UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2

NOVOTEST T-U2 is the best price hardness tester in the world that works on UCI (Ultrasonic Contact Impedance) technology.

Unlike the Leeb hardness tester, such as the Leeb Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-D2 and the Leeb Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-D3, UCI hardness tester can also be used with small or thin-walled products, as well as parts of complex shape or with areas that need to be tested in hard-to-reach places.

The device with wide functionality and high reliability is UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2. This is a device that has been manufactured by our company for more than 10 years, and has established itself as the most optimal option in the world market for the combination of price – quality.



The main advantages of the UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2 are:


The UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2 can be used for samples from 1 mm, and even less with special tool for thin sheets.

Using this device, the operator can, without additional fixation and accessories, carry out hardness testing of products weighing just 100g or even less.


The UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2 main purposes are products of complex shape (gear teeth, bearings etc.) and hard-to-reach places that need to be tested (grooves, radius surfaces, welds and heat affected zones etc.)

The imprint after measuring with UCI hardnes tester is very small, the method is considered the most non-destructive of the known implemented in portable hardness testers. Also, the shallow penetration of the indenter makes it possible to measure the hardness of hardened layers, such as nitriding, cementation, etc.


The UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2 can be equipped with probes with different loads according to customer choice. Descriptions of possible options are presented in the table below:

The UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2 probe has a nozzle that helps the user to maintain the perpendicularity of the indenter penetration into flat surfaces, which significantly reduces the possibility of operator error. Also, using a special washer, the UCI probe can be installed on radial surfaces, or it can be used without a nozzle at all to measure the hardness of small parts and grooves.


The UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2 comes with a shockproof silicone case that prevents the device from malfunctioning when dropped from a height of up to several meters, which makes the device reliable and durable.

UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2 also comes with special software for operate with the device archive and subsequent data transfer for processing in convenient formats.
