Automatic Optical Brinell Hardness Testers (Model :OPFA-3000, OPFA-3000-PC)
Automatic Optical Brinell Hardness Testing Machines

Automatic Optical Brinell Hardness Testing Machine has a robust, C-type load frame & has been designed for production testing of cast or forged components like leaf springs, cam shafts, etc. for Brinell hardness value. This machine is suitable for foundries, engineering industry on production line.
Since most of the operations are fast and automatic, the test speed is high with less operator fatigue.
The cycle time (except loading / unloading) is about 12 seconds per test.
Load stages – 750 kgf and 3000 kgf.
Optical measuring equipment with 14 X magnification.
Job loading / unloading, push button operation, pushing cycle start, de-clamp buttons are only manual operations & rest all is automatic.
A push button is pressed for cycle start & hydraulic operations. After cycle time, impression is visible on screen, which (Diameter) is to be measured with the help of microscope of least count 0.01mm.
Computerized model is available .Computerized model has built in CCD and suitable advanced software. Hardness will be displayed on computer monitor automatically. Results printout can be taken.
Accuracy conforming to IS:2281.

Operation of the Machine -
1. Initial Settings -
Depending  on height of job, select a suitable screw extension piece and fix it to the main screw.
Depending on shape of job select a suitable support flat i.e. Vee table for round jobs and flat table for jobs with flat bottom.  Fix this at the screw / extension top.
Position the load selector lever to the required test load i.e. 750 kg or 3000 kg.
Confirm that required ball indentor dia 5mm or 10 mm is fixed.
Position the job on the table and adjust the screw height such that the test face of job is about 5 mm below the clamping cone bottom face. Now the machine is ready for production testing.
2. Test Cycle -
Start machine by ON push button. The clamping piston goes to bottom position and loading piston with indentor goes to the top position and the indentor shifts to indexed  (fitted) position.
Push the cycle start button. The bottom  piston moves up and the job is clamped against the clamping cone with a force of 500 kg. Then the loading piston moves down. The indentor shifts to its vertical position and  the set load is applied  on the test piece a light signal is provided which glows when the load is applied. The applied load is kept constant for a pre set time. Then the loading piston moves up and the indentor is indexed so that the impression is visible on the screen.  Measure the impression  by the micrometer.
Push the de-clamp button.
Unload the job and machine is ready for next test.
3. Thus -
Job loading / unloading
Impression / measurement
Pushing cycle start
De-clamp buttons
Are only manual operations and rest all is automatic.
The machine is designed for continuous operation in the environments of foundry / forge shop, etc.
