The Avery 64/1416 Brinell hardness testing machine has been designed to meet the dual demands of modern process control and scientific investigation. Other tests requiring a high degree of precision or repetition tests for control purposes can be carried out on the same standard machine. It is claimed to be a great advance on the usual type of hardness testing machine. Consistent conditions can be maintained in any series of tests; as the machine is power operated, the load is applied at a controlled rate, and the rate of loading is adjustable.
