AMETEK makes a variety of Newage indenters and indenter accessories. According to the latest standards, there are changes to both Rockwell and Brinell scales. The test method for Rockwell testing (ASTM E-18-08a) only allows the use of tungsten carbide ball indenters.

if in doubt we recommend that you contact us, for assistance in specifying and ordering an indenter for your RockwellBrinell or Microhardness application.
