Micro IRHD Laser Revolution
Micro-IRHD Hardness tester with laser centring device and rotating sample holder for the automatic serial measure of O-ring and small rubber parts


Standards the instrument complies with:   
ASTM D1414;   ASTM D1415;   FIAT 50408;   ISO 48-2;    

Description 
The instruments is supplied with laser centring device and motor-controlled sample holding disk for the displacement of the parts to be measured.
The sample holding disk moves each test piece under the laser centring tool and then places the optimal test point of the part under the micro-irhd testing unit.
The positioning and hardness measuring operations are performed automatically for all the parts placed on the sample holding disk across the laser reading line without intervention of the operator.


Applications of the instrument 
The instrument permits to perform the serial measure of micro-irhd hardness of O-rings and small parts eliminating the human influence in the sample positioning.
The instrument is useful for:
• Product approval or Quality Control tests which require the repeating of the tests on statistical basis
• Mold approval tests
• Process capability analysis
• Testing of small parts difficult to be centered manually
O-rings or small parts with a thickness between 1 and 20 mm can be tested.
The laser testing process can be stopped to perform tests with standard samples.


HardnessCheck Software 
The software is optimized for the automatic execution of tests and allows:
• Quick identification of products
• Automatic configuration of the instrument according to the product
• Automatic comparison with the tolerance limits set for the product
• Saving of Results, Curves and outcomes in the SQL database
• Statistic analysis
• Preparation of customized reports in language




Part Scan Function: Measure automatically parts with non-symmetrical shape 
The Part Scan Function allows you to choose the position in which the automatic hardness measurement must be carried out even for very complex parts.
The measurement position is associated with the product code and reused for subsequent measurements.


Calculated Results: IRHD Hardness 
The software allows you to prepare customized test procedures that include all the calculations required by the standards and product specifications. The dedicated page describes all the available calculations.

Accredia Calibration of the instrument 
The instrument can be supplied with an ACCREDIA calibration certificate issued by the Accredia laboratory of Gibitre instruments.
The calibration is carried out according to the Technical Procedure approved by Accredia and in compliance with the requirements of the ISO 48-2 standard.
The Calibration refers to:
• Dimensions of the Indentor and Annular foot
• Forces applied by the indentor and the annular foot
• Displacement of the indenter
• Duration of the test




Management of Test Results 
The results and test curves of all the tests carried out are saved in the Gibitre SQL database and are available through the Datagest program.
The instrument control programs allow to eliminate and repeat unsatisfactory tests.
When a test is deleted or repeated, the following are updated:
• the Charts
• Statistical analysis
• the Database


Industry 4.0 integration 
The instrument and the software have been specifically developed to optimize integration with other environments.
The database in SQL format and the Gibitre_Company_Connect program allows you synchronize your company management software with Gibitre database and to speed up the identification of the tests and to use bar-code readers or similar devices.
The automatic logging service permits to send alarm information to the cloud-service platform of Gibitre Instruments in order to optimize the reaction times of the Service Support.


Test report 
Can be printed or saved to pdf in one of the available languages. The format of the Test Report can be customized by the user.



Tolerance Limits 
The Datagest program allows you to define specific tolerance limits for each Product, Customer, Test Procedure and Aging Treatment.
For each result to be calculated, tolerance limits and alarm limits can be defined.
The comparison between the results and the tolerance limits is carried out automatically at the end of each test: the test results are colored (Green, Yellow or Red) based on the outcome of the comparison with the limits.
The outcome of the check is saved in the database together with the results.


Statistics of ongoing tests 
The programs automatically process the statistical analysis of the tests in progress by calculating:
• Maximum
• Minimum
• Average
• Median
• Standard deviation
• Cp
• Cpk
In addition, the Gaussian curve relative to the results is shown together with the tolerance limits to immediately highlight the progress of the tests in progress.
The Datagest program allows you to process more detailed statistics related to the saved results and to represent X and R Charts by grouping data by order, batch, batch, date, etc.


Technology of Micro-IRHD device  
The micro-irhd testing units produced by Gibitre measure the force applied to the sample using a load cell.
This technology, widely used for the hardness testers for metals, permits to eliminate the effect of friction in the application of the force and improves the test repeatability.




Characteristics of the laser centering device and of the sample-positioning system 
The laser sensor used is class 2 type and has 0.002 mm reading resolution.
The sample positioning disk permits to set the position of the test piece with 0.005 mm accuracy.
The combination of accurate measuring and sample positioning devices ensures a very high repeatability of the results obtained even when very small parts are tested.


Safety devices 
The instrument includes safety devices to eliminate potential risks during the automatic working.
• Test stops in case of incorrect sample centring
• Test stops in case of overload of the indentor
• Test stops in case of missing laser reading or sample positioning reading.

The instrument is supplied with CE Labelling


Language Selection 
All the programs produced by Gibitre are multi-language and allow the operator to select the language of use.
The test report can be produced in the desired language regardless of the language of use of the program.
The languages available at the moment are: Italian, English, German, French, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Turkish, Polish, Czech




Hardware requirements 
• Programs can be installed on standard PCs with WINDOWS 7, 8 or 10 OPERATING SYSTEMS.
• The CONNECTION between the instruments and the PC is made using the USB CABLE supplied with the instrument.
• The programs are COMPATIBLE WITH ANTIVIRUS, and other programs installed on the PC.
