    Proceq's Equotip 550 flexible UCI HV1-HV5 and Portable Rockwell hardness tester tests combines the testing power of both UCI and Rockwell so you can test both scratch-sensitive, polished and thin parts and fine-grained materials with any shape including heat-treated surfaces. This model will also work with Leeb testing but you need to purchase the additional probe(s) for that application.

    Features on-screen feedback which reduces measurement inaccuracies which can be caused by human error. The Proceq Equoptip 550 includes ready-to-go reports through powerful built-in reporting. Extremely durable touchscreen with enhanced software features and analysis functions.


    Equotip 550 Portable UCI HV1-HV5 and Rockwell Hardness Tester takes advantage of a new generation full color, dual processor Touchscreen Unit with enhanced software capabilities. The instrument offers a unique range of functions which ultimately help speed up on-site and laboratory inspections and analysis.

    UCI Additional Features:

    Adjustable test load

    The required test load can be selected by the user in the settings menu. For each measurement series, the force can be chosen from five levels between HV1 and HV5 (~10 N and ~50 N), to fit a wide range of applications. The minimum required mass for reliable UCI measurements is 0.3 kg (0.66 lbs), and a thickness of at least 5 mm (0.2 inch).


    HV1 - Precision parts, thin coatings, hardened layers
    HV5 - Large components, HAZ, forging parts

    Optional Special Foot

    The optionally available special foot increases the measurement repeatability. It can be used for flat or curved surfaces. For curved surfaces there are two different apertures, one for diameters from 5 to 25 mm and one for larger diameters from 20 to 70 mm.


    Rockewell Additional Features:

    Specially For Thin Parts

    Particularly suited for scratchsensitive and polished parts or on thin parts, profiles and pipes. The required minimum thickness for a reliable hardness reading is ten times the indentation depth. For the mass there is no minimum requirement.

    Broad Hardness Scales Coverage

    Measurements in HRC and HV with automatic integrated conversions to HB, HRA, HRB and many more common scales in compliance to ASTM E140 and ISO 18265.

    Suits Various Sample Geometries

    Unique measuring clamp and support feet are available for the probe allowing tests to be carried out on various geometries.

    For Any Environment

    The Equotip 550 Portable Rockwell can be utilized for on-site, factory and lab environment with almost no limitation.
