Special Features
Already own a micro hardness tester? No problem!
Now you too can take advantage of the Clemex CMT.HD technology. One of the many advantages of the CMT.HD software is its adaptability with any micro hardness tester on the market.  Please use our quote system to request a quote on retrofitting your hardness tester. 
                      Metvision 1.3 Mp digital camera offers outstanding image qualiy at 1280 x 1024 resolution.


When a macro or micro hardness testing solution that produces reliable, accurate and repeatable test results is needed, choose from the Clemex CMT.HD line of (single or dual) hardness testing solutions. Field proven systems, they offer unparalleled capabilities and are fully ASTM E-384 and DIN/ISO 6507 compliant.

Intelligent Workflow - 4 easy steps to run your test
Clemex CMT.HD is the top-of-the-line automated microhardness tester. With 4 easy steps, it provides added precision when positioning indents thanks to its integrated image stitching technique and its layout tools. By visualizing the complete sample, no matter its size, traverses and/or patterns can now be mapped-out with unequaled precision. Auto focusing, and automatic measuring and reporting, allow this system to function unattended, thus increasing throughput and productivity
See the Entire Sample
Place the sample in the sample-holder and, with one click, build a mosaic image of the sample and set reference points for one or more traverses using the annotation tools.
Full Sample View
Set-Up Traverses/Patterns
Open, modify, or create new traverses/patterns using reference points or lines. Traverses and patterns can be individually adjusted.
Click & Walk Away
Clemex CMT.HD intelligently follows the predefined patterns, indents the sample, focuses when needed, measures, and generates data dynamically. Everything is automated, freeing users for other tasks.
Get Results
Review results in graphical and/or tabular format. Export results to the spreadsheet application of your choice, or simply print standard or customized reports.

Intelligent Mosaic Images
Get a detailed image of the whole sample in seconds, using our exclusive Clemex Mosaic function with the 2.5x objective. No matter the size of the sample, get a crisp and precise image. Thanks to this unique feature developed by Clemex, obtain a perfect, high resolution, and evenly illuminated view of the full sample. With Intelligent Mosaic Images an operator can see micro structural changes, Heat-Affected or Heat-Treated zones, and much more. Reference points for traverses can be set exactly where they are needed so that indents yield significant data. High-res mosaic images can be saved for later use, in analysis reports, or for archiving purposes.

Intelligent Layout Tools
Positioning reference points and measuring where traverses are to be placed is made easy using the annotation tools in Clemex CMT.HD. Conveniently located on the side of the Image Window, these tools perform multiple functions:
  • Finding the center of the sample
  • Drawing straight and/or parallel lines
  • Adding ticker marks
  • Adding measurements for report purposes
  • And more…

    No matter the complexity of the pattern layout, combining intelligent mosaics with annotation tools allows traverses and/or patterns to be positioned precisely where they are needed.

Intelligent & Precise Positioning
Clemex Mosaic Feature
Clemex CMT.HD is the first ever hardness tester to offer a complete, high definition image of a sample, no matter its size. This innovative feature provides an “aerial view” of the sample, offering sharp close-ups as well as global views. The Mosaic Image makes it possible to position as many as 99 traverses – to within a few micron

Unique Reference Circle Tool
This exceptional tool allows indents to be positioned at precise distances from the sample’s edge. The Reference Circle is the ideal tool for irregular or curved samples, where indents need to be at a given distance from the edge. Used as a visual guide in conjunction with the Stage Pattern Window, once a radius is specified, the distance between indents is determined by a Y value that resets every time a field is added to the pattern.

Multidirectional Traverses
Thanks to the powerful Clemex Hardness Tester stage control interface, single or multiple traverses/patterns can be rapidly created. Save, copy, or paste traverses/patterns to predefined locations with a simple click of the mouse. The T-Bar tool rotates traverses to any angle to ensure its perpendicularity with the sample edge or to accommodate sample tilt. Up to 99 patterns or traverses can be created, with each traverse comprising up to 32,000 indents.
