Gelatin Capsule Hardness Tester

The Gelatin Capsule Hardness Tester is a microcomputer-controlled hardness tester. Designed for determination of the hardness and resistance on flexible materials such as gelatin, gelatin capsules, play dough, etc. Automatically identification of the measuring range 0 - 2 N or 0 - 20 N and measuring time, data output, connecting cable.

The unique design and digital measuring systems ensure that a very high measuring precision is obtained. An automatic measurement for hardness test on gelatin capsules is required to obtain optimum accuracy and repeatability. During the measurement cycle, the test anvil attaches the surface of the specimen before the spring power is applied. Therefore, the most reliable measurement on parts with a convex or concave surface is guaranteed.

The modular construction of the Gelatin Capsule Hardness Tester

With the lastly developed plug-in system, the measuring devices are plugged into the pick-up bracket. Hereby of the measuring system and the adjustment of measuring distance is recognized automatically.
