The final items will be shipped to clients in various areas by each company. Packaging is extremely vital in the transit and shipping process. A high-quality corrugated box will safely convey your product to your consumers. As a result, you should use a box compression tester from Testronix Testing Instruments to check the integrity of your corrugated boxes. This fantastic testing equipment will assist in determining the compression strength of corrugated boxes in order to determine whether or not they can sustain external pressures. It's critical to make sure that the packing material you're employing protects your goods as much as possible. This will protect the item from getting harmed during shipment.

Here in this blog, we are going to provide you with information about how you can easily ensure the quality of packaging with the help of a Testronix box compression tester. So, let us get started.

Why you should test the compression strength of boxes?

A box compression test is any test in which a material is compressed, "squashed," crushed, or flattened as a result of opposing pressures pushing inward on the specimen from opposite sides. The test sample is usually sandwiched between two plates that evenly distribute the applied load across the full surface area of two opposed faces of the test sample, and then the plates are forced together by a universal test machine, flattening the sample.

A compressed sample is generally shortened in the direction of the applied pressures and expanded in the opposite direction. A sample is inserted into a box compression tester with a compression fixture, a load is applied, and the sample is practically crushed until it fails.

When you will test the box compression strength of these boxes, then you can easily deliver quality products to the customers. This will help you to save you from product rejections. The box compression tester from Testronix will provide you with an immense number of benefits.

 You can easily read the benefits of the box compression tester and make sure that the compression strength of the boxes will easily be determined before delivering the products to your customers. This testing instrument will provide an accurate reading of test results. Below we have listed the features and technical specifications of this testing equipment.

Features of Testronix box compression tester

The Stacking Load determines the Compression Strength of boxes (CS) (SL). The Stacking Load is the maximum physical load that a carton can bear at any given time throughout its use. Testing this strength is of utmost importance to make sure that the product you are delivering should be free of any errors. Below we have listed the features that you will get with the use of this lab testing equipment.
