Case depth measurement and analysis
Assessment of the case depth is a significant test for specification of the correct heat treatment of metal parts. Depending on frequency and importance of such test one of the below instrumentation can be chosen for its testing. Classic hardness meter equipped with a camera and software enabling manual measurement of the hardness course represents a simple procedure for measurement of the case depth. A perfect solution for hardness testing is automated testing system providing line, areal and serial measurement of tested parts. Should speed of the case depth testing be a decisive criterion a special hardness meter measuring depth of a layer from a single indentation is applied.
