But first, let’s discuss some of the common challenges faced by paper and packaging manufacturers due to the poor bursting strength of cardboard.

Common challenges faced by manufacturers due to poor bursting strength of cardboard

The use of cardboard packaging has become a ubiquitous part of modern-day commerce, with its lightweight, durable, and cost-effective properties making it a popular choice for shipping products. However, cardboard packaging can sometimes fail, resulting in bursts or damaged packages. This can lead to several challenges that businesses must navigate, including product damage, shipping delays, increased costs, environmental impact, and safety hazards.  
Below we have listed some of the common challenges faced by paper and packaging manufacturers due to poor quality of cardboard.
  1. Product damage: When cardboard packaging bursts or fails, the items inside can be damaged or broken. This can result in customer dissatisfaction and increased costs due to returns and replacements.
  2. Shipping delays: Burst cardboard packaging can cause delays in shipping and delivery, as the damaged packages may need to be replaced or repackaged before they can be shipped.
  3. Increased shipping costs: If a large number of packages burst during shipping, the shipping company may charge additional fees for damaged packages or require additional packaging materials to prevent future damage.
  4. Environmental impact: Burst cardboard packaging can result in waste and environmental impact, as damaged packaging may need to be discarded or recycled.
  5. Safety hazards: If the burst cardboard packaging contains hazardous materials, it can pose a safety hazard to workers and the environment.

To address these challenges, it is important to ensure that packaging materials are of high quality and suitable for the products being shipped and that they are properly tested and inspected before use. It is also important to use appropriate packaging techniques, to prevent damage during shipping.

With the use of Presto digital bursting strength tester, manufacturers can easily test the bursting strength of the materials and ensure that quality materials will be delivered to the customers. Now, let us discuss a brief about the Presto burst testing machine digital model.
