Stacking forces generated during warehouse storage and transit can generate severe compressive loads. Compression tests are an essential part of the package design process. Lansmont offers a full range of Compression Test Systems to determine the performance of unit loads, individual packages, components, and materials under compressive loads. This information enables the engineer to minimize damage, costs, and liability due to stacking failure.

Squeezer

The Squeezer is our smallest compression tester, designed to evaluate box strength and perform distribution simulation compression tests.  The standard system has a platen size that is 30 in. (76 cm) square with a maximum opening of 48 in. (122 cm).  Maximum force capability is 5000 lbs. (22.2 kN).
