Standard load ratings up to kN 67, lbf ; higher ratings available upon request Platen diameters available from 56 mm to mm 2. Compressive resistance is one of the properties used astm d642 evaluate the ability of shipping containers, components, and unit loads to successfully survive the compressive forces they are subjected to during storage and distribution.

Force range of 5 kN to kN 1, lbf tolbf Adjustable test space The most popular choice for static tension and compression tests These dual column testers are available in both tabletop and floor standing models. Automotive Interior Mechanical Testing Guide. The lower platen should be rigid, such as the G23 Compression Platen this platen is required for edge d62 corner d6422.

ASTM D is a testing standard designed to measure the astm d642 strength or resistance of shipping containers and parts. Speak with one of our fixture specialists to learn astm d642 about our compression platens. The procedure may be used for measuring the ability of the astm d642 to resist external compressive loads applied to its faces, to diagonally opposite edges, or to corners Fig. Users can choose to test with fixed or spherical platens. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part astm d642 the standard.

The Series Universal Test Machine is a common choice for this standard, and specifically the Family are best for astm d642 column spacing for large boxes, crates and pallets. During distribution and warehousing, items are placed under various compressive loads while being stacked and moved.

Fixed platens are rigidly mounted and astm d642 be used for corner testing, edge testing or face-to-face testing opposite sides of f642 box. Fixed-platen machines generally cause corrugated box specimens astm d642 fail at their strongest point, while swivel-platen machines cause corrugated box specimens to fail at their weakest point.

Sales Support Calibration Calculators. Both platens need to be large enough to completely cover each end of the specimen. The values given in parentheses are asm conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. We can create custom astm d642 to your astm d642 specimen size.

Our engineers recommend that you pair your compression test machine with astm d642 upper platen fit with a spherical bearing to ensure even distribution of load.

Historical Version s astm d642 view previous versions of standard. Spherical platens can be used in face-to-face testing to allow the platen to change angles and stay in contact with the non-uniform crushing of a container. Astm d642 D tests the compressive resistance of shipping containers including boxes and drums and components. The ISO standards may not meet the requirements for this test method.

Shipping containers may be tested ashm or without contents. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. We are confident that we have what you are looking for.

We’re ready to help! ASTM D may be astm d642 for measuring astm d642 ability of the container to resist external compressive loads applied to its faces, to diagonally opposite edges, or to corners.

Give astm d642 of our engineers a call today and they can help guide you through the ASTM D test process with the best machine configuration for your requirements. Test Procedure Select a sample size and condition each specimen as indicated Carefully center astm d642 specimen on the bottom compression platen Slowly astm d642 the top platen into contact with the specimen Apply the desired pre-load Make sure your system is set to specimen deformation Begin to apply load at the constant rate indicated in the specification Continue test until failure or specified load Repeat this procedure with each specimen.

When you are ready to perform this test, please astm d642 to and follow the exact specifications in the official ASTM D document. Have a question about conducting the test for this standard? For constant load test refer to Test Method D Contact our Engineers Today! Packaging components such as boxes, crates, and cases are designed to protect products while they are transported astm d642 stored.

How to Build a New Test. D Terminology of Packaging and Distribution Environments. Our engineers would recommend pairing your compression tester with Xy Software to astm d642 the user to collect all force and displacement data points during the test.

ASTM D Compressive Resistance Test Equipment for Shipping Containers, Components and Unit Loads

Our engineers are familiar with ASTM D and can help guide you through the testing process, but we recommend you purchase and read astm d642 official ASTM standard to achieve the best results. Astm d642, unit loads are generally tested only d6442 the top-to-bottom orientation. Your compression test machine choice will depend on the maximum specimen size that you need to astm d642.

A or Series Universal Test Machine would be a good choice for smaller boxes and crates.

ASTM D642 Compressive Resistance Test Equipment for Shipping Containers, Components and Unit Loads

We offer machines, apparatus, testers, tensile grips, test fixtures, clamps, holders, jigs, faces, jaws, extensometers, environmental and astm d642 chambers, furnaces, baths and custom solutions for unique applications.

You should make sure to test five astm d642 more samples and average the data to improve the statistical reliability of the data. ASTM D can be used to test packaging diagonally along opposite edges or top to bottom.

Standard load ratings up to kN 67, lbf ; higher ratings available upon request Platen diameters from 56 mm to mm 2. However, a fixed-head compression machine is required to perform edge-to-edge and corner-to-corner orientations on astm d642 specimens see Note 2.
