Future Tech FM-ARS-F Automatic Micro Hardness Tester
The FM-ARS-F is a fully automatic micro hardness tester equipped with a large array of features to ensure precise and accurate hardness measurement readings. The FM-ARS-F has a variety of measurement patterns and combined with the X-Y stage controls make this a very user-friendly system. This machine is part of a comprehensive range and can be upgraded with a large variety of accessories combined with some very sophisticated data processing software that provides various data output formats and statistical processing.
The Future Tech FM-ARS-F micro hardness tester range of hardness testers are based on classical dead weight micro hardness testers with options for load range and user interface. The system can be specified to customer requirements and budgets offers a solution for automatic micro hardness testing for applications such as control of heat treatment.
The fully automatic FM-ARS-F offers many features for improved testing of materials for quality control or research.
