Your entry into nanoindentation.

Cost-effective entry-level instrument for microhardness determination of layers in the micrometer range.


Simplest and fastest
sample preparation on the market
Lowest cost
device on the market
Intuitive and
simple use

Reliable and precise microhardness determination.

The cost-effective FISCHERSCOPE® HM2000 S hardness tester allows you to quickly and easily test the mechanical and elastic properties of surfaces, usually without sample preparation. This makes it ideal for laboratory and production use. 

Quick-measure design.

Fast measuring without time-consuming sample preparation

Grows with you.

Upgradable to the automated HM2000 variant


Optimal cost-benefit ratio

Easy to use.

Intuitive operation with WIN-HCU® software

Built to last.

Robust design for a particularly long product life cycle

  • Features
