The First Name In Materials Testing


Tinius Olsen’s model FH-6 Micro Vickers, Vickers and Micro Brinell hardness testing capability. It’s an automatic Vickers hardness tester using the turret technology to hold up to two different indenters and four objectives which automatically selected and utilized when test is started.

FH-6 Material testing machine is capable of performing physical strength test in hardness on raw materials such as metal, plastics, large parts and small precision parts, it is a very versatile unit for the accurate and repeatable analysis of a material or components force and performance. Its 2 button control system allows ultra-fast pre-positioning and scroll wheel that provide control for fine adjustment on the focus positioning. This fine positioning is further enhanced by using a leadscrew rather than an Acme thread screw.

The FH-6 features a large internal touch screen in support of easy test selection and viewing of the hardness profile throughout the test in accordance with ASTM, ISO and JIS for Vickers hardness tests on metals, be it sheet, blocks or complex profile components. There are multiple options for a user to interact with the system to set up and control tests in accordance with ASTM, ISO and JIS (Nadcap) materials testing standard; The innovative Horizon Software allows file storing, image zoom, auto focus, limit setting conversion to other hardness scale, system setup and remote control, patter testing to ensure high reproducibility of test result and limits operator error and interpretation.
