It may look clean and unassuming, but there’s actually a lot going on inside the CubeOne, a rubber tensile and tear testing robot built for measuring stress and strain. The top window and tray light indicator give users confidence that tests are going smoothly while internal cameras record every move. The software-hardware combo is friendly to use for new and veteran operators alike. Using renewable and durable materials, it’s built to withstand years of service, scale with future product lines and seamlessly fit into a lab or office setting – all while meeting strict certification standards.
