Product Information

The Rockwell Measuring Principle

The test principle of the Equotip Portable Rockwell follows the traditional Rockwell static test method. During measurements with the Equotip Portable Rockwell Probe, a diamond indenter is forced into the test piece using a precisely controlled force. The indentation depth of the diamond is continuously measured while a load is applied and released. From the indentation depths d1 and d2 recorded at two defined loads, the difference is calculated: Δ = d2 – d1 . This is traditionally referred to as plastic deformation.
