COMPRESSED TO CHECK MAXIMUM WEIGHT
Crush resistance testing involves a load limit. It measures a compressive load to a point when a sample deforms, fractures, shatters or collapses. This type of test may be applied to various products, including corrugated cardboard, glass, bearings, bricks, concrete, or any sample where crush resistance is essential. This is a standard test used in packaging design and validation.
Generally, a crush resistance test involves. The material under test is compressed and compared to the load limit. Maximum load, load at break and work at full load are calculated. The sample is placed, with or without sample holder depending on test procedure, between the plates. The appropriate test program is selected on the touch screen. The platens automatically travel to the correct start position. Pressing the start button causes the platens to compress the sample at a preset speed.
