Hello ,

Pursuant to a relentless mugging into material data sheets,I am still unable to identify the material of a component corresponding to the hardness of which i measured using an ultrasonic equipment. its 240-260 HV(vickers).I need to know the material for procuring the component to the desired dimensions.

That's going to be tricky. Not all materials have a unique hardness value. Take steel, for instance. Depending on the particular composition and heat treatment, steel can take on many different hardness values. Sometimes you can narrow down the type of material by visual inspection. You may have to test it for chemical composition or density to narrow the list of possible candidates.
