Corrugated boxes are widely used in various industries for packaging and shipping due to their strength and durability. However, it is essential to ensure that these boxes meet specific quality standards to withstand the rigors of transportation and protect the contents inside. One crucial parameter to evaluate the quality of corrugated boxes is their bursting strength.

The Presto Dual Head Bursting Tester for paperboards offers significant advantages for assessing the bursting strength of corrugated boxes and paperboards. It features two test heads that apply pressure to the sample simultaneously, allowing for more accurate and efficient testing. In this blog, we are going to discuss brief information about Presto dual head bursting tester for paper & boards to ensure quality materials will be delivered to the customers.

But first, let us focus on why it is important for paperboard manufacturers to test the bursting strength of materials effectively.

Importance of testing bursting strength of paperboards

Testing the bursting strength of paperboards is of paramount importance in various industries, especially in the packaging and shipping sectors.

The bursting strength test measures the ability of paperboards to withstand the pressure exerted by their contents or external forces.

By conducting this test, manufacturers can ensure that their paperboard materials meet the required strength standards and can withstand the rigors of handling, stacking, and transportation.

By testing the bursting strength of paperboards, manufacturers can identify potential weaknesses in products and take further steps to ensure that quality materials will be delivered to the customers.

To ensure that your products meet the highest standards before delivering to customers, we at Presto have designed this quality lab testing equipment known as a dual head bursting strength tester.

This high-quality testing equipment has been embedded with the highest quality features that make it easy for the manufacturers to conduct bursting strength tests on the materials with ease.

Let us focus on the brief information about Presto dual head bursting strength tester for paperboards.
