GE Inspection Technologies MIC 10 Hardness Testers (formerly Krautkramer MIC 10) operate according to the ultrasonic contact impedance method. The UCI method enables quick and easy measurement: position probe and read off the value. This operational ease is achieved because the Vickers diamond indent in the material's surface is electronically measured and instantly displayed as a hardness value without using the cumbersome optical evaluation of a microscope normally associated with Vickers hardness testing.
The small, handy MIC 10 makes life easy for you: a hardness tester that you can take anywhere - on scaffolds for testing large containers and pipes, or for testing components at any location. The small narrow probes even enable you to make measurements on positions difficult to access, such as tooth flanks or roots of gears.
You can measure in any direction, e.g. in the horizontal or overhead positions. The instrument carrier and prop-up stand permits two hand operation, for correct probe positioning and guidance.
By pressing a key, you can display your reading as a single value or as the active arithmetical average value of a hardness measurement set. Editing of erroneous single values, without having to interrupt the measurement set, is just as simple. Adjustable alarm thresholds show you critical measurement values both visually and with audible alarms. The calibration parameters for measurements on low and non-alloyed steel are pre-programmed into the MIC10; however, the instrument can be easily and quickly re-calibrated to other materials.
Instrument operation can be customized for specific testing requirements: unnecessary functions can be inhibited, e.g. various hardness scales or the recalibration capability. This reduces key presses and simplifies operation.
