Compression - Crush

Box Compression Tester 02 1

Stacking forces or compression forces generated during warehouse storage and transit can generate severe compressive loads. Box compression tests (BCT) or stacking crush tests are an essential part of the packaging design process. We offer a full range of compression test systems to determine the performance of unit loads, individual packages, components, and materials under compressive loads p.ex boxes, cartons or tanks. This information enables the engineer to minimize damage, costs, and liability due to stacking failure.
