Proceq's Equotip enables portable hardness inspection of almost any object, polished parts and heat-treated surfaces. The hardness measurements are made by using the dynamic rebound testing method according to Leeb, the static Portable Rockwell hardness test and the Ultrasonic Contact Impedance (UCI) method. The rugged Swiss-made metal NDT hardness testers are designed for portable hardness testing in the lab, in the workshop, at production facilities or on site. Equotip Live is the latest innovation featuring a wireless impact device, mobile app, real-time data sharing and cloud backup.

 


 

Inventors of the Leeb Hardness Testing Principle in 1975

Since Proceq invented the Leeb hardness test principle in 1975, Equotip has become established as a globally recognized brand for portable hardness testing and a de facto industry standard. A wide range of different impact devices, as well as a comprehensive selection of test blocks and accessories cover most applications.
