DiaMet Hardness Testing Software
DiaMet is designed with your application and ease of use in mind. Often a high level of Automation comes with a high level of complexity, both in set-up and in operation. DiaMet hardness testing software breaks with that convention and focuses on a fast and simple operation of your hardness test job to satisfy the needs of low trained operators, while maintaining the flexibility and high level of features required by expert users.
DiaMet software, Hardness testing made easy.Navigation within the DiaMet™ Software is made easy by its clean design and is supported by simple and intuitive gestures. Virtual tabs on top of the screen let you navigate between to Home, Program, Testing and Reporting. Comprehensive feedback is shown on the status bar, which make interactions clear and efficient. Being designed for touch panel use, with an entirely new look and feel, DiaMet is simple, useful, and smart to work with! Easy To Operate by touch, mouse or keyboard. DiaMet Enterprise options lets you Scan, Stitch and edge detect your sample to find exact location where you can drop in pre-configured testing templates (“specimen”) to speed up your operation.
Expert Control & Evaluation SoftwareDiaMet is optimized for evaluating Vickers, Rockwell, Brinell and Knoop measurements according to ISO 6506, ISO 6507, ISO 6508, ISO 4545 and ASTM E384, ASTM E92, ASTM E10 and ASTM E18. A standard DiaMet feature is an automatic symmetry calculation for Vickers, Knoop and Brinell indents. This extra validation, with clear visual indication, helps to ensure the results conform to standards.

DiaMet - Automation PackagesAutomated Microindentation system available with different levels of automation. All control of the hardness instrument can be handled through comprehensive software. Automatically test and measure indentations, as well as set up and run automatic testing sequences and generate reports through export of data with minimal operator interaction. All parameters of the test, such as load monitoring, dwell times, and focusing are controlled through the software providing a very user friendly system. Hardness conversion into other scales is supported.
Weld TestingWeld testing has never been easier. Use the intuitive weld pattern generator in the program section and align your pattern on each weld section within seconds.
Color MappingMapping gives an indication of the hardness distribution across a region of interest. Especially helpful for surface treated materials.
Geometric FunctionsBasic measurements support you across the board of hardness testing. Make simple length or angle measurements, circle or area calculations with our geometry tool.

Easy To Operate
By touch, mouse or keyboard
VersatileDiaMet is optimized for evaluating Macro-Vickers, Micro-Vickers, Knoop and Brinell indents according to ISO 6507, ISO 4545, ASTM E384, ISO 6506 and ASTM E10 standards. A standard DiaMet feature is an automatic symmetry calculation for both Knoop and Vickers. This extra validation, with clear visual indication, helps to ensure the results conform to standards.
For Vickers, Knoop & Brinell
ReportingVerify the readings in graph or result grid and re-measure or re-indent where applicable. Export results to PDF, printer, Excel® or a local database format.
You results with the world!
Perfect with windows 10DiaMet is designed for operation under Windows 10 and can interface with Office spreadsheet applications
One software for your complete hardness lab! DiaMet hardness testing software can be ordered for the following hardness testers:
Hardness MappingCreate a Hardness map of any cross section using thousands of indents and a user-defined color scale to unveil never disclosed hardness information of your samples.
- Ultimate level of detail of your process quality
- Determine weak points and helps identify test sites for regular CHD rows
- Provide a high level of detail for claim investigation
Specimen detection & templatesStore a combination of multiple patterns as a template, allowing DiaMet to position them for you the next time your need to test a same type of part.
Graphical Pattern EditorThe DiaMet™ pattern editor allows the user to create any number of patterns with a large number of variables. Create patterns with great precision and verify the result in the preview. Combine different patterns and even different loads in one program, and run them fully automatically. For example 3 CHD rows of 15 indents with HV1, and a core hardness determination out of an average of 5 indents HV10. This is the level of flexibility the VH3000-series offer.
Create the patterns for your application
Pattern Video OverlayDiaMet shows the operator where the indents will be made, even before the actual indent process takes place. The pattern video overlay function helps whilst positioning multiple test rows all across the specimen. The pattern video overlay scales automatically with every magnification, even within the macroview.
See where your indents will be placed
Macro View with Navigation MapUsing the macro view function, it’s possible to create a composite image of the specimen. The shape and size of the specimen is irrelevant, since the DiaMet software can scan any area within stage limits. Blend in the navigation mini map to navigate quickly and efficiently from test location to test location.
