High temperature indenter from Rtec Instruments is a cutting edge instrument of advanced controllers and electronics, capable of calculating hardness at various temperatures under vacuum or inert environment.
Online PR News – 23-October-2012 – San Jose, CA – San Jose, California, 23 October 2012: San Jose based Rtec Instruments offers unique high temperature indenter that can measure hardness of metal, alloys, powder metallurgy, ceramics, glass, thin films etc. in vacuum or inert environment such as argon helium or nitrogen from ambient to 1600C. It can be used in industries like cutting tools, ceramic, space, automotive, semiconductor, coatings, etc.
Talking about the equipment, a top executive with the company commented, “Fully automated stages, low noise pumps, low power consumption, fine finish on parts and components, active lighting, small foot print, built in camera, etc. makes the indenter suitable for both for manufacturing as well as research purpose.”
Water cooled specimen stage in the indenter is manipulated through a dynamic vacuum seal capable of xy and angular movement ensuring effective heat isolation system. Low power heaters heat indenter as well as specimen to prevent thermal gradient at the point of testing. For effectively monitoring insitu temperature, chamber temperature is measured at multiple points in the chamber.
Inline imaging is another feature, enabling users to calculate and take images of indents without taking the sample out. Discussing the specs, the executive commented, “Load 25 to 2000g, temperature 600/1200/1600C, vacuum 10-5/10-7 bar, operating system Windows 7 and voltage 110/220V. Environmental chambers are humidity, inert gas, etc.”
Rtec Instruments has developed an array of instruments for testing and measurements. Whether the clients require a fully automated or manual system, they are capable of delivering it.
