Precidur Legacy Hardness Testers | Buehler

PRECIDUR Hardness Testing Software In 2008, through a puchase of the company that developed the PRECIDUR Hardness testing software, product portfolio was expanded to include a powerful software system. The PRECIDUR software complements the Wilson Hardness product portfolio with its well-known flexibility and powerful automatic Vickers/Knoop measurements.

PRECIDUR was developed in Germany by Fritz Müller GmbH in the early 1990's and is used on many Micro Hardness testers by a variety of manufacturers. It allows you to control your micro-hardness tester via computer and uses a camera to automatically measure your indents. It's programming features allow full-automatic patterning.

Today, PRECIDUR lives on the Wilson Hardness Minuteman Software that is optimized for our Tukon 1102/1202 Hardness Tester as well as the Tukon 2500 Knoop/Vickers Hardness Tester. The Minuteman software being backwards compatible with PRECIDUR, also can be used to upgrade your (micro) hardness tester.

There are three Software packages available:


Basic Software

Connect a camera to your Vickers/Knoop hardness testers and measure the indents on your PC screen. A powerful data management tool allows you to evaluate and store your data.

Semi-Automatic Software

Helps you setting up easy traverses for a CHD or NHT measurement, and eliminates the user influence by measuring the indent diagonals automatically.

Full-Automatic Software

Using a camera, motorised XY-stage and auto focus, the full automatic Precidur/Minuteman systems can take and measure hundreds of indents without operator interference.
