Portable Hardness Testing

Proceq's portable hardness testers enable the testing of heavy, large and permanently installed parts as well as of small, light or polished parts. The hardness measurements are made using the widely used and highly appreciated dynamic rebound testing method according to Leeb or the Portable Rockwell hardness test. The metal hardness testers are designed for portable hardness testing in the lab, in the workshop, at production facilities or on site. In addition to the professional solutions Equotip 550 Leeb, Equotip 550 Portable Rockwell and Equotip 550 UCI, the Equotip Bambino 2 and Equotip Piccolo 2 is the perfect equipment if you have a less frequent measuring requirement. Furthermore, the Equotip Bambino 2 allows the metal hardness test to be performed in confined spaces and recessed surfaces by means of a long, slim testing nozzle.  

Our Swiss made products provide measurement results in the native Leeb scale but may also be converted to all commonly used hardness units such as Vickers, Rockwell or Brinell. A wide range of different impact devices, as well as a comprehensive selection of accessories covers most applications. 

Equotip 550 Leeb

Equotip 550 Portable Rockwell

Dynamic rebound technique by Leeb for testing heavy, large or already installed parts

The Leeb hardness principle is based on the dynamic (rebound) method and is best suited for on-site testing of heavy, large or already installed parts. 

Rockwell static test method for scratch-sensitive, polished or thin parts

The Portable Rockwell test principle follows the traditional Rockwell static test method which is particularly suited for scratch-sensitive, polished or thin parts as well as for profiles and pipes. 

Equotip 550 UCI

Equotip Bambino 2

Equotip 550 UCI is suited for objects with any shape and heat-treated surfaces (weld inspection; heat affected zones).
