Hardness testing is a crucial inspection technique used across various industries to assess the resistance of materials to deformation or scratching. This method provides valuable insights into a material's mechanical properties, making it an essential tool for quality control and product performance evaluation. By subjecting a sample to controlled force or indentation, hardness testing helps determine its hardness, which can be indicative of its durability, wear resistance, and overall suitability for specific applications.
