Digital crush tester is a laboratory instrument used to measure the resistance of paper, cardboard, and other materials to compressive forces or crushing. It consists of a digital display unit, a load cell, and a clamping mechanism that can securely hold the material sample to be tested. The digital display unit shows the compressive force or load applied to the sample in real-time, allowing the user to monitor the testing process and determine the maximum load that the material can withstand before it collapses or deforms.
The digital crush tester can perform a variety of compression tests, such as ring crush, flat crush, edge crush, and corrugated crush tests, to evaluate the quality, strength, and durability of the material. It can also calculate various properties such as compression strength, stiffness, deformation, and energy absorption. The results of the test can be used to optimize the manufacturing process, improve the quality of the products, and ensure compliance with industry standards and regulations. The digital crush tester is widely used in the paper, packaging, and printing industries for quality control and product development.
