COMPRESSION TESTING MACHINES - BOX COMPRESSION TESTERS

Packing and Packaging Compression Testing Machines

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 10 kN (2.248lbf) to 300 kN (67.442 lbf). The Validator™ is easily integrated with our extremely intuitive LYNX software program for control, data acquisition and analysis. 


Important: In addition to the standard Compression Testing Machines, TLS also manufactures Compression Testing Machines with special features depending on the size of the compression plates, travel and force capacity required by the user.

According to international standards: UNE 137001 - DIN UNE EN ISO 12048 - DIN UNE EN ISO 16495 - ASTM D 642 - ASTM D2659-16 - ASTM D 4169 - ASTM D 4577 - ASTM D 7030 - DIN 55440-1 - TAPPI T804 - FEFCO 50 - 49 CFR 178.606 - ISTA Series… Inclination Record System
