Carton diagonal edge crush strength

Customised engineering example

In addition to axial top-load testing upon the flat sides of carton boxes, the compressive strength across opposite edges can be an important measurement. This represents a typical situation when stacking on a shelf, where damage can occur if the box falls.

Holding a carton without slippage for this test requires custom fixtures to secure over the correct length and to apply the compressive load at the correct angle.

Mecmesin has met these requirements for a number of clients, by supplying custom-designed V-profile compression bars. These ensure the same angle of testing, along the length of the carton to be compressed, thus providing the maximum repeatability when testing.
