The box compression tester works by placing the corrugated box in the testing machine and applying a controlled compressive force. The force is gradually increased until the box reaches its maximum load-bearing capacity or deforms. During the test, the tester Salt Spray Chamber accurately measures the compressive force exerted on the box.
The box compression tester offered by Pacorr is designed with advanced features for precise and reliable testing. The digital model provides a bright LED display for live test result analysis and accurate output. It applies a uniform compression force during the test to ensure precise calculations. The tester also includes features such as TARE and peak hold, which allow for easy zeroing and capturing the maximum compression force.
Additionally, the box compression tester is equipped with over-travel protection to prevent damage to the machine and ensure safe testing operations. The base plate of the tester is designed to provide stability and minimize external movements during the test. The controls are designed to be user-friendly, with feather touch controls for an advanced testing experience.
The box compression tester adheres to various international standards such as ASTM D642, ASTM D4169, TAPPI T804, ISO 12048, and JIS Z0212, ensuring that the testing process is in line with industry standards.
By using a box compression tester, manufacturers can accurately measure the compressive force that corrugated boxes can bear. This information helps them determine the strength and quality of their packaging boxes and ensure they meet the required standards for storage, transportation, and stacking conditions.
