Axiotek, measuring instruments for hardness tests

Thanks to our considerable experience gained from more than 60 years of activity, we work in the whole field of measuring instruments that calculate the properties of materials, with a strong specialization on hardness testers manufacturing.
We design and produce groundbreaking machines to measure the hardness of materials (Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers, Micro Vickers, Knoop, Shore, IRHD, EHT, HU, etc.) and even to calculate Case Hardness Depths. Our strength is being able to create customized solutions for any types of need: from bench to portable hardness testers up to special instruments – developed purposely following customers’ requests.
We also offer consultancy, technical assistance, maintenance, measuring instruments repair and calibration according to international ASTM and ISO standards.
Our products – including their mechanical, electronic and software components – are completely invented, designed and manufactured in Italy using latest technological systems available. In our plant, highly-skilled workers employ cutting-edge machinery and successfully cooperate to reach a continuous improvement.

Portable and magnetic hardness testers
Our wide range of instruments includes the first portable magnetic and automatic hardness tester for Rockwell, Superficial Rockwell, Brinell and Vickers tests according to ISO 6508, ASTM E-18, ISO 6506, ASTM E-10, ISO 6507, ASTM E-384 standards. Thanks to its magnetic clamping base, it is possible to perform on-site tests directly on pipes, valves, etc., in any direction – even with the device turned upside down.

Universal and fully automatic hardness testers – for Rockwell, Brinell and Vickers tests
To reduce skilled labor costs and to minimize test times, we offer machines with fully automatic test cycle and direct reading of indentations, which have a large and robust base to support heavy or irregular-shaped samples.

L.I.S.A. patent: Laser Indicator System Axiotek
We recently developed an innovative laser pointing system to help the operator identifying the precise point where the instrument will perform the indentation (AFFRI patent No 1428177).
