diamond pyramid hardnesstest


diamond pyramid hardnesstest
this test, more commonly known as the TestVickers test, finds greater use in the laboratory than the workshop. It employs a pyramid shaped diamond with an included angle of 136( which is impressed into the specimen using loads of 5 to 120 kg making a small square impression. This test is used for finished or polished components because the impression can be very small. The diamond pyramid hardness number is obtained from a calculation based on measuring the diagonals of the impressions in the steel.
