Top-load testing of PET bottles using a MultiTest 5-xt Touch Screen Controlled Torque Testing System

This video show a MultiTest-xt console controlled force testing stand being used to test PET bottles for "Top-load". The resistance to crush testing is found together with the individual bottle height. Immediate colour-coded indication of "Pass" or "Fail" is given on the touch-screen. This is an important test in the "downgauging" or "lightweighting" of packaging materials. This is to reduce the amount of material used, reduce costs and to meet environmental standards, but at the same time ensuring the packaging does not fail during the filling, capping and storage process.
