This paper describes the automatic control of disc type rheometer. This developed device will able to provide flexibility to operator for testing of rubber. The operator has to just enter the duration of test and parameters through man machine interface. All the operations will occur automatically without any intervention in a prescribed sequence stored in programmable logic controller (PLC). This developed apparatus is useful not only for testing purpose, but it can be used for research for other types of materials also. With this state of art apparatus one can control the quality of rubber for various applications such as tyre industry. Also this would help to increase the production of rubber as automatic control comes which reduces the test duration to few minutes only.
