H&D 3000

Automated instrument for combined hardness and density testing of cured rubber



ISO 2781 | ASTM D1817

The H&D 3000 simplifies high volume testing for hardness and density by combining each instrument into a single, automated unit. Test sequences are easily programmable and modifiable. Due to the unique rotary tray design, the instrument can be continuously loaded and operated. Once the data is collected it is automatically processed through MonDevice for easy output to external host-systems.
