The device is used to determine the hardness of metallic materials according to Vickers and Brinell. As well as to determine the hardness of organic coatings. Knoop hardness can be determined on thin metallic layers. It is suitable for tests on case-hardened and nitrided workpieces, lapped precision parts in precision engineering and optics as well as on measuring surfaces, cutting edges and foils.
