The CBT1 Crease & Board Stiffness Tester measures both carton crease recovery and board stiffness to many international standards including BS6965 and PMI 068.
Measurement of these parameters gives carton board manufacturers, printers and packaging companies the ability to predict the 'run-ability' of a sample board or finished carton before committing valuable materials or machine time.
Board stiffness and crease recovery are key characteristics that affect the running performance of cartons on high speed packaging machines.
The test result (after 15 seconds) is displayed on the screen. A countdown time to test completion is shown
Crease to board stiffness ratio is calculated automatically and displayed on screen

Who measures board stifffness and crease resistance?
Board stiffness and crease resistance are important measures that indicate how a finished carton will run on an automated glueing, filling or packaging line.
Substrate manufacturers, printers, converters and any manufacturer who fills or packs products in cartons can use this measurement to optimise production.
QA departments use these instruments to check the running attributes of finished cartons are prior to conversion and filling, reducing lost production time from slow running or difficult to convert packaging.
