Automatic hardness tester [GX-02 series] can perform the measurement with the operating speed, the measuring weight and the pressing-surface dimensions which are specified in JIS K 6253 “Determination of hardness – Vulcanized rubber and Thermoplastic rubber”.
Benefits of Automatic test method:
- Micro-hardness can be measured by 8/1 scale each durometer of type A, E, E2, OO, FO in addition to IRHD /M method.
- Hardness of O ring and small rubber parts can be measured automatically.
- Voice coil motor is adopted for load system. Friction and reproducibility of inner mechanism is improved, which is different from weight system.
- It is plug-in type. Plunger (contact point) can be easily changed and recalibration for test method change is not needed.
- As test piece table is wide, various measuring jigs can be set up.
