Hardness is decisive for the machinability and wear resistance of a material. The hardness is related to the mechanical properties of a material.

Brinell, Vickers and Rockwell are the units most commonly used. Much will be explained about this during the theory section.

Two well-known mobile methods are the dynamic method and Ultrasonic Contact Impedance (UCI). The dynamic method measures by means of a spring mechanism and the UCI method by means of an oscillating shaft, with which the students will work extensively during the practical part.
