The Shimadzu Micro Hardness Tester is capable of measuring both the static and the dynamic hardness of materials.
Indentation loads range from 10 to 1800 milliNewton, using a diamond Berkovitch indenter.
Using Oliver-Pharr fitting on the unloading data gives Hardness and reduced Youngs modulus data of the material.
