Hardness Testing

Hardness Testing to verify the heat treatment of a forging

Solmet Technologies provides hardness testing to verify the heat treatment of a forging and determine whether or not the forging has the properties necessary for the intended use.

Hardness is normally determined by a material’s resistance to deformation when performing the test. The technician applies a fixed load onto the test item and the depth of penetration is measured by different means and converted to different units. The smaller the indentation left by the fixed load, the harder the material. At Solmet, we perform hardness testing in-house per customer specification.
