Testing for hardness
In order to determine the hardness of our cobalt drill bits we commissioned SGS testing to conduct a Hardness check to BS EN ISO 6508-1:2016 using the Vickers testing method.
We were delighted to achieve an average hardness of 66 on the Rockwell scale.
You can watch the video of the hardness test being carried out.
