LAKE BLUFF, Ill., May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Buehler, an ITW Company, is introducing the Wilson® VH1102 and VH1202 micro hardness testers. These Wilson hardness testers meet the highest accuracy standards and can be used both in quality control and research and development. The instruments feature deadweight loads from 10 g up to 2 kg and nine different, automatically selectable loading stages. The new Wilson VH1102 and VH1202 universal hardness testers offer a flexible, cost-efficient and reliable solution for Knoop and Vickers micro-hardness testing in accordance with ISO 6507, 9385 and 4546 or ASTM E384 and E92.

The system is highly intuitive to use and can be operated by less extensively trained staff after a brief period of training. The wide load range with test scales from HV/HK0.01 to HV/HK2 is the same for both models. The usual knob for manual selection of test weights has been replaced by a durable, software-controlled electric motor to automatically change test weights, thereby providing a level of operator convenience on the new Wilson micro hardness testers which is normally found only on higher-end instruments. Provide High Ease of Operation with Choice of 4 or 6 Position Turret The two testers differ with regard to the electrically driven, high-speed, low-noise turret. The VH1102 model is equipped with a turret providing four positions, including an indenter for Knoop or Vickers and two standard objectives for 10x and 50x magnification at normal working distance. The VH1202 model is equipped with a six-position turret, including two indenters for both Knoop and Vickers, and an additional objective with 5x magnification at long working distance. For both models, all you need to do in order to set the turret to the magnification selected on the touch screen is push the Start button.
