Core compression strength refers to the ability of a paper core, such as those used in winding rolls of plastic films, to withstand compressive forces without collapsing or deforming. It is a crucial property to evaluate as it directly impacts the performance and stability of the materials wound around the core. To test the core compression strength of winding rolls we at Presto have launched a high-quality lab testing instrument known as a core compression tester motorized. This is one of the high-quality lab testing equipment that has been designed for measuring the compression strength of paper cores.

This quality testing equipments will provide the paper & packaging manufacturer’s highly accurate lab testing results. This testing instrument comes with a motorized system with an inbuilt calibration facility to ensure accuracy in test results. In this blog, we are going to discuss brief information about Presto motorized core compression tester and the latest features embedded in this quality paper & packaging testing instrument that make it unique. We will also discuss a brief about core compression strength.

Introduction to core compression strength

The core compression strength of a paper core refers to its ability to withstand compressive forces without collapsing or deforming. It is a measure of the core’s load-bearing capacity and structural integrity.

A high core compression strength ensures that the core can support the weight and pressure exerted during handling, storage, and transportation of materials wound around it, without causing damage or compromising the quality of the products.

By evaluating the core’s compression strength, manufacturers can select the appropriate core materials and dimensions, optimize production processes, and ensure the reliability and performance of the final products in industries such as packaging, and printing.

Manufacturers can easily overcome the challenge of compressed paper cores with a Presto core compression tester.

Now, let us discuss a brief about the Presto core compression tester and its highly advanced features.

All about Presto core compression tester Motorized

The Presto Core Compression Tester Motorized is a state-of-the-art laboratory testing instrument designed to measure the compression strength of paper cores used in winding rolls of plastic films. It incorporates several advanced features that enhance its accuracy, reliability, and ease of use.

The motorized system of the tester ensures a smooth and consistent application of compressive force, eliminating the need for manual operation. This maintenance-free system guarantees long-lasting performance and minimizes downtime.

With the inbuilt calibration facility, the tester can be calibrated periodically to maintain the accuracy and traceability of test results. This feature ensures that the instrument remains calibrated and provides reliable measurements over time.

An overload facility is included to protect the tester from exceeding its maximum capacity, preventing any potential damage. This feature adds an extra layer of safety during testing procedures.

The microprocessor-based display provides precise and accurate test results, ensuring high-quality data for analysis. The digital display offers clear and easy-to-read information, enhancing the overall user experience.

The Presto Core Compression Tester Motorized delivers highly accurate test results by applying uniform compression force on the paper cores. This consistency in testing conditions ensures reliable and repeatable measurements, allowing for precise evaluation of core strength.
