The values that are fundamental in choosing the boxes are the capacity to withstand vertical pressure and stacking.
In this way each packaging can be designed to avoid
problems (such as, collapse) linked to the choice of an unsuitable raw material.
Technology helps and thanks to special machinery, such as the
mini press for the ECT control (Edge Compression Test), tells us
after how many kilograms the cardboard will start to lose its shape (thus identifying resistance to vertical pressure).
We also use a Compression Tester that tests resistance to stacking by measuring the box’s BCT (Box Compression Test).
This compression test analyses the design of the box taking into consideration:
