Metal Hardness Testing

The inventor of the Leeb rebound technique has put its many years of experience into the development of the famous Equotip – Proceq’s product family for metal hardness testing. Proceq revolutionized the market in 1975 when it launched the first Equotip.

The Equotip 550 is the most versatile all-in-one solution for portable hardness testing. 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. 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. 

The Equotip Piccolo 2 and Bambino 2 are both suited for on-site hardness checks of metals where the test indentation should be as small as possible. The Equotip Piccolo 2 offers the same features for metal hardness testing, but offers additionally user defined hardness conversions and the Proceq invented software Piccolink.
