Customer Reviews
The touch screen micro vickers hardness tester has been installed a few weeks ago, everything is OK. Thanks for your advice and excellent service.

—— Mr. David Chambers

Thanks for the fast delivery and our customer is very satisfied for the rockwell hardness tester, and hope more orders soon.

—— Neil Renato

After we visited the customer, they finally decided to purchase Brinell hardness tester iBrin-413Z, now we have installed the unit at customer’s site,

—— Fermin Lee

Thank you for the indenters (diamond  cone 120 degrees). We recently got it and already tested it. Indenters  are good as we expected. 

—— Dalius Skinulis

The Measurements are good for Brinell Tester HBST-3000.

—— Sun Chull Kim

Hey, the hardness tester iVick-484ST was installed last week and works well, thanks for the professional support.

—— Sabinian Smith

I am glad to inform you that the installation of the SHB-3000C Brinell hardness tester has been finished successfully. I would like to thank you!

What is Eddy Current Technique?


The most common use of eddy current measurement is for non-conductive coatings over non-ferrous metals such as anodize or paint over aluminum.


This technique allows for an accurate reading with even very thin materials through elimination of the base effect.

How eddy current measurement works?


When a conductive material is subjected to an AC magnetic field from a probe, eddy currents occur in the material in proportion to frequency of the drive signal and conductivity of the material. The induced eddy currents generate an opposing magnetic field that alters the circuit reactance and the output voltage of the probe. The change in output voltage is used to calculate the coating thickness.


The iqualitrol gages use eddy current technology for measuring metallic coatings over ferrous substrates. Unlike the more common method, magnetic induction, eddy current technology is not limited by geometry, and it eliminates the need for calibration on the bare part.


The technology also comes with a scanning option that allows operators to continuously measure over large areas with one swift measurement. The feature calculates an average measurement, and it provides for an accurate reading for thickness over uneven or textured substrates, thus eliminating the need to take multiple readings.


Some gages include a detachable probe on a long, flexible cable, affording greater accessibility when measuring hard-to-reach surfaces. The adaptability of the instrument provides for maximum flexibility for measuring a variety of coating thicknesses.
