5000 is a portable hardness tester that uses the ASTM A1038 ultrasonic contact impedance (UCI) method to measure the hardness of metals and alloys with a minimum thickness of 2 mm.

This UCI hardness tester is the ideal tool for weld inspection, hardness control of metal coatings and hardness measurement of fine-grained metals, small forgings, cast materials, heat-affected zones, ion-nitrided stamping dies and molds, forms, presses, thin-walled structures and parts, bearings, tooth flanks, pipes, tanks, steel sheets and products with intricate or complex shapes.
