Automatic Stand-alone Hardness Units
Automatic instruments for hardness measurement. Available hardness scales are: Shore A, Shore D, Shore A0, Shore 00, IRHD (Micro, Normal, Hard, Low).


Standards the instrument complies with:   
ASTM D1414;   ASTM D1415;   ASTM D2240;   FIAT 50408;   FIAT 50411;   ISO 48;   ISO 868;   ISO 7619-1;    

Overview 
Stand-alone automatic hardness units are independent hardness measurement devices designed for the execution of hardness tests according to a specific hardness scale.
Stand-Alone automatic units have been designed to meet the requirements of research labs and for production control.

Instruments Characteristics 
Available hardness scales are:
Shore A,
Shore D,
Shore A0,
Shore 00,
IRHD-Micro,
IRHD-Normal,
IRHD-Hard,
IRHD-Low.
The solid construction of the instrument, the high quality sensors
and the lifting system with ball screw
makes them ideal both for research
purposes and for heavy-duty production control.
Each Hardness Unit is composed by the following parts: mechanical
structure, Testing Unit, Sample Holder with motor-controlled rotation,
motor-controlled-Lifting System
with ball screw, Electronic card
All the parts, which compose the
instrument, have been specifically
designed for easy interchange in
case of failure.

Instrument control 
Stand-alone hardness units can be
controller both with Gibitre Hardness
Software and with Gibitre Electronic
Console.
In case of software control of more
hardness units, each hardness unit
can be connected to a standard pc
using its usb cable and can be used
simultaneously.




Accredia Calibration of the instrument 
The instrument is available with ACCREDIA calibration certificate. The certificate is issued by Gibitre ISO 17025 Accredited laboratory.

Standard Calibration service for IRHD Hardness Tester 
The calibration is performed with reference to the requirements of ISO 48 standard.
The service includes:
• Ordinaly maintenance of the instrument
• Visual inspection of the Indentor.
• Calibration of the Pre-Load, of the Main Load and of the weight of the Anular foot.
• Calibration of the force apllication time for Pre-Load and Main-Load (NEW)
• Calibration of the displacement of the indentor in correspondence with several IRHD Hardness readings
• Pre-calibration and Post-Calibration test of the instrument with reference test samples (NEW)
• Issue and e-mail shipment of the Calibration Certificate with traceability to primary standards.


Standard Calibration service for a SHORE Hardness Tester 
The calibration is performed with reference to the requirements of ISO 7619-1 standard.
The service includes:
• Ordinaly maintenance of the instrument
• Visual inspection of the Indentor.
• Calibration of the total run of the indentor (readings at 0 and 100 Shore points).
• Calibration of the displacement of the indentor and of the force applied by the indentor in correspondence with several Shore readings (20, 40, 50, 60, 80, 90 Shore).
• Calibration of the force application time (NEW)
• Issue and e-mail shipment of the Calibration Certificate with traceability to primary standards.



Modular Construction 
The main parts of the instrument are: the measuring unit, the sample displacement system and the electronic card.
Those parts have been developed to permit quick and independent replacement in case of failure. This characteristic ensures short recovery time and low maintenance cost.

 

 



Industry 4.0 integration 
The instrument and the software have been specifically developed to optimize integration with other environments.
The database in SQL format and the Gibitre_Company_Connect program allows you synchronize your company management software with Gibitre database and to speed up the identification of the tests and to use bar-code readers or similar devices.
The automatic logging service permits to send alarm information to the cloud-service platform of Gibitre Instruments in order to optimize the reaction times of the Service Support.
