Shore IRHD hardness tester MicroDako

MICRODAKO is a fully motorized hardness tester that determines the hardness of any plastic and rubber material, in accordance with standardized methods IRHD and Shore. Fast scale selection thanks to the multi-probe turret. Automatic contact and measurement with the test piece from any starting distance. Automatic loading with Closed Loop control with accuracy 0.05%. The only manual intervention by the operator is the load of the sample on the working base of the hardness tester.

Load forces are easily selected from the PC and are automatically applied trough load cells electronically controlled in Closed Loop. (Pat. AFFRI)
MICRODAKO is equipped with a touchscreen PC support and a powerful software to control the entire instrument: from the configuration of the test, to the complete management of statistics. MICRODAKO can be configured with a wide range of accessories according to customer requirements.

L.I.S.A LASER POINTING SYSTEM Laser pointing system (Pat. AFFRI). Allows for a precise test position pointing before the contact between the indenter and the sample.

CLICK START, GET RESULTS

FULLY AUTOMATIC HARDNESS TEST CYCLE:
Just click start and the hardness tester will perform the testing cycle in automatic succession without breaching a phase:

  1. Automatic approach and contact of the sample to the testing probe
  2. Clamping of the sample
  3. Execution of the measurement
  4. Release of the sample

The entire test cycle is complete and the result immediately appears on the monitor. Fully motorized and automatic, the test is not affected by operator
influences and can easily be used by operators of entry level. MICRODAKO is a multifunctional laboratory instrument, able to perform tests on various materials and of various shapes and sizes. The load forces are controlled for each probe with a high-calibrated dynamometric load cell which assure a perfect and linear load application at every test.

TEST ALL TYPES OF PLASTIC AND RUBBERS

MICRODAKO is equipped with 5 different hardness testing units mounted on a horizontally rotating turret. Each hardness unit is a stand-alone probe to test a specific hardness scale (Shore, IRHD,..). To change the testing method it will be enough to spin the turret and bring the desired probe in front of the operator. The position will be automatically recognized by the computer.

The testing pressure and the indentation move in the same axis (Z) with a test accuracy not achievable by common manual testers. The system avoids any movement of the sample and assures perfect stability of any test piece throughout the test cycle.

The test cycle is quick! The precision of this system allows quick tests with accurate measurements at every test. The turret control is so easy and fast that the change of the testing probes takes only a few seconds.

Long-life indenter! The probes have been realized by AFFRI and the indenters are in Tungsten Carbide to guarantee maximum efficiency over the time.

LOOKING FOR A SMART SOFTWARE?

This is a “SMART SOFTWARE” extremely easy to be used, studied to fulfil any user need and to be accessible to every operator

TEST METHOD SELECTION

Only one window for the selection of everything you need for the test. Select the hardness group, scale and dwell time

FULL HD MOINITOR 24″

Clean vision of testing parameters, the result with statistics and all software features. Choose between 4 graphs with live update of dots at every hardness test.

EASY RESULT MANAGEMENT

Visual control of all results, color highlighted based on tolerances. Modify, delete or save single or multiple tests. Create or save/import tests cycles sessions.

ONE-HAND FULL CONTROL

Control the whole instrument with the mouse. Z axis motorization control with fast or slow speed. Clear and green START button.

CUSTOMIZABLE TEST REPORT

The report template is created directly by the Affri team. Templates can be 100% customized according to any need: not only the company logo, but the layout can also be filled with any test information. Time by time, after the test cycle, choose what to export in the final report by flagging or unflagging simple options.

TABULAR AND TXT DATA EXPORT

Print the results directly from the Affri software or export data in txt, CSV, PDF, Word, Excel and tabular format to the spreadsheet program of your choice for further statistical analysis.

Test cycles or sample drawings can be loaded directly from a central system. This hardness tester gets all information fully automatically. After test run the data are added with results and immediately returned to the order management system (MES).
