As anyone who has ever opened a package that arrived damaged can attest, the quality of packaging products is important. Not only does it need to be strong enough to protect your items during shipping, but it also needs to be easy for customers to open without damaging the contents. Bursting strength is one of the key factors to consider when choosing packaging materials. This measure how much pressure the material can withstand before it ruptures. You can easily test the bursting strength of materials with the help of the Testronix bursting strength tester digital model. 

Obviously, you want your packaging to be able to withstand the rigors of shipping without bursting open and spilling the contents. However, you also need to take into account the fact that customers will often use sharp objects like knives or scissors to open packages. As a result, it is important to strike a balance between strength and puncture resistance. By testing the bursting strength of your packaging materials, you can be sure that your products will arrive safely at their destination. Here in this blog, we are going to provide you the information about how you can easily calibrate the bursting strength tester, digital model. But let us focus on how Testronix bursting strength tester is beneficial for your packaging industry.

What is a bursting strength tester and how it is useful in the packaging industry?

When it comes to packaging, one of the most important considerations is strength. After all, if the packaging can't stand up to the rigors of shipping and handling, it's not going to do a very good job of protecting its contents. That's why it's important to test the bursting strength of any packaging material before using it. Corrugated boxes are a popular choice for many applications, but they need to be able to withstand a certain amount of pressure before they're considered safe for use. By testing the bursting strength of corrugated boxes, you can be sure that your product will arrive at its destination accurately. 

Testronix is a leading bursting strength testing instrument manufacturer with a high-quality bursting strength tester. Our lab tester instrument will let you quickly and accurately test the bursting strength of corrugated boxes, paperboard, and other materials. The tester is easy to set up and use, and it provides reliable results that can be used to compare different materials or to optimize packaging design. 

Testronix is committed to providing the best possible experience for our customers, and we offer a variety of services to help you get the most out of your bursting strength tester.

Whenever you are going to conduct a bursting strength test using Testronix bursting strength tester, then it is important for you to place the specimen accurately. Placing the specimen in the proper manner will help you to get accurate testing results. 

The digital model of the bursting strength tester has been made in accordance with industrial standards like ASTM D 3786-01, ASTM D 3786 – 80A, and ISO 1060 PART-1 1987. This will help you to assure that you will get accurate testing results. You can easily read about how you can easily measure the bursting strength of materials with the help of the Testronix bursting strength tester. 

Now, let us focus on the steps to calibrate Testronix bursting strength testing machine digital model.

Steps to easily calibrate Testronix bursting strength tester digital model

To ensure that testing instruments are accurate and up to date, calibration is a critical step that should be performed on a regular basis. By definition, calibration is the process of adjusting an instrument so that its readings are correct within a specified tolerance. 

In other words, it is the act of fine-tuning an instrument to get the most accurate measurements possible. Below we have listed the steps to calibrate Testronix bursting strength tester accurately.

  • Short the PROG LOCK location inside the machine in the rear panel to make changes in the configuration.
  • Open the front panel and separate it from the unit.
  • Open the brass plug and connect the master gauge to it.
  • Place a metal plate of minimum dimensions of 100 X 100 mm on the lower clamp. (The metal plate should have a thickness of 3 mm if MS is used. More thickness can be used in the case of Aluminum).
  • Press The PEAK/NORMAL button for at least 3 sec. to select normal mode. This will be indicated on the load indicator.
  • Press push for burst button to maintain a pressure of approximately 20-25 kg/cm2 on the master gauge.
  • Switch off the Mains button to hold the reading in the master gauge.
  • If the readings on the master gauge and the load indicator do not match as shown in the figure, this indicates that the machine is not calibrated properly.
  • If the value in the master is not matching the load indicator display then Press Limit Button. This will show LCAL on the load indicator on the left side and reading 041.5 on the right side.
  • Increase reading 041.5 to 042.5 using the increment/decrement key. Now repeat the process from point no. 18.4 to 18.10 until the values on the load indicator and the values on the master gauge match each other.
