Foundrax has more expertise with both manual and automatic Brinell microscopes than any other manufacturer (we pioneered automated Brinell measurement in the early 1980s, transforming the Brinell test from a somewhat ‘rough-and-ready’ measurement system into something now regarded as highly reliable – you can read more about this here). As with everything we supply, our microscopes are designed to give accurate results, year after year, in workshop conditions. Foundrax has been at the forefront of Brinell testing for over 60 years and a knowledge of industrial conditions informs everything we make.
Brinell Microscopes are used to measure the diameter of the indentation left by the hardness test machine. The diameter figure is then fed into a standard calculation that gives the hardness of the metal.
Our hand microscopes are robust and reliable, specifically designed for the rigours of a steelworks environment.
Both online and face-to-face demonstrations are available, please contact us on +44 (0) 1458 274 888 to arrange a convenient time.
Our microscopes are specifically engineered to provide you with great reliability. Choosing a manual or automatic microscope from Foundrax will enable you to calculate Brinell hardness figures with ease.
Our automated Brinell measurement system
Here at Foundrax, we aim to provide all of our customers with a suitable solution, one that not only enables you to test hardness effectively but suits your budget requirements perfectly.
Our automatic Brinell measurement system uses proprietary technology to recognise and measure the diameter of indentations more reliably than other automatic equipment (in fact, we were the first company to supply an automatic Brinell measurement system in the 1980s (you can read more about this here)). This system can be used in conjunction with either our own range of hardness testers or with other Brinell test equipment to improve the accuracy of your results.
When it comes to Brinell hardness testing, Foundrax can help to make the process efficient, simple and reliable by providing field-proven technology.
Benefits of the BRINtronic Brinell automated microscope
If you’re looking to maximise efficiency and accuracy when it comes to hardness testing, the automated BRINtronic microscope offers a fast, accurate and portable solution.
It comes in several formats including a simple modular system for use with your own PC or laptop, a PC-based system for use next to a static Brinell hardness tester and a fully ruggedised laptop system in its own bespoke carry case for use in the yard or in the field as required. All are designed to increase reliability and productivity. The automated system makes accurate hardness testing faster and easier, saving you time and effort.
Like many of the products that we supply at Foundrax, we can tailor the Brinell automatic microscope to match a variety of budget requirements, so as many customers as possible can benefit from this technology. If need be, we can spread out the cost of a BRINscope or BRINtronic by offering monthly payments.
