Wilson Rockwell Hardness Testers
Rockwell
The Rockwell 2000 Series Hardness Testers achieve the highest level of depth measurement accuracy and resolution available and as a result has the best GR&R performance in the industry. This instrument is offered in two sizes, 10 - 14 in vertical capacity, to accommodate varying sample sizes and is available in three different variations of Rockwell Regular, Superficial, or Twin hardness scales.
IsoMet High Speed Precision Cutter
Vickers & Knoop
The best pre-configured full automatic Vickers hardness tester on the market. The All-in-One Wilson VH3100 has all you need for your production control hardness testing requirements. This machine setup is configured to perform easiest operation but with advanced software solutions – DiaMet Enterprise.
Consumables for Metallographic testing
Brinell & Universal
The UH4000 series universal hardness tester is designed for high volume production labs and production floor. It is available in two different configurations, the UH4250 and UH4750. Universal hardness testers are designed to perform several hardness scales with one machine, in most cases for higher loads (>5kgf).

Test Blocks
Wilson Hardness test blocks set the standard for the industry and are made from the highest quality material to insure the most uniform and repeatable blocks available. A comprehensive variety of scales and blocks are available to meet the wide ranges and hardness scales associated with Rockwell®, Brinell, Knoop and Vickers testing. All Wilson test blocks are calibrated in the Wilson Hardness Calibration Laboratory in Binghamton, NY. The Wilson lab is accredited to ISO-IEC 17025 by A2LA and the testers used in the calibration process undergo a stringent monitoring process using NIST traceable devices. For the ultimate accuracy and performance in tester verification, calibration sets are available for most Rockwell scales.
