Puncture tester

For measuring the required energy to puncture corrugated board and cardboard.

The test consists of puncturing a board sample with a triangular pyramid-shaped puncture head, which is fixed to a pendulum. The required energy for the puncture head to cross the sample completely is measured. This means, to do the initial puncture, tear and open the board.

Application: Paper & Pulp, Cardboard
