After successful implementation of two hardness standardizing machines at TSE (Turkish Standards Institution) in Rockwell and Brinell-Vickers hardness scales separately and deciding to combine them in one machine with a newer design and install it in Hardness Laboratory of UME (National Metrology Institute of Republic of Turkey) it was planned to design and develop a deadweight type Brinell Hardness standard machine at UME for high load scales within the scope of an internally funded project. In this paper the design of High Load Brinell Hardness Standard Machine with dead weight force application system realized by UME Hardness Laboratory is explained.
