3 Models available
TIME5100 - Standard model with integrated impact device D
TIME5102 - Special model for Hardness Measurement on surface hardened components, coatings, thin walled components. It has app. 1/4 impact energy of TIME5100/TIME5104. Integrated impact device C.
TIME5104 - Special model for Hardness Measurement in extremely confined spaces. Integrated impact device DL.

The small portable TIME5100 hardness testers with integrated impact device are designed for an extremely wide range of applications. They are especially recommended for Hardness Measurement on the shop floor. The automatic identification of the impact test direction makes them easy to use. Hardness tests are possible at any angle, even upside down. The data memory stores up to 270 values. Data can be transferred via USB interface to a computer or printer.

The outstanding features of the TIME5100 includes speedy and exceptionally user-friendly operation and high measuring accuracy, with an extremely low tolerance of ± 1.5%.

The hardness tester functions by releasing a small impact device on to the metal testing surface by means of a spring mechanism. The gauge's dynamic measuring procedure works by calculating the difference between the impact velocity and the rebound velocity of impact device.

The TH-170 can be used on a whole variety of metals. A statistics program calculates the mean hardness value from a number of single readings. Readings can be printed out immediately on a mini-printer or stored for later processing.

Hardness Measurement on metal substances such as:

Steel, cast steel, cold work tool steel, stainless steel, grey/nodular cast iron, aluminium, cast aluminium alloys, brass, bronze and wrought copper alloys
