The IRHD Micro Hardness Tester with a laser centering system represents the most advanced solution for automatically measuring the hardness of small pieces.
To conduct the test, you only need to:
The specimen holder disc initiates rotation, while the laser centering device precisely locates the testing point. The hardness tester then performs the test at the designated positions.
This positioning and measurement process is repeated automatically for all the pieces placed on the measurement line, eliminating the need for operator intervention.
The measurement results are compared with the preset tolerance limits and automatically saved in the database.
The instrument enables the serial measurement of Micro-IRHD hardness in O-rings and small parts, eliminating human influence in the sample positioning.
The instrument is particularly beneficial for the following applications:
O-rings or small parts with a thickness ranging between 1 and 20 mm can be tested.
Additionally, the laser testing process can be paused to conduct tests with standard samples.
The global manufacturer that utilizes a Ruby ball indenter for Micro-IRHD durometers, guaranteeing:
The instrument can be provided with an Accredited calibration certificate issued by the calibration laboratory.
The software enables scanning of your pieces and defining and storing the appropriate measuring point for each product.
The software is designed to optimize the automatic execution of tests and offers the following features:
The Part Scan Function enables the selection of specific positions for automatic hardness measurement, even for intricate and non-symmetrical parts.
Each measurement position is linked to the respective product code and is automatically saved for future measurements. This feature ensures consistent and accurate testing for subsequent batches.
The software provides the flexibility to create personalized test procedures that encompass all the calculations mandated by the relevant standards and product specifications. The dedicated page outlines and explains all the available calculations in detail.
The test report can be printed or saved as a PDF file in any of the available languages. Users have the option to customize the format of the test report according to their preferences.
With the Datagest program, you can establish precise tolerance limits for individual Products, Customers, Test Procedures, and Aging Treatments.
For each calculated result, you have the flexibility to define both tolerance limits and alarm limits.
At the conclusion of each test, an automatic comparison is made between the results and the specified tolerance limits. The test results are color-coded (Green, Yellow, or Red) based on the outcome of this comparison.
The check's outcome is then stored in the database along with the test results.
The programs handle the statistical analysis of ongoing tests automatically, calculating essential parameters such as:
Moreover, the Gaussian curve representing the results is displayed alongside the tolerance limits, providing immediate visibility into the progress of ongoing tests.
The Datagest program offers more comprehensive statistical analysis options for saved results, allowing the generation of X and R Charts based on data grouping by order, batch, date, etc.
All test results and test curves are securely stored in the SQL database, providing a centralized and organized repository of data. These results are easily accessible through the Datagest program.
Datagest serves as the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) and is an integral part of all instrument-control programs. It functions as a comprehensive data collector for all test results produced by connected instruments. Additionally, Datagest facilitates the management of common archives, such as Product Lists, Customer Lists, Tolerance Limits, Order Lists, and more, streamlining data organization and retrieval for efficient laboratory operations.
The instrument and software have been meticulously designed to seamlessly integrate with other environments, aligning with the principles of Industry 4.0. The database is structured in SQL format, allowing smooth communication and data exchange with other systems.
The Company_Connect program facilitates synchronization between your company's management software and the database. This integration accelerates the test identification process and enables the use of bar-code readers or similar devices for enhanced automation and efficiency.
By leveraging these integration capabilities, the instrument and software become an integral part of your company's interconnected smart manufacturing ecosystem, contributing to streamlined workflows and data-driven decision-making.
The instrument can be provided with an Accredited calibration certificate issued by the Accredited laboratory of instruments.
The calibration process adheres strictly to the Technical Procedure approved by Accredited and is in full compliance with the requirements of the ISO 48-2 standard.
The Calibration encompasses the following aspects:
Micro-IRHD testing units utilize a load cell to measure the force applied to the sample. This technology, commonly employed in hardness testers for metals, offers significant advantages. By using a load cell, the device effectively eliminates the influence of friction during force application, resulting in enhanced test repeatability. This innovative approach ensures accurate and consistent measurements, making it a reliable choice for Micro-IRHD hardness testing.
