Cerulean Packing to launch new three in one carton testing kit at PackTech

Cerulean Packing, a packing and testing machinery maker, has announced that it will be launching a new carton testing machine which combines three quality control tests in one instrument, at next month’s PackTech show

The Newton Laboratory Carton Tester (LCT) measures crease strength and box-forming force, spring-back force and friction, eliminating the need for three separate machines, according to Cerulean Packing.

In a statement, the firm said that the LCT can measure creases up to 590mm wide and is suitable for cartons made from corrugated and paper board up to 8mm thick.

The crease strength and box-forming force tests measure the torque required to bend a crease or form a box, providing an instantaneous curve that shows the torque for every degree of deflection. This is followed by the spring-back force test to check for crease recovery properties, according to the firm. The friction test, available as an optional extra, checks the slip resistance properties of the carton.

Visitors to Cerulean’s stand at Packtech will be able to see the new LCT in action and talk to representatives from the company in more detail about how it can help them detect potential production line problems before they happen.
