Wilson Rockwell 574 Hardness Tester
The Wilson VH1150 is the ultimate evolution of the deadweight Vickers hardness tester with a unique load range, 300gf – 50kgf, combined in one machine. The automatic load selection eliminates the need for a hard to operate manual selector knob, and opens new possibilities in (semi-) automation applications. The Vickers hardness testing machine’s functions like multi-scale conversion, shape correction and USB data export, make hardness testing easier and help you focus on your actual process control.

Experience the comfort and accuracy of a higher segment

  • The manual load selector knob is replaced with a durable motor to change the loads automatically.
  • The fast & quiet motorized turret is integrated as part of completely automatic test cycle. One push off the start button is all it takes.


  • Designed for Vickers hardness testing conform international standards ISO 6507 and ASTM E384
  • Segment leading load range - 0.3 - 50 kgf load range over ten (10) individual load steps

Increased ease of use with Automation

  • Basic – fully control the Vickers hardness tester and measure the indents on your PC screen with a built-in camera and the DiaMet software. A powerful data management tool allows you to evaluate and store your data.  
  • Semi-Automatic - Helps you setting up easy traverses for a CHD or NHT measurement with it´s motorized XY-stage and eliminates the user influence by measuring the indent diagonals automatically.  
  • Full-Automatic - Using a camera, motorized XY-stage and auto-focus, the full automatic DiaMet systems can take and measure hundreds of indents without operator interference.
