The PCE-Instruments PCE-2000N hardness meter uses the Leeb rebound method. This is a dynamic hardness test method in which a standardized test specimen, usually a hard metal ball, is hit with defined impact energy on a test surface. The impact of the hard metal ball on the test surface results in a plastic deformation of the surface at the point of impact. From this deformation results in an energy loss, which is proportional to the workpiece hardness and can be determined by the ratio of rebound to impact velocity of the specimen.
