The sole UK representative for Innovatest products, Bowers Group (www.bowersgroup.co.uk
) has announced the launch
of the Innovatest BIOS Brinell optical scanner.
Manufactured in the Netherlands, this hand-held device can be easily connected to a standard laptop, tablet, or any device running a Windows 10 operating system; it includes easy-to-install software and can measure Brinell indents in a tenth of a second.
Martin Hawkins, UK sales manager for Bowers Group, said: “The Innovatest Brinell BIOS Scan system has been designed to make the daily testing of Brinell indents fast, accurate and reliable.
Because all materials have different finishes, fast light adjustment is mandatory for Brinell indent measurement. The scroll wheel provides an ultra-fast way of experimenting with light settings, which can then be stored for the current application.”
Suitable for Brinell indents of 10, 5, 2 and 1mm, the BIOS features a camera and electronics built around a tele-centric lens with an adjustable direct LED light module.
This illuminates the shadowed areas around the indents, resulting in a crisp high-resolution image.
The Innovatest BIOS also allows results to be directly saved in a CSV file, which can easily be imported into MS applications such as Word and Excel for further processing or report generating.
