Material Testing

With so many materials and applications in the world, you need to know that you can trust your products are durable and do what your engineers designed them to do. Manufacturers rely on results from hardness testing and international safety standards require materials to have a specific hardness or stiffness. Different metals need to be tested according to different hardness testing standards, whether it’s using a Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers or a Universal machine. Bowers Group have a variety of portable, bench and floor models in our product range to provide a solution for your hardness testing needs, whatever it may be.

  • INNOVATEST Brinell BIOS Scan
    The Innovatest BIOS Brinell is a handheld optical scanner that can be connected to a standard laptop, tablet or any other device running a Windows 10 operating system. Different materials have different finishes; for Brinell fast light adjustment is mandatory. The scroll wheel provides an ultra-fast way of experimenting with light settings to get the correct one; this is then stored for the current application. The BIOS™ has a camera and electronics that are built around a telecentric lens, with an adjustable direct LED light module that illuminates the shadow areas around the indents. This creates a high-resolution image for fast and repeatable measurement. The telecentric lens allows for the highest possible accuracy to be obtained time and again. No special skills are required to operate the BIOS, making this an easy tool for any operator to utilise. The Innovatest Bios system is designed to make the daily testing of Brinell indents faster, more accurate and reliable. Data can be saved in a CSV file, for a simple import to MS applications such as Word and Excel for further analysis or reporting.
