Computerised Brinell Hardness Testing Machines
( Model : OPAB-3000-IPC )

Computerized Brinell Hardness Tester, Model : OPAB-3000-IPC is designed for Brinell hardness measurement on steels and other ferrous materials and also on non-ferrous materials like Brass, Bronze, Aluminium, etc. The material can be cast, forged or rolled and the shape can be flat, round or irregular shapes.

• The actual load application system is of dead weight type combined with mechanical lever system. The supporting   hydraulic system is for initial lifting of load before each test and dampening the load application system for smooth   application of load.
• A separate hydraulic power pack, positioned in the bottom part of the machine adds to the machine stability.
• Our unique design of a floating fulcrum lever system ensures high accuracy and dependability.
• An automatic indenter index system is provided which tilts the indenter after the impression and the magnified   image is visible on the IPC for area measurement & display of hardness value.
• Thus this machine saves a lot of cycle time, improves accuracy of measurement and gives fast and accurate results   with less operator fatigue.
• This model is mainly useful for production testing in Auto shops, Foundries, Forging Shops and Heat treatment   units, etc.
• The machine accuracies confirm to IS: 2281-2005 & BS: 240.

Software Features (BrinSoft):
This is precise Brinell Impression Measurement Software. High technology image management system is built to get desired accuracy with IS compliance to be measured within given time. The detailed features are as listed below:

Precise Brinell Impression Measurement:
Based on Image Processing techniques, BrinSoft achieves high precision image measurement and also the repeatability in the readings. It is easily configurable for environment. Working with USB camera enables BrinSoft to be deployable at difficult measuring conditions along with standard BIMS applications.

Measurement Modes:
There is a fast and accurate Auto mode for standard components with good surface finish. Additionally, a Semi-Auto mode is provided for measuring blured images due to poor surface finish. In case of very fast measurement requirements where the actual hardness value is not required. A confirmation that it is within specified limits is enough, compare mode is also provided. With such variety of modes, most of the test conditions are covered enabling the user to obtain results in required methodology and in required formats.

Calibration facility:
Calibration is the heart of every measurement. So, BrinSoft provides multiple calibration levels to achieve high accuracy in results. There is Pixel calibration accompanied with multi-point calibration and ERMA calibration. With these calibration techniques, BrinSoft provides precise measurement results.

Analysis and Reporting:
If one cannot find the historical data, it is as good as unavailable. So, Search is key feature of BrinSoft. Test Certificate and Customer are key search criteria along with other details. Uniqueness of the Test Certificates being generated is maintained and the same is available for searching and printing. Additionally, there is statistical analysis available in tabular and graphical formats to assist the user.

Hardware Interface :
The key input to BrinSoft is the image captured by the CCD camera. So, presently it is configured to work with special purpose USB camera for this application. However, it can be easily configured to work with any other camera considering the image quality.
