Metal hardness tester EQUOTIP BAMBINO 2


The Equotip Bambino 2 is a handy measuring device for an easy metal hardness test on most diverse part geometries. It combines modern electronics with a patented impact device that integrates the test cycle into one simple motion.

Proceq’s stand alone instrument for the metal hardness test does not require a separate indicating device, nor cables or PC hardware: It’s control menu and innovative features make the Equotip Bambino 2 the most ergonomic and easy to use integrated instrument for the metal hardness test.Automatic recognition of the impact direction and self diagnostics make the metal hardness test with the Equotip Bambino 2 incredibly easy. The large LCD display shows the individual readings and mean test results. Most common metal hardness conversions are included. The Equotip Bambino 2 is ideally suited for a quick on-site metal hardness test. 
The DL Accessory Kit is used to extend the range of applications. It allows testing in confined spaces and recessed surfaces through a long, slim testing nozzle.


  • Suitable for the metal hardness test on most materials. Also useful for curved and recessed sample surfaces.
  • Testing of metal work pieces when the test indentation should be as small as possible, in line with non-destructive testing (NDT)
  • Determination of the hardness of pre-assembled machines or large steel and cast constructions (e.g.  in steel mills)
  • Metal hardness test in confined spaces along process chains (e.g. in heat treatment shops)
  • Quick or manually documented acceptance tests and checks of incoming goods (e.g. from automotive sub-suppliers)
  • Off-site metal hardness test (e.g. technical goods purchasing or consulting)


  • Rapid reload and trigger mechanism and automatic compensation for impact direction (360°)
  • Wide measurement range on most common hardness scales (HL, HV, HB, HRC, HRB, HS)
  • Immediate display of single readings in large bright digits + average of a measurement series of the metal hardness test
  • 2 in 1: Conveniently switch between universal Equotip D probe and slim DL nozzle (accessory)
  • Scratch-proof, hard-coated, zinc alloy metal housing – rugged and durable, compact in size
  • Intelligent, on/standby power switching for optimal battery charge life
  • Free firmware updates via the internet through USB

Product Variation

  • The DL Accessory Kit expands the application range of the Equotip Bambino 2 by extending its reach to confined spaces through a long, slim test nozzle.
  • Proceq offers a wide selection of support rings to permit the metal hardness test on a great variety of surface geometries.
  • Proceq also offers an advanced version of the Bambino 2, the Equotip Piccolo 2, which in addition offers measurement statistics, additional conversions, data storage and data management on a PC.


  • Standard 2-year limited warranty on electronic parts
  • Optional extended warranty periods up to 3 additional years
