Description

The consistent flow of cartons through form and fill machines is governed by two important parameters; crease quality and frictional forces between carton surfaces.

The Cerulean LCT solution provides a measure of both these parameters. The instrument measures the torque required to fold the carton crease, as well as the coefficient of friction, which is the degree of slippage between the surfaces of adjacent cartons when fed from the magazine of the cartooning machine. Additionally, the instrument records the spring back force, which indicates the materials’ resilience after the crease is folded. This is important as it can effect the way the carton behaves during the forming process and can also cause glued flaps to spring open before the adhesive has had time to cure.

The newly released V1.71 CT software is very versatile and enables the user to devise a structured carton performance assessment. The integrated data analysis package has been further improved to simplify the task of comparing and reporting measurement data. End users gain from an improved running efficiency on form and fill lines while converters gain from a reduction in rejected cartons.
