LECO Corporation introduced the AMH55 hardness testing system. The AMH55 allows users to maximize their productivity and easily measure impressions on various surface conditions with accurate micro/macro-indentation hardness testing available in fully automatic, semi-automatic, and lite configurations. The AMH55 introduces LECO’s innovative Cornerstone® brand software to LECO’s hardness testing platforms, for increased usability, simplified reporting, and streamlined analysis times. With the AMH55 data and results can be tailored to each user’s specific needs, making it a valuable resource for any laboratory needing precise and productive hardness testing.
Highlights of the AMH55 include automated instrument operation, which combines the tasks of sample testing, measuring, converting, and documenting into one automated instrument. Advanced image recognition technology broadens the measuring capabilities on various types of sample surfaces. The Cornerstone brand software gives the user complete control over their analysis parameters, method settings, calibrations, reporting and more. A touch-screen interface with automatic software capabilities, such as simultaneous auto alignment and auto parfocal adjustment, delivers increased speed, ease-of-use, and repeatability to the analysis. An optional advanced analysis module further details the analysis with a color hardness and contour map feature, as well as auto indent placement.
The AMH55 is available in several model configurations, so users can choose the model that best fits their application. Models include the AMH55 automatic, semi-automatic, and lite configurations, each easily upgradeable to the fully automatic version when the time is right.
