The Rycolab box compression tester is designed for testing the compressive strength of corrugated boxes/cartons according to international standards to evaluate the ability to withstand specific loads. For finished packages, the compression test can be used to measure compressive resistance, deformation and stacking capability. Various load cells & dimensions available.
The Box compression tester conforms to ISTA 6 – Amazon.com
The corrugated box or packaging to be tested must be placed centered in the lower plate of the compression tester. When the test begins, the upper plate will displace downward and a load will begin to be applied to the specimen. This force is captured by means of the three load cells located under the lower plate. When the system detects the sample breaking, the upper plate returns to the initial position at the maximum speed.
- Adjustable limit switch
- Testing speed up to 400 mm/min
- Three force sensors
- Automatic stop after break detection or expiration of the preset pressure time
- Automatic plate return after test
