Simple Operation
Designed with simplicity in mind, the user menu now reduces the time spent to setup the hardness tester. Max 400 items of test results stored automatically.

Easy to measure difficult locations
Shimana SHBLHT238 is ideal Automatic Bench-top Hardness Tester for testing inside diameters or hard to reach areas. Using one of the standard or optional indenter, carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron, non ferrous metal, and engineering plastic can be tested.

Very Low Friction Operation
Thanks to the Dolphin-nose indenter arm the effects of frictional inconsistencies is reduced, The Shimana SHBLHT238 provides exceptional accuracy and repeatability for hardness tests. The load cycle is fully automatic.



  • Dolphin-nose indenter arm for easy reach of interior and exterior surfaces
  • Multiple test force generation for Rockwell (SHBLHT238-R model), Rockwell and Rockwell Superficial (SHBLHT238-RS and SHBLHT238-RSH models)
  • Suitable for testing of carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron and non ferrous metals
  • Testing internal surface of rings and tubes with diameters over 23mm
  • Testing force is set automatically according to the testing scale
  • Automatic load cycle: the loading, dwell, unloading process of the main test force controlled exactly to meet the standards
  • Curved surface correcting is done automatically
  • High measuring precision
  • Measuring results are digitally displayed
  • Data output: RS232 and USB. PC software application and cables are sold separately
  • Test value can be transformed to the value of HB, HV, HK and σb value
  • Meets the ISO 6508-2 and ASTM E18 standards
