Nov. 2015: An active year for Phase II, we have seen numerous product upgrades, additions and replacements.
The Phase II Hardness Tester group led the way. After adding the PHT-5000 to our lineup in 2014, we have upgraded the software for the digital brinell optical system. The PHT-1800 portable hardness tester was also upgraded, both in software and hardware. The PHT-1800 is now the #1 selling portable hardness tester in the USA today. Both the PHT-3500 and 3300 portable hardness testers, have received software upgrades. The PHT-1700 portable hardness tester will be revamped once again, using a similar design platform as the pht-1800. The PHT-1500 has been discontinued. Also, in the ultrasonic portable hardness tester realm, Phase II will be making new product introductions by the end of the 2015 year. Phase II will greatly expand our scope in this small but actively growing part of our hardness tester world. Bench hardness testers will soon see an upgrade of the 900-332 tall boy Rockwell hardness tester. The body design will be brought in line with the 900-331 workhorse, Rockwell hardness tester. Phase II is now working on a new series of highly advanced micro Vickers hardness testers and macro Vickers hardness testers. These models will represent the latest in Vickers hardness testing technology. Phase II hardness test blocks and accessories are always hot commodity itemsÖand Shore A & D Durometers have a seen a body style upgrade recently, due to come out before year end.
The Phase II Surface Roughness Tester/profilometer product group will see great change In this coming quarter. Phase II will completely revamp our SRG-4500 top line surface roughness tester/profilometer. It will be replaced with the SRG-4600. This new version surface roughness tester/profilometer, will have a low profile design, sd card, Bluetooth capabilities and increased functionality. The Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge product group has seen the recent replacement of the UTG-2700, with the updated version of the UTG-2900 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge. This model can now check thickness through coatings up to 90mm thick. The UTG-2800 software has been upgraded, along with a slight change in interface. The UTG-2600 has been discontinued. The Coating Thickness Gauges should see some new additions this coming quarter. Just arrived is the latest addition to our Vibration Meter product group.
