paper grammage testing

Paper grammage is a crucial factor in determining the quality of the paper. Testing the grammage ensures that the paper meets the required standards and specifications and that it will perform as expected. Thus, testing the grammage of the materials will help the manufacturers in ensuring that quality materials will be delivered to the customers. We at Presto have designed a high-quality lab testing instrument known as a grammage checking kit that will test the grammage of materials like paper, paperboards, etc., and ensures that users will get accurate test results for the GSM value of different materials.

Once you keep a check on the strength of the packaging material then there will be no chance of getting damage to the product. Thus, to ensure this factor, you must take the GSM test. The GSM or weight per unit area will be calculated by precisely cutting the testing specimen. In this blog, we will discuss brief information about the Presto grammage checking kit and how this quality testing instrument will be helpful in assessing the grammage of the materials.

Importance of measuring GSM of product

Measuring GSM is an important part of quality control in many industries, particularly for textiles and paper products. It ensures that the product meets the required thickness and weight specifications, which in turn can affect its strength, durability, and overall quality.

Besides this, testing the grammage of materials with a grammage tester will help the manufacturers in ensuring that quality materials will be delivered to the customers.

Measuring GSM can help ensure that the final product meets customer expectations. If a product is too thin or too thick, it may not perform as expected and may result in customer complaints.

Presto grammage tester is equipped with a digital weighing balance and GSM round cutter. This will make it easy for paper and packaging manufacturers to perform grammage test procedures on the materials.

Now, let us discuss a brief about the Presto grammage checking kit.
