The Brinell test is of basic importance in many areas of quality control, but often inaccurate readings and long test cycles have a negative impact on productivity.
Ernst is pleased to introduce the new model e-brio², equipped with a new lighting system and a new algorithm of indentation’s edge detection, able to read reliably and accurately on every material and surface, even on rough ones. These features and its single probe suitable for all the indentation sizes make it a unique system in its category.
The new algorithm is extremely powerful, the result of twenty years of experience in the field, designed to allow to:
Remarkably improve the capabilities to detect the indentation edge
Remarkably improve the accuracy of the measure
Ensure accurate and reliable measurements on every material and test surface, without any change of parameters or lightning.
The new lighting system and the new algorithm of indentation’s edge detection is able to read reliably and accurately on every material and surface, even on rough ones.
The new illumination system with red light LED matrix and new optical path allows to:
Improve the lighting uniformity of the surface
Improve the contrast between internal and external indentation surface
Reduce distortions of the resulting image
With the first click the software will identify the circle that best fits on the indentation edge, draws it over the indentation image, records its diameter and calculates the Brinell number
With a second click, the value is confirmed
All measurements can be stored in files and charted; optionally the system can calculate statistics in a file
It is possible to enter up to five (5) tolerance ranges makes the evaluation of the results easy and immediate. On the main screen, the software shows a graph with the last tests made and calculates the average on a given number of consecutive readings
With e-brio² the indentation reading is made in a few seconds with a resolution of 0.001 mm, thus quickly measuring and recording the correct Brinell hardness
