Rockwell hardness Testing Facility

Metallurgy and Materials Engineering

Incharge: Swarup Kumar Ghosh

The Rockwell Hardness test uses a conical diamond or a hard steel ball as an indenter. Initially, a minor load is applied on the metal to be tested. This force is to allow the indenter to penetrate the material surface, thus eliminating any errors causes by surface roughness.
