NDT-Hardness Testing Products


NDT-Hardness Testing Overview

GE's Inspection Technologies business offers a complete range of portable  hardness testers for quick and convenient on-site hardness testing. Our non-destructive hardness testing (NDT) equipment range is comprised of portable instruments and  a large number of probes and impact devices – opening up extensive  application ranges – for every testing situation. In addition, our NDT hardness equipment offers a quick and economical supplement to  stationary hardness testing in the modern production process.

There  are three physical methods of NDT hardness testing recognized in the field:  the static UCI (Ultrasonic Contact Impedance) method, the dynamic  rebound hardness testing method, and the optical TIV  (Through-Indenter-Viewing) method. The decision to utilize a specific  method depends on the test problem.
