory on small pieces and prepared samples without the need uf buying another hardness tester. Hardness measurements will result fast and easy as an AFFRI bench tester including the sample clamping system and the auto compensation of deflection thank’s to indenter and clamping hood vertical stroke.

 

CLAMPING SYSTEM


Accurate hardness measurements even on unstable, dirty or oily samples. The clamping hood applies constant pressure and prevent from accidentaly samples movements during the test cycle.

50 MM OF INDENTER AND CLAMPING HOOD STROKE


The measuring head follows the sample even in case of structural deflection. Easy and fast hardness measurements on different thicknesses without acting on the elevating screw.
