ground to a elongated pyramidal form and produces an elongated indentation. ground to a squarebased pyramid with a 136° angle between faces and leaves a square indentation with an diagonal length that is about 7 times the depth of the indentation. brittle material like glass and coatings. Key board for alphanumeric input. The macro Vickers test force range (above 1 kgf) is generally used for larger specimens that could also be tested using Rockwell or Brinell testers. 5 .What is Microindentation Testing? Vickers Scale Microindentation is used on test specimens with a thickness or area that is insufficient to accommodate the larger indentations of other test scales and typically uses 10 gf to 30 kgf forces and small pointed diamond indenters. A table provides the Knoop hardness value once the length of the indentation has been measured. tester status. A Vickers indenter is a diamond. backlite display. with approximately a 7:1 ratio between the long and short diagonals. Test specimens must be well finished and free of imperfections to allow the hardness values to be determined by optical measurements with a high powered microscope.

A table allows calculation of the Vickers number once the diagonals of the indentation have been measured. Icon keys for printing and statistics. The 172° 30' longitudinal angle and 130° 0' transverse angle of the pyramid shaped Knoop indenter allows accurate measurement of small force indentations. and a 30:1 ratio between the length and depth of the indentation. Knoop Scale The Knoop hardness is calculated by dividing the applied force by the projected area of the indentation. The micro Vickers test force range (10 gf to 1 kgf) is used for applications similar to the Knoop method. A Knoop indenter is a diamond. The Vickers hardness is calculated by dividing the applied force by the surface area of the indentation. statistics. with memory for scale selection and access to all features. The Knoop indenter. T 2P sin la HV = 2_ formu By D² Soft keys. is extremely useful in testing hard. for test results. Knoop testing uses 10 gf to 1 kgf test forces.
