70 years of Foundrax innovation and refinement led to the launch of the ROBUS Brinell Hardness test machine in 2018. The Robus is a closed-loop bench-top Brinell hardness tester capable of operating in all scales from HBW 2.5/62.5 to HBW 10/3000 but is supplied calibrated and UKAS certified in any two scales as standard (all scales available if required), The load cells are custom made for Brinell hardness testing and are not simple “off-the-shelf” units run over capacity. The body is designed using finite element analysis is able to easily resist the forces generated during the full 3000 kg test.
The control system is simple, intuitive and icon-based and able to operate in any language the user requires. The interface is based on the BRINtronic system, taking full advantage of many years of Foundrax expertise in making systems that are simple and reliable for the operator.
The Robus offers all the benefits of 70 years of foundry, forge and steel works experience in a robust bench-top machine that is equally reliable in the laboratory or on the shop floor.
