The New and Improved IRHD Hardness Tester is Here!

The new digital, automatic durometer from NextGen Material Testing has arrived to fulfill all your hardness testing and quality control needs.

The Digi Test from NextGen Material Testing is now available for purchase bigger, better and faster than ever before!  This automatic Shore, IRHD, and VLRH testing system comes equipped with an electronic unit, loading module, test stand, and a measuring unit which can be interchanged depending on measuring methods used, which can include Shore, IRHD, and VLRH.

The Digi Test is an IRHD Hardness Tester and can measure hardness on both concave and convex surfaces. Its automatic surface detection technology and adjustable indenter length enable it to measure hardness for any surface on a sample, while most durometers can only measure the hardness of flat surfaces, making it versatile and easy to use. International Rubber Hardness Degrees (IRHD) is a standard measurement of the hardness of vulcanized rubber or thermoplastic rubber surfaces, as well as the hardness of curved surfaces, which relates strongly to Young’s modulus of the sample.

This new and improved automatic IRHD Hardness Tester features sample holders of several shapes for different sample shapes and sizes, although customized holders are also offered for further matching your samples to the best holder. Official DKD/DAkkS certificates are offered for this measuring device as well.

Low price and portability are two standout qualities of this digital Shore durometer system. It offers ease of use, a quality that applies to all of NextGen Material Testing’s products, and comes fully certified.

Ensure accurate results, quality control, a low price, and ease of use by using the Digi Test II automatic, digital durometer from NextGen Material Testing for all your Shore, IRHD, and VLRH hardness testing needs.
