Are you a corrugated box manufacturer and continuously facing the challenge of compressed boxes? Are you worried about your next shipment being rejected due to the poor quality of the corrugated delivery box? If you are facing these challenges then it is important to test the quality of the box by testing its compression strength.

Thus, we at Presto being Asia’s top manufacturer of laboratory testing instrument has designed a high-quality box compression tester that is used to test the compression strength of materials like corrugated boxes, cartons, etc.
This quality box compression testing equipment will apply a compressive force on the materials until the sample will fail. This will help to evaluate the sturdiness and durability of the material.
 In this blog, we are going to provide you with brief information about the Presto box compression tester and how this quality laboratory testing equipment is used to test the compression strength of boxes. We will also discuss its easy-to-use testing procedure that helps in assessing the compressive strength of boxes.  But first, let us get started with the importance of testing the compressive strength of cartons. 

Importance of testing compressive strength of cartons

When the cartons are shipped for product delivery, then one of the major concerns for the product manufacturers is that these boxes will not get compressed when stacked over each other. A box with poor compressive strength will not only damage the contents inside it but also lead to high product rejection rates.
If you want to save yourself from high product rejection rates, then it is important to test the stackability of cartons with the help of a high-quality carton compression tester.
There are many benefits of using a box compression tester in the corrugated box industry.
If you make the use of Presto digital box compression tester, then you will get an immense number of benefits that are listed below.
  1. Accurate Testing Results: This digital box compression tester designed by the experts at Presto will provide accurate and reliable results, ensuring that the packaging material meets industry standards and regulatory requirements.
  2. Easy to Operate: This testing machine is easy to operate and requires minimal training. The testing process is automated, reducing the chances of errors and improving testing efficiency.
  3. Reduces the hitch of manual testing: The Presto Box Compression Tester saves time associated with carton compression testing as it reduces the need for manual testing, which can be time-consuming and expensive.
  4. Improves Product Quality: This testing machine helps manufacturers to optimize their packaging design and improve the product's quality. It ensures that the packaging material can withstand the weight of the products inside it and any external forces during transportation or storage.
  5. Enhances Customer Satisfaction: The use of the Presto Box Compression Tester ensures that the packaging material is strong and durable, which enhances customer satisfaction. It reduces the chances of damaged products during transportation or storage, which can lead to customer complaints and returns.

Overall, the Presto Box Compression Tester is a valuable asset for the packaging industry, helping manufacturers to ensure that their packaging meets quality and regulatory standards and improves customer satisfaction. This paper & packaging testing instrument will easily assess the durability of boxes.

Now, let us discuss the working procedure of the Presto box compression tester.

Working procedure of Presto box compression tester

The working procedure of the Presto Box Compression Tester can be divided into the following steps:
  1. Before conducting a box compression test, prepare the testing specimen and place it on the machine.
  2. Ensure the specimen is centered on the plate to obtain accurate test results, using the provided marking points.
  3. Bring the compression plate near the specimen by turning the rotary switch downward. The fast runner option can be used to increase the plate's speed to 50 mm/min.
  4. Apply a preload of 1 or 2 kgf on the specimen to eliminate any air gap between the compression plate and the specimen.
  5. Once all above-mentioned steps will get completed, then you can easily commence the box compression test on the cartons.
In this way, you can easily conduct compression tests using Presto (BCT) box compression tester.
