IDM's Crease & Stiffness Tester

With the ongoing commitment to product design and manufacturing improvements, IDM’s new-look model of Crease and Stiffness Tester C0039-M3 has been launched.

This unit tests the “spring back” or crease recovery of carton board used in the printing and packaging industries by determining the resistance offered by creased samples and measuring the recovery force after 15 seconds.

Including options such as adjustable jaws, bend length and IDM’s CST software, samples can be easily testing and results can be viewed or stored with stiffness/crease ratios. Reports can be created and saved for QA use. A sample cutter C0016 to quickly and easily prepare material for testing is also available.
