Overcome the challenge of compressed paper cores with a core compression tester

 Paper cores are an essential part of many paper-based products that provides strength and stability to the packaging products. It is important to determine the core strength of these paper cores to prevent them from collapsing under compression. Thus, you can easily do this by using one of the accurate lab testing instruments known as a core compression tester. This is one of the highly accurate lab testing equipment designed by the experts at Presto that provides the collapsing load under which the product will be tested accurately. This core compression testing equipment has been designed in accordance with industrial standards that includes Test Standard ISO 11093. In this blog post, we will discuss brief information about core compression testers and their role in the packaging industry. We will also discuss why cores should be tested against compression. So, let us get started!


Why paper cores should be tested against compression?

Paper cores are often used in a variety of industries, from food packaging to textiles. They are made from paperboard that has been cut into a cylindrical shape and then glued together.
Paper cores have a number of benefits over other types of packaging materials, including their light weight, recyclability, and low cost. However, one potential drawback of paper cores is that they can be susceptible to compression. Compression testing is a way of assessing the strength of paper cores under pressure. By subjecting paper cores to increasing levels of compression, manufacturers can determine whether they are likely to withstand the forces they will encounter during use. Presto core compression testing equipment is one of the widely used lab testing equipment that is used to test the compression strength of boxes and help to ensure that they should be performed as intended in their end-use applications.
Now, let us discuss brief information about the Presto core compression testing instrument.

All about Presto core compression tester

Paper cores are used in a variety of industries for a variety of purposes. In order to ensure that they will perform as expected, it is important to test them against compression. There are a few different ways to test paper cores against compression. One common method is to use a compression testing machine. Presto offers a high-quality core compression tester that has been used in the paper & packaging industry to test the compression strength of cores and determine their crush resistance.
The collapsing load will be determined by placing the cylindrical paper core of a specified length in between compression plates (either radial or flat type), applying a uniform magnitude of compressive load on the test specimen, maximum sustained load value is then recorded. PRESTO core compression Tester is manufactured under Test Standard ISO 11093.
Now, let us discuss the features and technical specifications of this quality lab testing equipment.
