Solmet Technologies offers a range of hardness and micro-hardness testing, performed in-house per customer specification. Hardness testing helps verify a forging’s metallurgical integrity to determine whether or not it has the properties necessary for the intended use.
About Hardness Testing
During hardness testing, Solmet’s skilled technicians apply a fixed load onto the test item and the depth of penetration is measured. The smaller the indentation left behind by the fixed load, the harder the material.
Common Hardness Tests
- Rockwell hardness – Measures the depth of penetration under varying load sizes, accounting for dwell time and elastic recovery.
- Brinell hardness - Single load hardness test most commonly used to test materials with coarse or rough structures.
Benefits of Hardness Testing
- Cost effective
- Can be performed on a variety of materials and dimensions
