Edge Crush Tester – Digital

An edge crush tester is an equipment which is structured for measuring the edge crush resistance of cardboard. This machine subjects the cardboard to a compressive force and asses the durability and strength of the cardboard.

There are two rigid plates in the edge crush tester which are used for applying pressure to the edges of corrugated cardboard. In this tester, pressure increased gradually and hence the maximum force of withstanding the sample is measured. 

The edge crush test is very important for evaluating the performance of cardboard packaging. The test is significantly important because it determines the ability of the material inside cardboard to withstand pressure. It involves stacking, transportation or other forms of pressure. 

After testing the cardboard with this machine, manufacturers and shippers get to know whether the content inside the cardboard is safe or not.

Benefits of Edge Crush Tester

Edge crush tester is a beneficial testing instrument for a range of industries such as packaging, paper making, quality inspection etc. It is a great instrument for the determination of the probable compression strength of corrugated boxes. This is done by testing the paper board used in their manufacturing.

Edge crush tester is also known as Flat Crush tester or Ring Crush Twister

It tests the papers for corrugated boxes accurately. It can also be used for compression tests on small materials. Moreover, The rigidity of the CFB box is depicted by the higher ECT value determined by the ECT tester.

So, maybe the quality of the CFB board is compared to this.

In addition, by using Mckee’s formula, the compression strength of the box can also be determined.

The Mckee’s formula is: k.ECT * T * Z, In this formula, k is constant, ECT is the Edge Crush Test value, T is the thickness of the CFB board, Z is the parameter of the box

The edge-wise compression strength of corrugated boxes is important to test for determining the power of materials inside the boxes. It is important to determine whether the material withstands shipping pressure or not. 

Hence, to make this test easy for manufacturers, Effective Lab India has manufactured the ect for conducting the edge-wise compressive strength on materials.
