Know Your Options for Optimal Results


Hardness Testing Instruments

Welcome to Bareiss, the company that specialized in hardness testing instruments! In this article, we will explore the world of hardness testers and their importance in determining the hardness values of various materials such as plastic, rubber, foam, polymers, and elastomers. At Bareiss, we take pride in offering a comprehensive range of advanced material testing equipment, enabling industries to ensure the quality and reliability of their products.


The Importance of Hardness Testing

For the optimal use of hardness testers first understand the importance of hardness testing. Undoubtedly, hardness testing is a critical process in the manufacturing and quality control of materials used in various industries. The hardness of a material provides valuable insights into its mechanical properties, durability, and overall performance. Whether you are in the pharmaceutical, food, or elastomer industry, accurate and reliable hardness testing is vital for maintaining product quality.


Choosing the Right Hardness Testing Instrument

Selecting the appropriate hardness tester depends on the standards you are following to determine hardness values. Various international standards, such as DIN ISO 7619, ASTM D 2240, DIN EN ISO 868, DIN ISO 48, and ASTM D 1415, offer specific guidelines for hardness testing of different materials. Our top-notch shore hardness testing instrument, the highly intelligent digi test II, provides a comprehensive and meticulous hardness testing experience. The digi test II shore hardness tester is a fully automated hardness testing instrument used to measure Shore, Micro, IRHD (international rubber hardness degree), and VLRH (very low rubber hardness) on a variety of elastomers and foam materials. Our digi test II provides a full range for all your testing solutions.

– Shore A, Shore D, Micro Shore A, IRHD M, or IRHD N Scales

Each material requires a specific hardness scale to measure its hardness accurately. Shore A, Shore D, Micro Shore A, IRHD M, and IRHD N are some common scales used for hardness testing. Understanding the hardness scale suitable for your material is crucial to obtaining precise results. Check out our full range of hardness testers, from hand-held digital durometers to fully automated hardness testing systems.


Advantages of Accurate and Reproducible Results

Having accurate, reliable, and reproducible hardness test results is of utmost importance for any industry. Here’s how it helps:

1- Quality Assurance: By employing our premium-grade hardness testers, the precision of hardness testing is guaranteed, thereby ensuring the material aligns with stipulated specifications and maintains unwavering quality across multiple production batches.
2- Product Performance: Hardness values correlate with material strength and performance. With reliable hardness results, you can predict how the material will behave in real-world applications.
3- Cost Savings: Identifying any defects or inconsistencies early in the production process can save costs by preventing material wastage and avoiding expensive recalls.
4- Customer Satisfaction: Delivering products with consistent quality and performance enhances customer satisfaction and builds trust in your brand.
