UCI hardness tester NOVOTEST T-U3 - A vibrating rod (mechanical resonator) with a diamond tip acts as the connector in these devices, as it indents the material, the fundamental frequency of the resonator changes change, on the basis of hardness calculations.

I. Specification of UCI hardness tester NOVOTEST T-U3

Excellent hard measuring device:

  • The UCI hardness tester NOVOTEST T-U3 allows users to measure products up to 1 mm in thickness without the need for additional tools, and even less when using the UCI NOVOTEST Probe Test Stand for plates thin, making it unique among similar devices.

Measure small products:

  • Using this UCI durometer, users can avoid repairs and use additional accessories to quickly perform hardness tests of products weighing as little as 100g or even less. and easy.

Measurement of complex products:

  • Unlike the standard Leeb probe, the ultrasonic hardness test probe (UCI) of the T-U3 durometer requires an area of only a few square millimeters to measure hardness. This allows users to measure hardness in hard-to-reach places, products with complex shapes, welds and heat affected zones (HAZ), gear teeth, and more.


Precise method without trace:

  • The imprint after hardness measurement with the UCI method is a few microns and is practically invisible to the naked eye, compared with the Leeb method the imprint is about 500 microns in diameter, depending on the hardness. It also makes it possible to measure the hardness of layers of hard materials (nitriding, cementing, etc.).

Various types of probes:

  • As standard, the professional durometer comes with a probe with an internal penetration force of 50N (5 kgf), this probe is the most common and solves 90% of the tasks that can be solved by this method. However, in special cases where it is necessary to use probes with increased or decreased load on the resonator, the main features and applications are shown in the table below:

Advanced probe construction:

  • The probe of the UCI Hardness Tester T-U3 has a special nozzle, which ensures the perpendicularity of penetration into the surface of the object under test and minimizes the possibility of operating errors.
  • In addition, a special nozzle can be installed on the reverse side to work with surfaces of different diameters. In the same way that it can be removed from the transducer, in this case the thin tip of the probe can be installed in grooves or in narrow points of the product where hardness measurement is required.

Image structure measurement results combined with wireless printer operation:

  • The world's only portable hardness tester with a built-in camera, allowing the user to save an image of the tested object with fixed points of hardness value on its surface.
  • Alternatively, the instrument can be supplied with a wireless printer, allowing the user to quickly print a protocol of test results without leaving the test object.

Reliability and Warranty:

  • The NOVOTEST handheld hardness tester is highly reliable. The ultrasonic hardness transducer allows the user to make more than 200 thousand measurements without repair or replacement, and the design of the electronics allows it to be used under rather difficult operating conditions.
  • According to the operating rules, the service life of the durometer is more than 10 years.

Special software:

  • The UCI NOVOTEST T-U3 handheld hardness tester also comes with special software for working with the device storage and subsequent data transmission for processing in convenient formats.

II. Advantages

  • Measure the hardness of any bulk product more than 1 mm thick - inaccessible to a dynamic durometer (Leeb) (small parts, thin-walled structures, pipes, tanks, steel plates, objects) products with complex shapes, controlling the hardness of metal coatings, etc.)
  • Measure the hardness of the surface hard layer
  • Small mark after measurement (mirror surface of shaft neck, blade, gear teeth, etc.)
  • Wide hardness test range
  • Various measurement modes
  • Calibration of any scale in any range
  • Convenient and easy to measure
  • Optimized the number of buttons
  • Large full-color graphic display with bright backlight
  • Calibrations are stored in the probe's memory
  • Extended temperature range (frost, down to - 40°C)
  • Internal memory and PC communication
  • New, intuitive menu with tips on buttons
  • Optional wireless mini printer
  • Waterproof case
  • Rubber bumper protection
  • There are different operating modes:
    • Graph - method to build graph
    • Chart - chart builder mode
    • Statistics - statistical methods
    • Smart - filter mode for inaccurate measurements.
