Whether you need to measure the compressive load capacity of egg cartons or the seal strength of sterilized medical pouches, Tinius Olsen material testing systems are ideal for determining the mechanical properties of packaging containers, components and materials. We have worked with hundreds of customers who test packaging in medical, transportation, food and retail applications.
All of our systems are capable of exceeding ramp and ASTM E4 force accuracy requirements to withstand continuous-to-travel, load and cyclic tests. Tinius Olsen provides a full range of testing machines, fixtures, controllers, software, environmental chambers and baths to perform compression, tension, peel, seal and fatigue tests to ASTM and ISO standards:
Paper and carton packaging
Film stretch wrap and laminates
Foam molds and inserts
Cushioning and loose fill packaging
Plastic boxes and containers
Adhesives, tapes and straps
Metal canisters and casings
Seals, buckles, and fasteners
Pouches and bags
Medical and pharmaceutical packaging
And many more
Virtually all of our test systems are capable of performing multiple mechanical tests on packaging products. The sample size and force capacity of your packaging as well as your analysis and reporting requirements will determine which Tinius Olsen test system is right for your application. We will adapt any system to meet particular load, speed and fixing requirements.
