How to measure the depth for case hardened steel?

Any suggestions. Thanks.

Re: How to measure the depth for case hardened steel?
You can use resistivity (M100A) to measure case depth by correlation. Also possible is UT methold. Please see NDTAutomation.com web site.

: No special equipment? Can you sacrifice an item? If so, machine it obliquely and then sequentially microhardness by staggered locations (so that indentations do not interfere with one another).

Thanks. I am looking for nondestructive methods.

Re: How to measure the depth for case hardened steel?
Does the M100A apply the four-point direct current potential drop (DCPD) method? Thank.

You can use metallurgical optical microscope in metallography, but inspection must be located on the cross section direction of the sample without any etchant

Re: How to measure the depth for case hardened steel?

Yes, 2 outer probes inject a constant current while the inner probes measure the IR drop. This can easily be correlated to a hardness value.

We have developed an ultrasonic technique to measure the case depth of induction hardened materials, such as bearings, crankshafts, spindles, etc., nondestructively. Several systems costumized to various applications are on the market since 1994. Please logon to our website for more information or or contact me via email at mhd@qnetworld.com.
I hope this helps.

Re: How to measure the depth for case hardened steel?
Thanks, Phil. How good is the correlation? Most of the parts are large long bars. Is it ok to measure with M100A? How about small parts?

Thanks. Could you please tell me how good is the correlation? Also, what is the advantages of UT over DCPD method?
