Puncture Resistance Tester
Packaging materials and Containers are subject to puncture hazards in handling and transit.
Resistance to puncture is an important parameter that deter- mines the performance of a packaging material.
The equipment is designed to give an accurate and reliable indication of the resistance offered by the packaging materi- als to puncture.
Useful for testing a wide range of materials — from thin papers to thick boards and similar materials.
Indispensable for quality control and development work — both for manufacturers of packaging materials and their consumers.
The equipment is made to international standards. Each machine is individually tested and calibrated in the factory.
