Qness (QATM) Model 150 CS ECO combines high-quality workmanship with maximum operation simplicity.


The Rockwell hardness tester Qness 150 CS ECO is part of the QATM ECO product line and combines high-quality workmanship with maximum operation simplicity. The characteristic “C” shaped machine frame in robust and compact design (“S” for “small”) gives the product its name.

The proven concept with fixed test head and up/down moving spindle has been standard in Rockwell hardness testing for many decades and is ideally suited for small to medium-sized test pieces and application in almost any work surroundings.

Product Advantages

  • Large test force range (1 kg – 250 kg)
  • Direct depth gauging system
  • Robust, welded steel frame
  • High-quality steel sheet covers
  • Integrated LED workspace lighting
  • Capacitive 7” touch screen display

QNESS 150 CS Eco

Normcompliant with a direct depht-gauging system 

Maximum QATM precision


QATM configures the Rockwell hardness tester Qness 150 CS ECO with a direct, ultra-precise HEIDENHAIN depth-gauging system, positioned exactly on the axis of the indenter. This omits measurement inaccuracies caused by deformation in the system. Another unbeatable benefit: Indenting depth can be gauged directly – and absolutely, and can be easily calibrated in accordance with the latest Rockwell norms ASTM E 18:2020 and DIN EN  ISO 6508.
