Materials testing, including hardness testing, is a fundamental but useful element in analyzing component properties, and can be accomplished by a multitude of methods and techniques. Determining the hardness value can provide valuable insight to the performance, durability, strength, flexibility, and capabilities of a variety of material types from raw materials to prepared specimens and finished goods. In today's extremely competitive global market, with high expectations on accuracy and productivity, there are heavy consequences for quality and/or productivity errors. Manufacturing, research, and quality control now more than ever must depend heavily on new and evolving techniques to revolutionize, streamline, and bolster their existing, more traditional processes if they want to maintain a competitive pace. Significant advances, developing at exponential rates, in hardware, electronics, algorithm's and software has led to much more sophisticated material and hardness testing equipment that can quickly, reliably, and with extreme precision, provide useful, material critical information.
