Mecmesin's shotcrete penetrometer is a complete, portable kit for performing needle penetration tests to estimate the compresive strength of young, sprayed concrete in-situ.

This video shows a Mecmesin automated test system carrying out repetitive penetration tests on plasterboard in order to accurately assess the performance and durability of the gypsum plasterboard products. The use of an automated test system has many benefits including: improved test reproducibility providing consistent and repeatable results; elimination of operator error and increased test throughput reducing costs in time and labour.
