Compression Testers | Box Compression Tester Model: B0003

The Box Compression Tester is a floor-mounted machine where a complete pallet can be loaded Into the machine. It is designed to evaluate packages and material under compressive loads.

Two platens are supplied with the machine as standard, an 800 x 800 x 50mm and a floating aluminium platen 1220 x 1220 x 50mm.

The floating platen can be removed and put aside if smaller items are tested constantly. The Box Compression Tester uses a hydraulic cylinder and servo system to apply a precise linear motion and force.


  • Box Compression
  • Stack Testing
  • Multi-box Compression


  • Force
    • A precision load cell is used to Measure the applied force and a precise linear transducer measures the test sample deflection.
  • Construction
    • The construction is of a strong ‘A’ frame type.
  • Crosshead Assembly
    • Motor driven ball screws, for fast and accurate operation, reposition the crosshead assembly.
  • Power Pack
    • The Power pack and hydraulic controls are in a stand alone cabinet, hoses and control cables plug into it.
  • Control Dimensions:
    • Control System: 600 x 600 x 1600mm approx.
    • Hydraulic P/S: 600 x 600 x 1500mm approx.

Computer Software:

  • The software is based on the worldwide-recognised National Instruments LabVIEW Program and
  • Tester Program developed by IDM Instruments.
