Automatic Shore / IRHD hardness testing systemThe Digi Test II represents a significant leap forward in material hardness testing, combining German engineering excellence with cutting-edge technology to deliver a system of exceptional precision, reliability, and user-friendliness. The Automatic Shore, IRHD and VLRH Hardness Testing system features four main components: an electronic unit, a loading module, a test stand, and interchangeable measuring units for Shore, IRHD, and VLRH methods. This modular design facilitates ease of use and provides accurate and repeatable results across a diverse array of material types.

Designed to serve a number of industries, the Digi Test II’s flexibility is unmatched. It finds application in the automotive, aerospace, defense, rubber, and plastic industries, offering a comprehensive solution to hardness testing requirements. Digi Test II sets the benchmark for quality control, guaranteeing that every measurement contributes to the highest product excellence standards.

Key Features and Advantages of the Digi Test II

Digi Test II is distinguished by advanced features designed to meet modern industry demands. One of its most innovative capabilities is automatic surface detection technology, enabling accurate hardness measurements on any surface type, including concave and convex. This feature ensures that regardless of the sample’s geometry, the tool can adapt its indenter length for precise measurement. 

Digi Test II’s design also includes ease of operation. The system’s electronic unit acts as the command center, featuring a clear display of measured values, a navigational menu, and data output. With programmable measuring times ranging from 1 to 99 seconds and an accuracy of 0.1 (1/10 of Shore value), it minimizes operator influence and guarantees repeatable results. The intuitive interface and USB connectivity for data transfer exemplify the system’s commitment to user-friendly operation.

Customization is at the heart of Digi Test II. Recognizing the diverse needs of the industries it serves, the system provides interchangeable measuring units and customizable sample holders. This flexibility means that whether the requirement is for testing rubber tubes, hoses, or specialized materials, the tester can be customized to specific testing requirements.

Completing the package is a comprehensive accessory kit, providing Digi Test II readiness for immediate deployment. From standard sample holders to industry-specific positioning devices, the kit equips users with everything needed to test without delay.

Certifications and Quality Assurance of the Digi Test II

The Digi Test II, the masterpiece of German engineering, embodies the highest standards of accuracy and reliability in material hardness testing. This system complies with but excels in globally recognized standards. Among these, ASTM D2240 and DIN ISO 7619 are the most important, guiding rubber and polymer material hardness measurements through Shore scale testing.

ASTM D2240 – a key standard in the rubber and plastic industries, specifies the methodology for determining materials’ indentation hardness using a durometer. Hence, it is essential for evaluating properties that affect product durability and performance. DIN ISO 7619 complements this by setting out the requirements for rubber hardness testing, again using the Shore method.

Moreover, Digi Test II’s compliance with DIN EN ISO 868 and NF EN ISO 868 further broadens its application, enabling the testing of plastics’ hardness. These standards reflect the tester’s versatility in assessing different material types, from flexible rubbers to rigid plastics, ensuring they meet the exacting demands of industries such as automotive, aerospace, and medical technologies.

The DAkkS-Certificates underscore tester’s compliance with these standards, representing a mark of quality. This certification is not just a formal endorsement but a reflection of Digi Test II’s capability to perform consistent, reliable hardness tests under varied conditions. In quality assessments and compliance checks, it reassures manufacturers and quality control professionals of the instrument’s accuracy and validity.
