RB 3000

Automated rubber resilience tester for accurate determination of resilience properties of rubber compounds



ISO 4662 | DIN 53512 | ASTM D 1054 | ASTM D 7121 | DIN 13014 (Foam)

Essential to R&D or quality control, the RB 3000 rubber resilience tester determines the resilience and shock absorption properties of rubber and elastomeric materials. Utilizing a multi-language 7” touch screen display, the RB 3000 effortlessly guides users through each testing sequence. The pendulum mechanism features a 15mm diameter hammer fin connected to an air bearing system. The bearing system is then connected to a high resolution non-contact encoder guaranteeing the highest precision in pendulum angle measurement.
