When it comes to product packaging, cartons or corrugated boxes play an important role in delivering products accurately to customers. Mini cartons play an important role in preventing the product from getting tampered with and hence improving product safety. But due to external pressure, these boxes might get collapsed easily and the contents inside the products will get damaged. Thus, it is important for paper & packaging manufacturers to make the use of right lab testing instrument to compression test strength of mini cartons. Presto has designed a high-quality box compression tester digital mini to test the compression strength of mini cartons.

This is one of the high-quality lab testing instruments that is used to test the compression strength of mini cartons & determine the load that the box will be able to withstand during transit and storage. In this blog, we are going to provide you with information about the Presto box compression tester digital mini & how this quality lab testing equipment is useful in determining the compression strength of boxes with ease. So, let us get started!

Benefits of testing the compression strength of mini cartons

Mini cartons are an efficient and effective way to package products. They are often used for food items but can be used for a variety of other products as well.

With ever-increasing global shipping demands, it’s more important than ever for businesses to make sure their products arrive safely and intact. Testing the compression strength of boxes helps ensure that they can withstand the rigors of shipping and handling without damage, and also helps reduce material costs by determining the optimal amount of corrugated cardboard for each box.

There are numerous benefits to testing the compression strength of boxes. Perhaps most importantly, it allows businesses to ensure that their products will arrive safely at their destination.

No one wants to receive a damaged or broken product, and by testing the compression strength of boxes, businesses can avoid such disasters.

In addition, testing the compression strength of boxes can also help businesses to reduce product rejections effectively. By ensuring that the boxes will be able to withstand a certain amount of pressure, it is important for the manufacturers to make the use of right lab testing equipment.

Now, let us discuss how Presto box compression tester digital mini will help to test the box compression strength of materials.

All about Presto box compression tester digital mini

Compression strength is a measure of the amount of force required to compress a material. The higher the compression strength, the more resistant the material is to crushing or collapse. By ensuring that boxes can withstand a certain amount of pressure, businesses can avoid over-packaging their products and using more materials than necessary.

Testing the compression strength of boxes is an important part of quality control as it provides insight into how well a box can hold up in various environmental conditions, but it also helps assess any potential risks before they become costly problems.

We at Presto have designed a high-quality compression test machine for mini cartons that will be able to determine the load a material can withstand during transit & storage. Presto Mini Box Compression Tester is manufactured under various test standards that include ASTM D642, ASTM D4169, TAPPI T804, ISO 12048, and JIS Z0212.

This will ensure that the manufacturers will get highly accurate testing results with the use of this quality lab testing equipment. You can read more on how Presto box compression tester mini will accurately test the compression strength of boxes.
