Box Compression Testers
Box Compression Testers (BCT) are wide-width electromechanical test machines designed for tension and compression tests at forces up to 50 kN (11,250 lbf). Ideal for compression tests on boxes, drums, cans, shipping containers made of corrugated fiberboard, wooden boxes and crates, pails, buckets, bottles, tubs, and pallets. Tests may be conducted on empty or filled boxes, with or without a box closure.

What Is the Purpose of Box Compression Testing?
The purpose of box compression testing is to determine the behavior or response of a corrugated material while it experiences a compressive load by measuring fundamental variables, such as strain, stress, and deformation. By testing a material in compression the compressive strength, yield strength, and ultimate strength among other parameters may all be determined.
