Force Testers >> Brinell Hardness

Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers, Knoop

There are many types of hardness testers available that can rapidly and accurately determine the hardness value of a wide variety of materials including metals, plastics, large parts, small precision parts. Whether you need bench mounted testers, large scale floor mounted testers or dedicated testers that are integrated into your production lines, Minerva can help you with your application.

All hardness testers feature the latest designs, hardware and firmware that mean all testers are fast, accurate and demonstrate some the best gauge repeatability and reproducibility data in the industry along with excellent accuracies and resolutions.


The Rockwell scale is a hardness scale based on indentation hardness of a material. The Rockwell test determines the hardness by measuring the depth of penetration of an indenter under a large load compared to the penetration made by a preload.


The Brinell scale characterizes teh indentation hardness of materials through the scale penetration of an indenter, loaded on a material test-piece.
