Are the Corrugated Boxes Suitable for carrying Glassware?
Glassware is the most beautiful and elegant part of the kitchen. Starting from tumblers to
a champagne glasses, glassware is utilized for serving water, cocktails, beer, liquor, wine, coffee, tea and other beverages. Manufacturers also put extra efforts on making glassware as strong and good-looking as possible. They also take the maximum amount of precautions for keeping them safe from any cracks or breakage, as a tiny crack on the glass material can make the entire structure weak and eventually the crack will grow to a bigger damage. This post focuses on the use of Box Compression tester for ensuring load resistant corrugated box production.
Along with the manufactures, it is also the sole responsibility of the packaging department to ensure that the products are delivered intact and safely to the customer’s doorstep. It has been observed, that due to a poor quality packing material, glass products suffer cracks and may also experience spontaneous breakage. A small step towards careful packaging material selection, standardised quality testing and use of high-quality machinery can save you from experiencing product rejections. Attributed to their strength and high tolerance, corrugated boxes are the ideal choice for packing glassware.
Therefore, the corrugated box manufacturing company, the supplier who is delivering the packaging material, the company who is responsible for the packaging must administer effective testing system using Box Compression Tester.
Presto Stantest brings you the most advanced model of corrugated box testing machine. The Box Compression tester is constructed as per various testing standards including ASTM D642, ASTM D4169, TAPPI T804, ISO 12048, and JIS Z0212. It is used for testing the level of compression load a corrugated box can withstand without buckling. The machine is equipped with microprocessor-based digital controls which ensure accurate results with even repeatable testing.
The testing specimen of variable sizes is kept on the platform and the compression plate is pushed down on the sample to deliver uniform pressure. The compression plate is controlled using a motorized arrangement. This is the computerised version of the tester which allows the operator to connect the machine with your desktop or laptop using a software program. The test results can be displayed on the digital as well as on the computer screen. The software program will be a part of the offer and can be installed in your computer easily. The software can provide a graphical representation of the test and helps in generating a various form of testing data.
