Measure The Strength Of Edges To Enhance The Quality

Measure The Strength Of Edges To Enhance The Quality

In the paper and packaging industries, it is the corners and edges of the boxes that are mostly responsible for bearing the loads. The strength of these edges and corners is important as it is the only thing that specifies the safety of the content. Therefore, performing an Edge Crush Test helps to determine the strength and resistance of the box.

ECT or Edge Crush Tester is the reliable Lab Testing Equipment that helps to examine the crushing strength of the edges of corrugated boxes, cardboards, etc., when placed under heavy. 

If you are searching for user-friendly, economic and certified Lab Testing Equipment for your manufacturing unit, Presto can bring one stop solution for you. The leading manufacturer of testing instruments offers high quality Edge Crush Tester that also performs Ring Crush Test. 

Purpose of Edge Crush Test

The Edge Crush Resistance is an important quality control standard in corrugated cardboard factories. Therefore, TAPPI (Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry or The edge crush test (ECT) offers standards and technical information that are necessary in paper and packaging industries. It helps measure, evaluating and describing the strength of paper and pulp products. 

Edge Crush Test with Presto Stantest
