Box compression tester is the most widely used tools in the packaging industry. It is used for testing the stacking load bearing capacity of the boxes. By determining the compressive strength of the box, the manufacturers can estimate the potential to sustain the warehousing and transportation conditions. Apart from cartons, it can be used to test the beehive crates, paper tanks, paper cases etc. Compressive strength further decides the weight range of the packing. The machine comes with a motorised arrange and can be used to perform the creep test or to adjudge the compressive strength of the box.
It is a very simple to operate machine and comes with computer connectivity. This means that this machine can be connected and operated with computer, dual communication. The machine comes with a rigid dual column structure and it has one movable plate. The specimen to be tested is kept in the platform and the movable plate applied a compressive force on the box. The load cell is used to apply the load. Sensors will determine the pressure that is exerted on the box. The electrical signals are processed and displayed on the bright LED scree in human readable form. The data can be logged and transferred in to the computer in graphical format.
