The FH11 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 FH11 is almost unlimited; whether those applications cover aircraft engine parts, automobile parts, production lines, general quality assurance or general laboratory use.

The FH 11 is 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 11 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.
