'FIE' Computerised Hardness Tester is a simple and accurate means to produce automatically measure the diamond indentation to give Vickers hardness numbers.
These testers are suitable for measuring the hardness of precision metallic parts with wide testing range - from soft to hard and their accurate results are widely acclaimed. These testers strictly confirm to IS 1754 - 2002.

The robust machine frame is designed to accommodate the high precision loading.
Specimen is placed on a testing table. The test cycle is fully automatic. The accurate load is applied on a diamond indentor by means of a lever and weights. After a specific lapse of a time the load is removed automatically. The image is digitized using a CCD camera fitted on the machine and is captured by PC. The diagonals of the indentation are automatically measured by PC to give the Vickers Hardness Number.
