Hardness Testing (Micro/Macro)
Micro and macro hardness testing determines the resistance of a material to penetration by a loaded indenter. Macro methods can be used to test the outer surface of a product. Micro methods can test a section within the product's interior.
Hardness values obtained from this test method can be used to determine the strength of products that have geometries or sizes too small for tensile testing. Accellent has strong materials testing capabilities and expertise to accurately determine hardness.
