Buying a hardness tester is not an expense but an investment. At METSUCO, we recommend our clients understand four main factors affecting their decision. Of course, pricing is always a consideration for our clients, but we can help them choose the best tester for their needs. We help our clients evaluate four key buying criteria.
Do you need to take your hardness tester to different locations and work sites? If so, you need a portable hardness tester. Benchtop hardness testers are more durable and useful for certifying parts and processes but won’t be transportable.
It doesn’t need to be repeated that high-quality equipment is durable, costs less in repairs, and provides more accurate results. It will have higher resale and replacement value. We help our clients find the right hardness tester without overspending.
Fit for Purpose
Before buying a hardness tester, make sure you know exactly what job needs to be done. Do you need it for certification or just to verify a few parts? Sometimes clients will overpay for features that they will never use. We can help pick the right hardness tester that satisfies your needs.
After Sales Support
Many of our clients have owned the same hardness tester for decades. They need support in training new employees how to use it, calibration services, and a reliable supply of consumables and accessories. These include hardness test blocks, indenters, and anvils fit for purpose. For every hardness tester we sell, we provide manufacturer-supported training, calibration services, and a full line of hardness test blocks, hardness tester indenters, and other accessories.
We welcome the opportunity to help and advise you with your next hardness tester purchase. Call METSUCO at 713.827.0700 or visit metsuco.com. We carry all of the leading brands, including Mitutoyo, King Tester, Phase II, and others.
