How to Choose the Right Box Compression Testing Machine

In the packaging industry, corrugated boxes are widely used to pack and deliver several items. If you deal with corrugated packaging and boxes then you need to test your products accurately to ensure zero rejections. Thus, with the help of the Presto compression testing machine, it will be easy for you to test the quality of materials used in packaging. The main purpose of this lab testing equipment is to ensure that your corrugated box will be tested efficiently and stay away from all the errors.

This box compression test is very useful in determining the maximum load range a box can tolerate till it deformed. By conducting the box compression test you can easily test the compression strength of boxes or cartons till they deformed.

Here in this article, we are going to provide you with information about box compression tester and what factors you need to take care of to choose the right testing instrument. So, let us get started.

Test the compression strength of corrugated boxes with a box compression tester

The rejections by the customers will not only influence your brand image but also lead to a huge loss to your business. Thus, with the help of the Presto box compression tester mini, you will easily be able to test the box compression strength and determine whether your material will be able to stand with high compression forces.

This box tester compression tester will make use of compressive forces to determine the material strength. You can easily perform the compression tests by placing the specimen between compression plates and conducting the test. Whenever you are going to conduct the test with the help of this compression testing machine, then you need to prepare the specimen first. After that, you can easily evaluate the compression strength of a cardboard box or fiberboard.

This amazing lab testing equipment plays a vital role in testing the exactness of products with better accuracy. The computerized cum digital model of this lab testing equipment has been provided with a digital readout that helps in accurate reading of the test results. It can also store the peak value of the previous tests that have been performed on the instrument.
