The AutoVicky ZHV series is equipped with a high definition USB camera, motorised X-Y table, auto indentation measurement and case depth measurement, maximally eliminate human errors and improve work efficiency, makes hardness measurement more accurate and uncomplicated. Conforms to ASTM-E-92/E384 and ISO 6507.

Features:  ZHV-1000A / ZHV-1000F

  • Motorised platform : Precision X-Y movement to realize specific position hardness measurement.
  • Auto Measurement Software :iVicky 5.0 (1000A) / iVicky 6.0 (1000F) can control hardness tester and data communication, includes objectives and indenter switch, auto loading, dwell and unloading, single or multiple indentation, set step distance, movement mode, auto record indentation dialog line and hardness value, auto generate depth and hardness curve, error statistics, test times group statistics, general excel and word format support.
  • Automatic stage( 100 x 100 mm; Travel 50 x 50 mm; 1um resolution).
  • Indenter set up - vickers (HV), Indentation measurement via a digital sensor.
  • Auto focus (ZHV-1000F only) : Apply high resolution optic system and auto focus technology to evaluate hardness of specimen with Ra less than or equal to 0.8 um.
