Since 1954 AFFRI® has been producing hardness testers where the force is generated by load cells instead of traditional dead-weight loads and elevating screws. Combine this technology with innovative components and the result is the unique AFFRI SYSTEM®.
The AFFRI SYSTEM® has consistently been protected by registered patents. An increase in the operative performances was obtained with the use of a controlled load cell in a closed-loop system (Patent AFFRI N. 1175158). However this improvement appears moderate if we compare it with the high qualitative and operative level reached by the AFFRI SYSTEM®. A further improvement in performance was achieved when AFFRI® automated the Rockwell and Brinell hardness tester. The automation process starts with only one control button and no break in positioning, approach and execution of the test. The fully automatic operation and the rapid speed obtained by the AFFRI SYSTEM® remains unchanged regardless of the load cell version. This is due to the use of unprecedented technologies (patent pending) used in the system.
