Tolerance Limits 
The Datagest program allows you to define specific tolerance limits for each Product, Customer, Test Procedure and Aging Treatment.
For each result to be calculated, tolerance limits and alarm limits can be defined.
The comparison between the results and the tolerance limits is carried out automatically at the end of each test: the test results are colored (Green, Yellow or Red) based on the outcome of the comparison with the limits.
The outcome of the check is saved in the database together with the results.

Statistics of ongoing tests 
The programs automatically process the statistical analysis of the tests in progress by calculating:
• Maximum
• Minimum
• Average
• Median
• Standard deviation
• Cp
• Cpk
In addition, the Gaussian curve relative to the results is shown together with the tolerance limits to immediately highlight the progress of the tests in progress.
The Datagest program allows you to process more detailed statistics related to the saved results and to represent X and R Charts by grouping data by order, batch, batch, date, etc.

Management of Test Results 
The results and test curves of all the tests carried out are saved in the Gibitre SQL database and are available through the Datagest program.

Datagest is the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) which is always installed in combination with all Gibitre instrument-control programs.
The program is the collector for all the test result produced with the instruments connected and permits to manage the common Archives used by the instruments (Product List, Customer List, Tolerance limits, Order List, etc)

Universal Centring Device for O-Rings 
The centering device allows to quickly carry out hardness tests on O-rings with rope between 1 and 11 mm and internal diameter up to 200 mm.
To carry out the test, the piece is positioned on the extension plate integrated between the two adjustment micro-cylinders.
The adjustment wheel allows you to set the distance between the cylinders according to the rope of the o-ring.
The fixing clip allows to maintain the correct positioning of curved pieces
The device is applied to the standard plate of the instrument by magnetic fixing which allows its rapid installation and removal.

Diaphragm centering device for O-rings 
The device permits to perform automatic multiple tests on O-ring or round parts with external diameter between 4.5 and 75 mm. The device consist of a diaphragm to fix the external diameter of the o-ring and of a gauge-meter for the adjustment of the position of the center of the diaphragm.
The use is very simple:
1) Open the diaphragm and put the o-ring in the center of the device.
2) Close the diaphragm using the open-close leverage until the o-ring is fixed in the center of the device
3) Use the gauge-meter of adjust the position of the device according to the diameter and cross-section of the o-ring
4) Start a multiple test session to make automatically tests in different points of the sample.
To test several o-rings with the same dimensions, you only need to replace the o-ring on the device without any further regulation.
