Leading portable hardness testing solutions

Leeb, Rockwell and UCI

Proceq's Equotip enable the inspection of almost any object, polished parts and heat-treated surfaces. The hardness measurements are made by using the dynamic rebound testing method according to Leeb, the static Portable Rockwell hardness test and the Ultrasonic Contact Impedance (UCI) method. The rugged Swiss Made hardness testers are designed for portable hardness testing in the lab, in the workshop, at production facilities or on site. Proceq's latest innovation is Equotip Live featuring a wireless impact device, mobile app, real-time data sharing and cloud backup.

Since Proceq invented the Leeb test principle in 1975, Equotip has become established as a globally recognized measuring technique for portable hardness testing and a de facto industry standard. A wide range of different impact devices, as well as a comprehensive selection of test blocks and accessories cover most applications.
