Leeb Rebound Hardness Testers

Leeb hardness tester has a small size, light weight, easy to carry, very suitable for large specimens measuring, outdoor measurement applications.  The use of those portable hardness testers was initially limited to field tests where the test piece couldn’t be brought to the testing instrument.

However, meanwhile many different portable hardness testers proved their excellence even for laboratory use.

Hardness testers using Leeb's method operate in a slightly different manner as compared to standard testing methods like Vickers, Rockwell or Brinell. The hardness is indirectly measured via the loss of energy of a so-called impact body.

 

A LEEB hardness tester is produced according stringent construction criteria and all parameters influencing the L-value are 100% controlled. At the end of the production chain, all instrument components (impact device, impact body, indicating device) are cross-checked (calibrated) against referenced components of the reference instrument. New and modern Leeb Hardness testers have stored such conversion tables allowing for automatic display of the measured hardness in the selected scale.
