A rockwell hardness tester for sale is a tool used to measure the strength and stiffness of materials such as metals. This instrument uses a hard metal indenter, usually a diamond cone or steel ball, to penetrate the surface of the material being tested. A hardness tester can measure both the penetration depth and the resulting impression left by the indenter. Different testing methods are used for different applications.
