In addition to the material loading capacity, the material-specific parameter provides important information about homogeneity and a possible failure probability. Apart from this, it allows conclusions to be drawn about the microstructure or potential material defects. Owing to the above, this measuring method is indispensable for HENZE BNP as a quality assurance tool, especially in the field of sintered boron nitride materials.
The new hardness tester provides HENZE BNP with additional meaningful measurement results. The precise Brinell hardness measurements provide important information on mechanical abrasion resistance and enable tailor-made evaluations of hardness, especially for soft materials such as boron nitride and boron nitride mixed ceramics.
The two new materials testing machines are literally predestined for research and development as well as for ongoing quality assurance work.
