The FH 12 Series represents one of Tinius Olsen’s most advanced system for universal hardness testing. This multi purpose hardness testing instrument uses a modern design and innovative technology, based on the application of mechatronic components and high-resolution video machine vision systems.
The high level of precision combined with high definition imaging means that the scope of applications for the FH 12 is almost unlimited; whether those applications cover aircraft engine parts, automobile parts, production lines, general quality assurance or general laboratory use.
The FH 12is available in three models with force ranges consisting of 1 to 250 kgf, 3 to 750 kgf, 10 to 3000 kgf. A special feature of the FH 12 is the six position motorized turret, which comes as a standard on each system. The turret can hold up to 3 different indentors and/or 3 (or 4 if only 2 indenters are selected) objectives. Combine the turret with an optional X-Y stage, a rotary table or inclination table and you have one of the most comprehensive testing instruments available.
