The haptic hardness, the sensory perception people have when touching or feeling an object, is simulated by the Softness Tester as a reproducible measuring procedure under laboratory conditions. During a haptic hardness measurement, the depth to which a tappet penetrates the test specimen is measured.

During the test, the specimen is pressed into the part under defined conditions. This approach makes it possible to consider "perceived properties“ of materials in their selection and assessment.

The measuring parameters can be adapted to the different materials and individual measurement processes can be generated. The electronic control circuitry ensures that measuring data is acquired completely and is responsible for the motion control for the actual measuring process.

Requirements on the sample material:

  • Sample size: approx. 30mm
  • Thickness: max. 30mm

Specimen analysis:

  • Displacement-force diagram
  • Relaxation
  • Penetration depth
