Damage to the corrugated boxes at the time of transportation is a common problem faced by the packaging industries. To solve this problem, Presto offers the high quality of compression load testing machine to determine the strength of a box based on size, dimension, storage techniques, and material properties. For the better safety of products inside the carton or corrugated box, quality and compressive strength are essential factors. Most of the industries prefer only corrugated boxes for packaging due to its reliable and safety features. The plastic packaging is less preferred as compared to corrugated boxes. Presto manufactures the instrument to fulfill the needs of the paper and packaging industries following all the international mechanical standards.
Compression load testing machine measures the compression strength, shape and stacking capability of cartons, beehive crates, paper tanks, paper cases, etc. During transportation of foods or other products, corrugated boxes or cartons are placed one above other causing compression to the boxes. Due to compression, the box could deform and could harm or contaminate the product stored. Therefore, it is necessary to check the compression strength of a box before manufacturing.
In the testing procedure, a sample of the corrugated box is placed between two parallel plates, and maximum pressure is applied until the sample deformed completely. A standard time period must be set in the digital panel provided so that maximum compression strength to compress the test specimen can be determined. The testing procedure is based on the load and bend analysis procedure for easy comparison of quality of cartons, fiber boards, and closures with the standard specimen.
Checking the quality and compressive strength of the boxes with prior testing procedures prevent industries from a significant loss. The low quality of boxes could cause harm to the products that are stored in the boxes, and the end user can demand to return or replace the product. Ultimately the cost of repair or replacement is on the company. A prior quality check saves time and maintains a good reputation in the business.
