IDM Instruments have recently released the Crease Bend Tester for cardboard and corrugated cardboard, used to monitor scoring equipment to ensure box performance.
The Crease Bend Tester is testing equipment which measures the bending resistance of creased board at the time of folding at the crease. Once the measurement is taken, the maximum force required to bend the sample board is displayed on the digital display.
The Crease Bend Tester is the only one of its kind that uses a pneumatic sample clamp. The sample clamp holds a 300mm wide sample in place, while a motorised load bar applies pressure to the sample on the other side of the crease.
Corrugated converters already use the Crease Bend Tester to aid in making adjustments, to ensure the end user will have quality boxes that run effectively on their production line.
