On 27 February 2018, the Materials Testing Office of North Rhine-Westphalia (MPA NRW) traditionally hosted the "Forum Härte 2018", which provided information on new developments and opportunities as well as current news in the standardisation of hardness testing. With Natascha Kritzler, Hegewald & Peschke Meß- und Prüftechnik GmbH was also represented as guest and exhibitor.
The good cooperation between MPA NRW and Hegewald & Peschke has already existed for several years and is actively maintained by both sides. For Natascha Kritzler, this visit was something very special:"I am very pleased that, even after leaving the MPA NRW, I am still able to have a good relation with my old colleagues and continue to work with them as a partner". As a representative of Hegewald & Peschke Meß- und Prüftechnik GmbH, Natascha Kritzler answered the questions of the interested participants.
Mrs. Kritzler demonstrated the portable hardness tester "Computest SCX" of the company ERNST, whose mobile hardness testers are distributed Germany-wide in exclusive agency of the company Hegewald & Peschke. In addition to the Computest Scx, the Dynatest Scx and the Esatest Scx are among the best-known mobile hardness testers from ERNST. These mobile hardness testers are used for various testing applications and can be certified according to the standards DIN 50157 and 50158.
