ect / edge crush test system

  • compact laboratory equipment that determines edgewise compressive strength of corrugated cardboard with flutes positioned vertically,
  • the test consist of the measurement of edge crush resistance by applying force perpendicular to the axis of the flutes, of single-, double-, or triple-wall corrugated cardboard,
  • edge crush test (ECT) according to DIN EN ISO 3037,
  • value of ECT is part of McKee formula, therefore it plays valid role in predicting compressive strength of corrugated board packaging,
  • precise measurement system allow to obtain accurate and reliable results,
  • LCD touch panel allows to check the result and watch the graph of force-displacement curve immediately,
  • statistical data from the series of tests (max to 48) is availiable on LCD panel,
  • the compression plates are also suitable for flat compression test (FCT)
  • main parameters:
    • device dimensions: 246 x 244 x 326 mm,
    • device weight: 7 kg,
    • sample dimensions: 100 x 25 mm,
    • accuracy of force measurement: < 0.07 gr,
    • accuracy of displacement measurement: < 0.01 mm,
