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.
Delivery, Installation and training will have to be quoted separately.
    • 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.

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

      Various Measurement Patterns.

      Intelligent Sample Profile Memory Function allows complicated Random measurements or Teaching Measurement along with the edge of specimen - Standard Function

      Various Patterns can meet customers’ requirements : Straight Line / Zigzag / Circle /Arc / Line Set / Random / Matrix / Teaching / etc.

      Capability of Reading unclear Indents on un-mirror surface has been improved by more advanced Data Processing Software

      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.
