The B.O.S.S.™ brinell optical scanning system measures your brinell impressions faster, more accurately and more consistently. And it improves your quality control with advanced data acquisition and analysis capabilities, including the ability to save your high-resolution image of our impression to file.
The B.O.S.S. system includes a high-resolution video scanning head with video imagery software. The software operates in a Windows® environment. The software and scanning head can be added to your existing computer, or we can furnish a complete “turn-key” system using a desktop, laptop or tablet-style computer with printer and with mobile protective cabinet.
Operating is simple. Use the video scanning head and “click” onto your impression. A high-resolution still image of the impression is created and measured with the video software to 0.01mm resolution. Even measurements on ground or smooth surface, dark gray iron or light reflective aluminum are quickly and easily interpreted. Your measurement will display the image, the brinell measurement (HB5 or HB30), indenter and load information, even your tolerance results. Tolerance warning values can be used so images are identified using green/yellow/red indicators to signify the tolerance type. Out-of-tolerance results can be signified using an audible alarm. Results can automatically be converted to other scales according to ASTM E-140.
Statistical reports can be created including X-bar & R charts and histograms. Averaging of results within a user-defined group of test can be performed automatically. The B.O.S.S. system ensures consistency, accuracy and efficiency- regardless of operator.
