Manufacturer: NewSonic

The NewSonic SonoDur-R 'Rack' is a UCI hardness tester designed for complete automated, 100% checks of mass-produced parts. The 19" desktop device performs rapid process monitoring (at one-second intervals) of mix-up testing procedures. Conforms to ASTM A1038.

The SonoDur-R is mainly used to test serial parts following heat treatment, surface processing or measuring coating hardness on gravure cylinders with highly-selective low-load motorized probes.

The SonoDur-R is the world's only automated UCI measurement system that is fully system compatible thanks to its USB and fully-isolated, digital I/O interface. Good/bad sorting gates and other factors can be set up with setpoints to help facilitate your hardness inspection processes.

The SonoDur-R provides all of the features of the SonoDur2 mobile hardness testing device but can scale into a fully-automated process line.


All SonoDur manual and motorized probes are compatible with the SonoDur-R without restrictions. Simply connect each probe through a USB port.


  • Fully isolated, digital I/O interface for the direct controlling of actuators; potential-free signal contacts for full remote control via SP

  • Speed: Approx. 1 measurement per second

  • Measured value counter with statistical functions

  • Fast amortization through the durable SonoDur 2 manual measurement probes SONO-10H (HV1), SONO-50H (HV5) and SONO-100H (HV10)

  • USB interface for measured value transmission

  • Operates on 24VDC voltage or an external power supply

  • All SonoDur manual and motorized probes can be used

  • Large measured data memory 2GB (approx. 90,000 measurement series, each with 1,000 measurements)

  • Measured value changes in color depending on the applied set point


  • Hardness testing on serial parts following heat treatment

  • Hardness testing on parts following surface processing

  • Measuring coating hardness on gravure cylinders
