Testing Solutions Since 1954



The Birth of HP – Bareiss has built the evergreen of hardness testers in a nearly unchanged design since 1954. The HP Analog Shore Durometer Hardness Tester is still as modern and precise as it was 50 years ago. Having sold more than 100,000 units all around the world, the shore durometer hardness tester is the most frequently used manual hardness tester. The entire chassis of HP is made of aluminum which provides light weight and durability. Every unit of HP analog  durometer hardness tester is carefully assembled and calibrated by Bareiss technicians. To avoid the indenter from traveling with friction, we adopted a technique of combining different size bearing balls to create smooth traveling for the indenter. Bareiss HP Series is available in different Shore and non-Shore scales and with the possibility of a customized presser foot to suit different requirements.

    DAkkS/DKD Calibration Certificate - Bareiss North AmericaDAkkS/DKD Calibration Certificate
    When a measuring instrument is being calibrated, the given deviation is determined by various measurements versus standard references. A calibration certificate is then issued indicating the measuring results and the corresponding measurement uncertainties and the instrument is marked as calibrated. All documents together with the calibration certificate provide traceability of national standards.
