The 600 BDL Rockwell scale bench hardness tester, from Bowers, is said to provide the user with high standards of accuracy, reliability and durability at an extremely affordable price.
Boasting a rugged construction to help withstand the toughest of shop floor environments and a large working capacity, the 600 BDL is able to operate in Rockwell scales A, B, C, D, E, F, G, K, L, M, P, R, V.
With a system accuracy conforming to EN-ISO 6508 and ASTM-E18, the 600 BDL has a hardness resolution 0.1 of a Rockwell unit. It is able to operate under test loads of 60, 100 and 150 kgf, with available dwell times from 0-30 seconds in 5 second steps.
An OLED full colour, multi function display shows a progress bar for preload. Further displayed parameters include: preload applied; main load applied; dwell time; invalid reading; invalid measurement; invalid procedure and the Rockwell value, scale applied.
Standard delivery includes a comprehensive range of test anvils, indenters and test blocks, enabling the 600 BDL to undertake accurate Rockwell hardness testing procedures across a wide range of specimens.
Bowers is able to supply both a motorised and a Rockwell Superficial Scale variant of the hardness tester.
