Zwick 3105 combi test IRHD/Shore hardness tester

The Zwick 3105 combi test is a microcomputer-controlled hardness tester with very high measurement accuracy in multiple IRHD (plus IRHD ss supersoft) and Shore measurement ranges.

Overview of key advantages

This hardness tester delivers fast, fully automatic measurement in all Shore and IRHD ranges. Operator influence is eliminated, while digital measuring systems enable high measurement accuracy.

The tester can perform hardness tests on moldings and sheet materials, for example, using an automatic approach system.

This ensures reliable measurements on moldings with concave or convex surfaces.

VLRH hardness testing is also possible. With this method the hardness of very soft elastomers, particularly silicon and foam rubber, can be determined with material thicknesses from 2 mm.

Range of application

Overview

  • The Zwick 3105 combi test is a microcomputer-controlled hardness tester for the following measurement ranges:
  • IRHD-M (micro)
  • IRHD-N (normal)
  • IRHD-H
  • IRHD-L (soft)
  • VLRH (IRHD supersoft)
  • Shore A/B/0
  • Shore D/C/D0
  • Shore 00/000
  • Micro Shore

It satisfies the following standards: ISO 7619-1, ISO 868, ISO 48, ASTM D2240, ASTM D1415, NFT 51 123, NF 46 003.
