  Rockwell Superficial Test is applied for thin strips, coatings, carburized surfaces. Reduced loads (15 kgf, 30 kgf, and 30 kgf) as a major load and deduced preload (3kgf) are used in the superficial test. Depending on the indenter, two scales of Rockwell Superficial method may be used: T (1/16” steel ball) or N (diamond cone).

  Variants on the Rockwell hardness test procedure are used depending on the material and strength of a part. The most common Rockwell variants include: HRC – Known as “Rockwell C,” a kgf load is applied via a diamond in this method. 1 ASTM D (Vol. ) Standard Test Method for Rockwell Hardness of Plastics and Electrical Insulating Materials Rockwell Superficial Scales ROCKWELL (S) SUPERFICIAL .

and verification of Rockwell hardness testing machines have been included. In the preparation of this standard, assistance has been drawn from ASTM E 18 a ‘Standard test methods for Rockwell hardness and Rockwell superficial hardness of metallic materials’ issued by American Society for Testing and Materials, USA. For scales that use a ball indenter, the Rockwell hardness number is calculatedfrom h (in mm) as: Regular Rockwell Hardness= 0 h/mmRockwell Superficial Hardness= 0 h/mm Test Method Standards The Rockwell hardness test method is specified by several national and international standards.

The indenter is forced into the test material under a preliminary minor load F0 (Fig. 1A) of 3 kgf. When equilibrium has been. The Rockwell scale is a hardness scale based on indentation hardness of a material.

The Rockwell test measuring the depth of penetration of an indenter under a large load (major load) compared to the penetration made by a preload (minor load).

There are different scales, denoted by a single letter, that use different loads or indenters. These test methods cover the determination of the Rockwell hardness and the Rockwell superficial hardness of Method for Rockwell superficial hardness test book materials by the Rockwell indentation hardness principle.

This standard provides the requirements for Rockwell hardness machines and the procedures for performing Rockwell hardness tests. The Rockwell Superficial hardness test method consists of indenting the test material with a diamond cone (N scale) or hardened steel ball indenter.

The indenter is forced into the test material under a preliminary minor load F0 (Fig. 1A) usually 3 kgf. When equilibrium has been reached, an indicating device that follows the movements of the. GENERAL DESCRIPTION AND TEST PROCEDURE FOR ROCKWELL HARDNESS AND ROCKWELL SUPERFICIAL HARDNESS TESTS 5.

Principles of Test and Apparatus General Principles—The general principles of the Rockwell hardness test are illustrated in Fig. 1 (diamond indenter) and Fig.

This standard provides the requirements for Rockwell hardness machines and the procedures for performing Rockwell hardness.

Hardness is a characteristic of a material, not a fundamental physical property. It is defined as the resistance to indentation, and it is determined by measuring the permanent depth of the indentation. mm for the Rockwell hardness test and Rockwell superficial 6 Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Vol 7 Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Vol FIG.

Scope. These test methods cover the determination of the Rockwell hardness and the Rockwell superficial hardness of metallic materials, including test methods for the verification of machines for Rockwell hardness testing (Part B) and the calibration of standardized hardness test blocks (Part C).

test force. Rockwell hardness machine—a machine capable of performing a Rockwell hardness test and/or a Rockwell super-ficial hardness test and displaying the resulting Rockwell hardness number.

Rockwell hardness testing machine—a Rockwell hardness machine used for general testing purposes. Which hardness testing method measures the hardness of the sample extremely close to the surface and employs either a ball or Diamond-point penetrator.

Superficial Rockwell 8. The method of Superficial Rockwell hardness test consists of indenting the material to be tested with a hardened steel ball indenter or a diamond cone.

Under a preliminary minor load that is usually of 3 kgf, the indenter is forced into the material to be tested. Over 30 different scales are employed between Superficial Rockwell and Rockwell testing, because of various combinations and choices of major loads, indenters and tests.

Knoop Hardness Test. This Micro hardness Test is employed on miniature material feature that cannot be put on test by other methods.

It uses a testing load of 1 Kg or less. A variation of Rockwell hardness testing is the Rockwell Superficial Hardness testing. This testing method is used to measure the hardness of thin materials that tend to bend or get crushed under regular testing conditions.

In this testing method, the indentation material is the same as in standard Rockwell testing but the applied load is reduced. As a result, there is NO direct analytic conversion between hardness measures.

Instead, one must correlate test results across the multiple hardness tests. This calculator is based on hardness data compiled from ASM Metals Reference Book 3rd ed, published by ASM International, and Machinery's Handbook 25th ed, published by Industrial Press.

The. For the superficial Rockwell scales, the preliminary force (load) level is 3 kgf and the standard total force (load) levels may be 15 kgf, 30 kgf or 45 kgf. The Rockwell hardness test method consists of indenting the test material with a diamond cone or hardened steel ball indenter.

procedures when performing Rockwell hardness measurements and calibrations is a beneficial step to reducing measurement errors.

The purpose of this Guide is to explain the causes of variability in Rockwell hardness test results and to supplement the information given in test method standards with good practice recommendations. And then the measurement is converted into a hardness number using the appropriate Rockwell scale.

This standard applies to both the "Superficial" Rockwell scale using a preliminary force of 3 Kg., and the "Regular" Rockwell scale with a 10 kg.

preliminary force. Total test forces for the "Superficial and "Regular" scales range from 15 to. High Rockwell hardness numbers represent hard materials and low numbers soft materials. d 2 Fundamentals of Rockwell Hardness Testing Like the Brinell, Vickers, Knoop, Scleroscope and Leeb tests - all of which fall in the general category of indentation hardness tests - the Rockwell test is a measure of the.this tester uses the standard test method for rockwell and Superficial rockwell hardness testing per AStM e Basic Operation 1.
