Drop Tester Fro Transport Packaging Material

Approx Price: Rs 75,000 / Unit 

The drop tester is used for determination of effect of dropping on transport packages. This test helps to determine the ability of the packages and packing material placed inside them for cushioning to provide protection to its contents and to measure the ability of the container to withstand rough handling.

In this test the package to be tested is placed on a frame having two swivable doors. The height of the frame is adjusted to the desired value. The doors are opened suddenly, the package is dropped on to a steel platform, and the extent of damage caused evaluated.

The GlobeDropTesterfor transport packages consists of a dropping mechanism and a heavy fabricated base plate fitted with a heavy vertical pipe for guiding the dropping mechanism.

Collapse Tester

Approx Price: Rs 65,000 / Unit 

Paper tubes used for winding yarn, shall have adequate mechanical strength. One of the tests used for ascertaining the mechanical strength of paper tubes is the collapse test. In this test, a test specimen taken from the sample of paper tube is placed on a rigid flat metallic plate and pressed against another rigid flat metallic plate. The maximum force required to collapse the tube is then measured.

The Globe Collapse Tester for Paper Tubes consists of a rigid platform for placing the test specimen on, an arrangement for compressing the specimen with the help of a manually operated hydraulic jack and measurement of maximum force with the help of calibrated pressure gauge with a dummy pointer.

The test specimen is placed on a flat steel platform and a moving flat rigid plate is lowered on it with the help of a hand wheel and screw arrangement so that it just touches the top of the sample. The load is then applied by a manually operated hydraulic jack placed below the lower plate, which lifts the lower plate to compress the specimen against the upper plate. The hydraulic pressure in the jack which is proportional to force on the specimen is measured on a pressure gauge with a dummy pointer to record the maximum pressure corresponds to collapse strength of the tube. The collapse strength is then determined in force unit with the help of calibration certificate for the pressure gauge provided with the equipment.

Two pressure gauges are fitted to the equipment, one for measuring low force and the other for measuring high force. An isolating valve is also provided on the low range pressure gauge for its safety to isolate it while conducting test on the high range pressure gauge.

Compression Strength Tester

Approx Price: Rs 55,000 / Unit 

Transport packages shall possess sufficient compression strength so that they do not get deformed or crushed when stacked one above the other, either during transit or in storage. The compression strength of transport packages is determined by placing the package on a flat platform and pressing it down from top with the help of another flat plate.


The Compression Strength Tester (For Transport Packages)for transport packages is fabricated out of rigid mild steel sections and plates. The lower platen on which the box is kept for pressing is fixed on the frame of the tester. The package under test is placed over this platen and pressed down from top with the help of another platen. The upper platen is moved down by means of a screw arrangement. This platen is pivoted so that is can tilt to align its lower face with the top of the package, if the top and bottom faces of the package are not parallel. For conducting edge loading tests the upper platen can be held rigidly so that it does not tilt.

Schopper Folding Endurance Tester

Approx Price: Rs 55,000 / Unit 

Folding or creasing plays a very important part in life of paper. Almost all varieties of paper are subjected to either single or repeated folds in the course of their application. Determination of folding resistance is thus of prime importance in assessing suitability of any paper for the end use.


Folding resistance is usually determined by either the MIT folding endurance method or by the Schopper folding endurance method. While the former is suited for any thickness of paper up to 1.25 mm, the latter is generally used when the thickness of paper is less than 0.25 mm.

Mit Folding Endurance Tester

Approx Price: Rs 80,000 / Unit 

Folding or creasing plays a very important part in use of paper. Almost all varieties of paper are subjected to either single or repeated folds in the course of their application. Determination of folding resistance is thus of prime importance in assessing suitability of any paper for the end use.


The Globe MITFoldingEnduranceTester for paper consists of a motor, pulley set, and linkage mechanism to give the desired angular oscillation to the folding head. A set of five interchangeable folding heads is provided to the papers of various thicknesses. A spring loading clamping jaw constrained to move without rotation in a direction perpendicular to the axis of rotation of the folding head and having its clamping surface in plane of this axis holds one end of the test specimen while the other end is held in the folding head.

Sizing Tester for Paper (COBB Tester)

Approx Price: Rs 65,000 / Unit 
The amount of water absorbed by any paper is dependent on various characteristics such as its sizing and porosity etc. The sizing of paper can be determined by conducting a water absorption test with the help of a Cobb tester.

In this test the weight of water absorbed by a known area of the paper under test in a specified duration of time is determined, from which the sizing characteristic is evaluated. However, this method is not recommended for determination of sizing characteristic of writing paper.

Tensile Testing Machine for Paper (Electronic Model)

Approx Price: Rs 65,000 / Meter 

Tensile strength and elongation are the two most important properties that determine the suitability of any material for a particular application. These properties are determined with the help of a tensile testing machine. The load range and rate of elongation are selected depending on the characteristics of the materials being tested.

The Globe Tensile Testing Machinefor paper is suitable for determining tensile strength and elongation of paper and similar materials. It is based on constant rate of traverse principle, in which one end of the test specimen is held in a grip attached to a load measuring device and the other end is held in a grip which is made to move at a fixed speed with the help of a motor, worm reduction gearbox, and screw arrangement.

The load exerted on the test specimen is measured with the help of a load cell and digital load indicator. The load indicator has a facility of retaining peak force applied on the test specimen in its memory to indicate the breaking load of the specimen. An overload relay is provided to stop the motor automatically in case of overload. The equipment also has an arrangement to stop the movement automatically at any pre-set separation of the grips.


The traverse of the moving group is indicated on a digital readout to facilitate determination of elongation. The speed of traverse of the moving grip can be changed by changing the position of a V-belt in a set of cone pulleys.

Digital Brust Strength Tester

Approx Price: Rs 1 Lakh / Unit 
Digital Brust Strength Tester is the tester used to measure the strength under multi-directional force.

Elmendorf Tearing Tester

Approx Price: Rs 65,000 / Unit 

The tearing strength of fabrics, papers, plastic films, or other similar materials in sheet form is determined by measurement of work done in tearing through a fixed length of the test specimen using the Elmendorf tear tester .


The Globe Elmendorf Tearing Tester consists of a brass sector pendulum pivoted on low-friction ball bearings over a vertical bracket fixed on a rigid metallic base. The test specimen, in shape of a rectangle, is held between two clamps, one of which is mounted on the pendulum and the other is mounted on the vertical bracket. The clamps are mounted in such a manner that their holding faces are aligned with each other when the pendulum is locked in its raised position. The pendulum is released by lifting a release lever. This action causes the pendulum to fall down under its weight and to tear the test specimen while doing so. The energy absorbed during tearing is indicated on a scale fitted on the pendulum by a low friction pointer pivoted on the axis of the pendulum.
