COMPRESSION TESTING MACHINES - BOX COMPRESSION TESTERS

Our MiniVal™ , Validator™, Validator™Plus and VAL™series box compression testers have become the industry standard for determining the ultimate compression resistance and long-term stacking strength of individual boxes, bulk containers and pallets. Compressive force levels are available from 2,200 lbf. (9,785 N) to 50,000 lbf. (222,400N). The Validator™ is easily integrated with our extremely intuitive LYNX software program for control, data acquisition and analysis. 

According to international standards: UNE 137001 - DIN UNE EN ISO 12048 - ASTM D 642 - ASTM D 4169 - ASTM D 4577 -
ASTM D 7030 - DIN 55440-1 - TAPPI T804 - FEFCO 50 - 49 CFR 178.606 - ISTA Series…
