1.4 This test method covers Vickers hardness tests made utilizing test forces ranging from 9.807 × 10-3 N to 1176.80 N (1 gf to 120 kgf), and Knoop hardness tests made utilizing test forces from 9.807 × 10-3 N to 19.613 N (1 gf to 2 kgf). The theory and practice of the method are presented in the most complete way in the current Standard: ASTM E 10, Standard Test Method for Brinell Hardness of Metallic Materials. Why so valuable? Thus the case depth can be easily determined by measuring 1.4 This test method covers Vickers hardness tests made utilizing test forces ranging from 9.807 × 10-3 N to 1176.80 N (1 gf to 120 kgf), and Knoop hardness tests made utilizing test forces from 9.807 × 10-3 N to 19.613 N (1 gf to 2 kgf). The hardness difference between the core and the outer surface of a material gives the case depth. Vickers Hardness 4. Table 1 — Ranges of test force Ranges of test force, F N Hardness symbol Designation F W 49,03 W HV 5 Vickers hardness test 1,961 u F < 49,03 HV 0,2 to < HV 5 Low-force Vickers hardness test Simple as it looks, it is a precise testing method giving repeatable and meaningful results but only when applied correctly. With Vickers hardness and Knoop hardness testing capabilities. Principally, the importance of hardness testing has to do with the relationship between hardness and other properties of material. 7. This Standard is prepared and maintained by the following are the most common hardness test methods used in today`s technology: 1. The ease with which the hardness test can be made has made it the most common method of inspection for metals and al-loys. By measuring the indentation diagonal length, the hardness will show on the screen directly, no need to check hardness table. 1.5 Additional information on the procedures and guidance Knoop Hardness 3.1: Rockwell Hardness Test The Rockwell Hardness test is a hardness measurement based on the net increase in depth of impression as a load is applied. Rockwell Hardness test 2. This part of ISO 6507 specifies the Vickers hardness test method, for the three different ranges of test force for metallic materials (see Table 1). Industrial digital screen can directly display hardness value, conversion hardness, testing method, testing force, 6. Brinell Hardness 3. The laboratory hardness tester supported by relative software equipped with a microscope giving magnification between 10 to 40x, applied the Vickers Test method on ferrous materials.
