The GE Inspection Technologies MIC 20 Hardness Tester (formerly Krautkramer MIC 20) is a versatile two-in-one tester combining the ultrasonic contact impedance (UCI) and rebound test methods. The UCI method determines the hardness of a material on the basis of the size of the test indentation left behind in the material by a Vickers diamond after applying the test load. In the case of the rebound method, an impact body is impelled by spring force against the test surface. The impact and rebound velocities are each measured in a non-contact mode; the hardness value is calculated from these two values.

The MIC 20 automatically sets to the corresponding method as soon as you connect a UCI probe or a rebound impact device.

The two methods enable you to easily measure the hardness of your test object in a matter of seconds: place probe or impact device on the test object, and read the measured value on the display. In this way you can measure anywhere and in any direction. We have used a patented signal processing to also put this advantage into practice for the rebound hardness method.
