The Leeb hardness tester is an instrument for testing the hardness of materials, mainly used for hardness metal materials detection. According to the Leeb principle, the hardness value is the ratio of the rebound speed and the impact speed of the punch at a distance of 1 mm from the surface of the sample after a specified mass impact body which at a certain speed with an elastic force.

Linshang Leeb hardness tester can converts between Leeb (HL), Vickers (HV), Brinell (HB), Shore (HS), Rockwell (HRA), Rockwell (HRB), Rockwell (HRC). And it has simple operation and high precision. At present, Linshang has five products: LS251D, LS252D, LS252DC, LS252DL, and LS252C. The following will introduce the prices, parameters and characteristics of the above-mentioned Leeb hardness testers.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why is the test data inaccurate?

    1. The surface of the measured object is too rough or dirty

    2. The weight and thickness of the measured object is less than the specified value

    3. The ambient temperature exceeds the working temperature during the test

    4. There is magnetic field interference around the test

  2. What's the difference between LS251D and LS252D?

    1. LS251D is separation design, LS252D as integrate design, more compact portable;

    2. LS251D can measure tensile strength (σb);

    3. LS251D has QC inspection;

    4. LS251D is equipped with standard hardness blocks, which can be used for calibration; other integrated models are not equipped and need to be purchased separately;

    5. LS251D is packed in engineering plastic box, and other integrated products are packed in color gift box

  3. What's the difference between LS252D and LS252DC?

    The probe devices are different. LS252D is a D-type impact device and LS252DC is a DC type impact device.

    The loading modes are different. LS252D is press loading and LS252DC is push loading.

  4. What is the difference between a type D impact device and a type DC impact device?

    There are D /C /DC /D+15 /G type impact devices, according to the actual situation of the workpiece to meet different needs. D is a standard probe suitable for most scenes, DC type is suitable for very cramped places (inside the hole, cylinder) measurement.

  5. Is there any difference between leeb hardness tester and other hardness tester (Rockwell, Vickers, etc.)?

    Different hardness tester have different testing principles and different measurement methods. The application scenarios are also different. Most of the Rockwell and Vickers hardness testers are desktop, while the Leeb hardness tester is handheld and easy to carry. According to the national standard GBT 17394.4, hardness values can be converted between. Linshang leeb hardness tester can be a variety of hardness standard automatic switching, eliminating manual table lookup cumbersome.

  6. What if the test value of the Leeb hardness tester is out of tolerance?

    First determine whether the measured object is qualified, and then calibrate the instrument with a standard block. If it is still not accurate, it is recommended to return to the factory for calibration.

  7. What is the minimum measurement weight and thickness of the Leeb hardness tester?

    If it is necessary to measure items less than the minimum thickness, it needs to be coupled to a strong support.
