Our proven C-frame design provides rigidity for unrivalled stability and repeatability of results.
A selection of accessories complement our range.
 
Wallace has recently launched the upgraded version of the hardness tester range with greater accuracy, upgraded software and greater connectivity.
 

Traceability
“Software allows for ease of data capture and analyses.”.
Operation and daily verification of the instruments require minimal training.

Repeatability
“Doing the same thing over and over expecting the same result”.
We have completed a Gage R&R study which gives system repeatability and reliability of 99%.

Productivity
....and Simplicity go hand in hand.
“Our Hardness Testers are simple to operate with one-time set up and simple one finger operation”.
Operation and daily verification of the instruments require minimal training.
Accessories like the O-ring table and ability to use barcode scanners improve productivity.

Flexibility
We realise that different customers have different needs. Our instruments are designed to favour stability, reliability and repeatability which some customers may perceive as inflexibility.
Our research shows that customers also favour these attributes but often need to do more.
A standard set of easily interchangeable sample tables provide for specific applications

Handheld Durometer Stand

The Wallace Handheld Durometer Stand enables accurate and repeatable results in accordance with the relevant standards.  The easy height and weight adjustment make it simple to measure non-standard products.

The stand easily adapts to support a range of durometers, both analogue and digital (including Shore A, Shore D and Shore OO).

Wallace Handheld Durometers

Handheld Durometers

Wallace offers both analogue and digital Handheld Durometers (including Shore A, Shore D and Shore OO). These durometers enable accurate and repeatable results in accordance with the relevant standards.  All models are designed for handheld applications or in conjunction with the Wallace Handheld Durometer Stand (WAH18).

 

IRHD Dead Load Hardness Tester - H14

IRHD Macro Hardness Tester - H14

The H14 Macro IRHD Hardness Tester is a digital, fully automatic bench mounted instrument whichallows accurate and repeatable measurements of larger samples.

IRHD Macro Test Blocks - H10

Each set consists of six rectangular blocks of rubber approx. 50 x 60 x 8 mm. Each block is identified by a lettered tab relating to the hardness values specified in the lid of the box. Only the identified surface should be used for testing.

Micro Hardness Tester - H12

IRHD Micro Hardness Tester - H12

This advanced Windows based software package controls the instrument and allows data to be exported to most commercial spreadsheets, word processors and databases. Saving hours of tedious data entry.

IRHD Micro Test Blocks - H11

The H11 Test Blocks conform to the Micro Test Specification of the following standards: BS 903 Pt A26, ISO 48, ASTM D1415 and JIS 6253. Each set consists of four rectangular blocks of rubber approx. 25 x 25 x 2 mm.

Wallace Hardness Tester Sample Tables

Sample Tables for Wallace Hardness Testers

Wallace have developed a Quick Change Range of sample tables for use on the H 12 Micro, H 14 Dead Load & H 17 Shore Scale Hardness Testers.

Shore A Scale Hardness Tester - H17A

The H17A Shore A Scale Hardness Tester is available in four different models. The design, the result of considerable consultation with customers, is robust and constructed from aluminium castings which with anti-vibration feet results in exceptional stability.

Shore A Test Blocks - H10A

Each set consists of six rectangular blocks of rubber approx. 50 x 60 x 8 mm. Each block is identified by a lettered tab relating to the hardness values specified in the lid of the box. Only the identified surface should be used for testing.

Shore D Scale Hardness Tester - H17D

Shore D Scale Hardness Tester - H17D

The H17D is a bench mounted instrument which measures the hardness of rubber and plastics and displays the result in Shore D scale values. After pressing the start button, the instrument operates automatically and the test result is displayed at the end of the test.

Shore M Scale Hardness Tester - H17M

Shore M Scale Hardness Tester - H17M

The H17M Shore 'A' Scale Hardness Tester is available in three different models. The design, the result of considerable consultation with customers, is robust and constructed from aluminium castings which with anti-vibration feet results in exceptional stability.
