The Shimana Test Stand for Durometers was designed to provide the ASTM recommended force for use in hardness measurements. These durometer test stands works with all Shimana durometers (digital or dial models).

The mass is centered along the indenter axis, providing a consistent load each and every test. Using test stand in your hardness applications, the hardness value is not depending on operator force: the lever is used only to release the weight to produce the ASTM recommended force.


The shore durometers and test stands can also be purchased togheter as a kit to save 10% off the package. Part numbers and ordering information for these kits can be found on the durometers pages.

What's included:

  • ASTM Weight (the weight depends on durometer's type)
  • operating handle
  • adjusted glass stage: for leveling to the horizontal position and get vertical force test
  • die poise, clip beam of durometer
  • lift column.

The Shimana hardness test stand is the ideal tool for repetitive or lab-type testing for users who must test either very large specimens, or test in a number of different durometer scales.
