Introduction

The Crush Test is designed as a robust, easy to-use instrument. Exactly what you need when performing crush tests. The Crush Tester is suitable for a wide variety of samples, including corrugated board, tubes, paper and plastics. The special sample holders extend the instrument’s possibilities. The accuracy is achieved with a precision load cell, which is even accurate at low force values.

After each test the results are dispalyed on screen. Along with the results, a test curve and statistics are also shown. The software allows the operator to develop individual test methods for easy operation. Changing measuring units is easy and allows the crush tester to conform to a variety of testing standards. The data is easily exported to a computer, especially when using the GraphMaster™ software.
