UCI Hardness Tester PCE-5000 is a hardness tester that uses the ultrasonic contact impedance (UCI) method of ASTM A1038 to measure the hardness of metals and alloys with a minimum thickness of 2 mm / .08 in, in Non-destructive testing produces micro indentations.

  • Measured according to the method of ultrasonic contact impedance (UCI) of ASTM A1038
  • Measurement units: Rockwell A (HRA), Rockwell B (HRB), Rockwell C (HRC), Brinell (HB), Vickers (HV) and MPa (N/mm²) SI units
  • Measuring range: 61-85.6 HRA, 41-100 HRB, 20.3-68 HRC, 85-650 HB, 50-999 HV, 255-2180 MPa (N/mm²)
  • Accuracy: ±1.5 HR, ±3% HB, ±3% HV,
  • Repeatability: ± 0.3%
  • Memory size: 1,000 groups for measurement data and 20 groups for calibration data
  • Different types of probes (automatic motorized transducers) are available.


I. Specification of UCI hardness tester PCE-5000

Hardness Tester – Handheld Hardness Meter PCE-5000 UCI Uses ASTM A1038 Ultrasonic Contact Impedance (UCI) method to test the hardness of metals and alloys.

UCI hardness tester PCE-5000

  • The PCE-5000 Gauge is a handheld hardness tester that uses ASTM A1038’s ultrasonic contact impedance (UCI) method to measure the hardness of metals and alloys with a minimum thickness of 2 mm / .08 print.
  • The ultrasonic hardness test of PCE-5000 is considered non-destructive, as it creates a microscopic indentation that can only be seen when using a high-powered microscope.
  • With a fast measurement time of just 2 seconds, this UCI hardness tester is the ideal tool for testing welds, controlling the hardness of metal coatings and measuring the hardness of fine grained metals and small forgings. , casting materials, heat-affected zones, die ion stamping and dies, forms, presses, thin-walled structures and parts, bearings, tooth flanks, tubes, tanks, steel plates and products have a complex or complex shape.
  • The additional measuring sensors of this versatile durometer can be directly connected to the ultrasonic tester, they vary in test force and are applicable to durometer hardness testing requirements. difference.
  • Different sensors measure the hardness of objects depending on the roughness of their surface. For example, a standard sensor with 20 N measures surfaces with a roughness less than 5 µm. The 10 N sensor measures roughness less than 3.2 m and the 98 N sensor measures roughness less than 15 m.

II. Advantages
