Hardness Inspection

Hardness Inspection / Testing is a measure of how resistant solid matter is to various kinds of permanent shape change when a force is applied. Correct hardness values are important as an item that is too hard might be over brittle and prone to fracture, whereas as item that is not hard enough may deform under stress.

PTS Hardness Inspection / Testing can be carried out on a wide range of materials with a range of equipment including: Poldi, Vickers Diamond and Equotip with results given in a wide range of values such as: Hardness Brinell, Vickers, Rockwell B & Rockwell C. Inspection can be carried out either in a workshop, on in service items at sites around the country or at our purpose built laboratory in the midlands.
