Shore hardness testing requires the use of an extremely versatile portable hardness tester that can always adapt to your changing needs.
From on-site tests to laboratory tests, from hard plastic to soft rubber, from just measuring hardness values to saving and processing statistical data: at Axiotek we have just the portable Shore hardness tester that you are looking for.
Analogue or electronic? With or without bench top stand? With manual or motorized bench top stand? We give you maximum freedom of choice in carrying out your Shore hardness tests.
The portable hardness tester, available in the analogue and electronic version, can be used alone or combined with either a manual or motorised bench top stand. No need for adapters or special configurations. And the stands are compatible for all tests, from D scale to OOO scale. As simple as completing a Shore test.
As simple as completing a Shore test.
Whether you choose the “classic” analogue version or the “modern” electronic version, our portable hardness tester will accompany you everywhere while carrying out your Shore hardness tests.
The tungsten carbide indenter and the movement of the internal gears with low friction coefficient are just some of the secrets of their speed and precision.
If you are looking for a robust and reliable hand-held measuring instrument for on-site Shore hardness testing (on a construction site, the production floor, etc.), the analogue version is for you.
We’ve been making this model for decades, following a proven formula.
Its uniqueness is in the high-quality components, which ensure long life: we have customers who have been using theirs constantly for 20 years now, without ever changing them!
These factors are what make our portable hardness tester a product of excellence:
Our portable analogue Shore hardness tester is available for all Shore hardness tests on all polymer, elastomer, rubber and gel-like materials (such as plastics, rubber, medical goods, papers and sponges): A, B, C, D, DO, E, M, O, OO, OOO in accordance with the ISO 48-4 and ASTM D2240 international reference standards.
Moreover, thanks to special applications, it can even measure the hardness of extremely small samples, hollow samples or samples with curved surfaces, such as O-rings, tires, rubber rollers, etc.
Use your portable hardness tester, either analogue or electronic, with one of our bench top stands. You will enjoy maximum repeatability and accuracy in your Shore hardness tests.
You will enjoy maximum repeatability and accuracy in your Shore hardness tests.
All this thanks to the correct orthogonality between the indenter and the sample being tested, the uniformity in the application of the force and the control system ensuring appropriate positioning of the stand on the workbench.
All this is for you, to help you minimize human influence when performing tests in full compliance with ISO 48-4 and ASTM D2240 standards.
Our system with addition and removal of calibrated masses allows you to use the same stand for all the Shore hardness tests, from the 5 kg for the D method, to 400 g for the OOO method.
Simple and suitable for all needs: this is DX 136, our manual bench top stand compatible with your analogue or electronic Shore portable hardness tester.
Place it in your laboratory, production department, technical office, or warehouse: its compact size and sturdy construction make it suitable for any environment. A true “no frills” stand that is easy to transport and can be used wherever needed. Due to its completely mechanical operation, it does not require power supply.
Simply press a lever: by applying the force prescribed by the reference standard, the hardness tester makes contact with the test specimen.
With 180 mm available to accommodate your samples (which can be increased on request), the DX136 is the ideal hand-held bench top stand for all Shore hardness tests.
Our most demanding customers want maximum precision, speed and automation in their Shore hardness testing. And our DX 835 was conceived just for that.
A motorized bench top stand that can also electronically control the descent speed of the measuring probe, with programmable values from 0.5 mm/s to 16 mm/s: developed to meet the regulatory requirements of Shore AM and M tests, but usable for all Shore test methods in conjunction with the relevant portable hardness tester.
The motorised system does the work for you: just place the sample being tested in position and press a button. This will save you valuable time that you can spend on other productive activities.
DX 835 is designed to help you perform Shore hardness tests on all types of samples. Even on the most complex objects such as O-rings: the plate is compatible with accessories specially developed to secure tiny objects in position.
We will help you to find a solution for any after-sale issues that you might have. Simply call us on our customer service dedicated line.
AXIOTEK premises are in a highly strategic position that allows us to easily reach most of the industrial areas in northern Italy. And we will bring to you all the expertise that you need to make sure that your Shore hardness tester never stands still.
