Application Note

Assessing the Hardness of Thin Medical Wires

Accurately assessing the hardness of small components such as very thin medical wires can be a challenging task. See how to achieve quick and reliable hardness measurements for thin wires using the direct-indentation method....

Application Note

Effortless hardness testing of heavy and bulky forging dies

Testing and verifying the hardness of forging dies weighing 400lbs or more is a heavy task! With traditional methods, each die requires lifting, transportation and extensive manual labor. See how to achieve accurate hardness testing with portable methods, saving time and costs in the process....

Application Note

Ultrasonic Examination of Heavy Steel Forgings

Inspecting forged and cast components can be more difficult than inspecting other components due to the attenuation factor. See which is the most efficient inspection method used to identify and characterize the defects in heavy steel forgings....

Case Study

Measuring Rock Hardness in Microgravity and Lunar Gravity

Ana Pires, Scientist-Astronaut undertakes the first-of-its-kind even, an all-women Microgravity experiment to test the hardness of rocks in low or zero gravity. See how she measured the hardness of rocks in these types of conditions and the results of her experiment....

Application Note

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauging and Lamination Assessments 

Being able to critically assess the thickness of materials with only partial accessibility is important, especially when measuring metal loss in pipework and pressure vessles. See which probes are used for thickness gauging and lamination assessments in areas with difficult access....

Application Note

Non-Destructive Inspection of Welds and Joints with Ultrasonics

Whether you need to assess the integrity of welds and joints at manufacturing stage, or in-service stage, one of the most reliable non-destructive techniques is inspection with the use of ultrasound. See which probes work best for inspections of welds, even with rough surfaces....
