Clemex CMT macro/micro hardness testing solutions produce accurate and repeatable results. Choose either a single or dual indenter option depending on your testing requirements. These field proven systems offer unparalleled capabilities and are fully ASTM and ISO compliant.
Our automated hardness systems are designed to generate reports according to most recognized standards. Bundled with four metallography modules, the tester can act as an image analysis system.

IMAGE ANALYSIS MODULES
Turn your tester into a fine-tuned image analysis solution. Analyze grain size, phase area percentage, nodularity, and more!
Our built-in validation function uses invariant dimensional calibration for increased accuracy. Indent and measure a certified test block automatically at specified intervals.
Create hardness traverses automatically using a preview of the sample background, a T-bar tool for a perpendicular alignment of the test points with the sample surface, and options for spacing and staggering indents.
Stagger indents on thin samples or samples with a small heat affected zone.
SCAN OF FULL SAMPLE
Obtain a detailed map of the entire sample. Navigate around the whole sample and view microstructural changes, heat-affected and heat-treated zones.
Position indents at even distances from each other or at precise distances from the edge of the sample using the Reference Circle tool.
Find the center of the sample or draw parallel lines to position patterns precisely where they are required.
Use an auto-focus pattern to compensate for the unevenness of a sample.
AUTOMATIC SHADING CORRECTOR
Ensures even illumination for images captured using the system’s camera.
For multi-level samples requiring automatic z-repositioning during indentation.
Set three coordinates using the joystick and let the system define the region to analyze automatically.
Generate standard or customized reports with images, tables and graphs using an Excel template.
Position indents anywhere on the sample and click on Run to obtain graphs and statistics.
MULTIPLE CONVERSION TABLES
Conversion tables for HRA, HRB, and HRC scales are in compliance with ASTM E-140 (native hardness measurements are in HV or HK).
Results are updated dynamically in the results window during an analysis.
SAVE AND RELOAD PATTERNS
Once a pattern has been created, you can save it and reuse it later to execute another analysis.
3D HARDNESS MAP
Export your hardness values and plot the results as a 3D Excel graph.
Depending on your requirements, we will help you select the right hardness tester, objectives, indenters, a motorized stage, and a high-resolution camera. We ensure a seamless integration of all components.
