Most of the instructure is the same with Austrian instrument, and is also made of hardness test head, magnetic crane and fixing frame concurrently the handle. The difference however,is that the Italian products are more exquisite, and achieve digital display. In the digital display instruments, the force transducer is also applied. The value of test force can be read on the displayer. The test operation is very simple, as long as pull the measuring rod downward, and keep 4 seconds can finish the test. The test hardness value can be read on dial head or digital player. The instrument applies power with a 6V rechargeable battery. The net weight is 25kg.
This instrument appeared earlier than the Italian one. Two magnetic chucks are applied in a creative way, which achieves the fixation of the test head on specimen. This structure reduces weight of the instrument greatly. The instrument is mainly made of two magnetic chucks and one hardness test head. There is a hand wheel force pressure structure. One dial head points at the test force value, one dial head applied on screw micrometer of the force pressure principle axis is used for precising indentation depth, and one applied on the reading hub wheel is used for reading Rockwell hardness value.
