Product Description
Highly integrated, integrated Leeb hardness tester with compact structure and sturdy housing. Ideal for fast on-site hardness testing. Optional DL probe for narrow spaces and concave surfaces. Equotip Piccolo 2 transfers data to a computer.

Product Principle
When measuring with Piccolo 2 / Bambino 2, an impact body with a hard metal ball indenter impacts the sample to be measured, and then rebounds under the impulse of the spring energy generated by the impact. Before and after the impact, the permanent magnet in the impact body will pass a coil, and this forward and backward movement will generate a voltage signal V in the coil. This sensing signal is proportional to the velocity of the impact body. Multiplying the ratio of the rebound velocity vr to the impact velocity vi by 1000 will give a hardness value HL (Leeb hardness). HL is a direct measurement of hardness. HLD refers to the detection using a D-type device (27 mm long impact body with a flat support ring), and HLDL refers to the thin and light in the DL accessory kit (82 mm long impact body with a support ring with a slender probe) Detection by the probe.

Difference between Piccolo 2 and Bambino 2
Equotip Piccolo 2 and Bambino 2 are both suitable for testing metal hardness in the field with the smallest possible indentation. Reliable design and large display allow users to use in dusty working environments with low visibility. Both products also show metal hardness on all commonly used scales.
Piccolo 2 has the same features as Bambino 2 and has the following additional features:
1) User-defined hardness conversion
2) Piccolink software with the following applications:
  a) Systematic real-time monitoring of hardness
  b) Automatic testing during continuous production
  c) Evaluation and processing of measurement data
  d) Remote Piccolo 2 settings
Equotip Piccolo 2 and Bambino 2 come with D-type impact devices. This impact device is interchangeable with the optional DL impact device and is useful for measurements in restricted areas.
