Give one of our engineers a call today and they can help guide you through the ASTM D test process with the best machine configuration for your requirements. This is a general guide designed to help you understand the basic test procedure and equipment needed to test your products and materials to this standard. Have a question about conducting the test for this standard? For constant load test refer to Test Method D Shipping containers may be tested with or without contents.
Speak with one of our fixture specialists to learn more about our compression platens. Specimens for ASTM D should be the full shipping container prepared in the same way that it will be used for packing and shipping. Our engineers are familiar with ASTM D and can help guide you through the testing process, but we recommend you purchase and read the official ASTM standard to achieve the best results.
ASTM D642 Compressive Resistance Test Equipment for Shipping Containers, Components and Unit Loads
ASTM D is a testing standard designed to measure the compressive strength or resistance of shipping containers and parts.
Our engineers would recommend pairing your compression tester with Xy Software to allow the user to collect all force and displacement data points during the test. The lower platen should be rigid, aztm as the G23 Compression Platen this platen is required for edge or corner testing.
ASTM D may be used for measuring the ability of the container to resist external compressive loads applied to its faces, to diagonally opposite edges, or to corners.
Force range of 5 kN to kN 1, lbf tolbf Adjustable test space The most popular choice for static tension and compression tests Qstm dual column testers are available in both tabletop and floor standing models.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
ASTM D Test Method for Determining Compressive Resistance of Shipping Containers
Fixed platens are rigidly mounted and can be used for corner testing, edge testing or face-to-face testing opposite sides of the box. Testing packing components for compressive strength is needed to help guarantee the protection of the products inside them. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Users can choose to test with fixed or spherical platens. The procedure may be used for measuring the ability of the container to resist external compressive loads applied to its faces, to diagonally opposite edges, or to corners Fig. During distribution and warehousing, items are placed under various compressive loads while being stacked and moved. Our engineers recommend that you pair your compression test machine with an upper platen fit with a spherical bearing to ensure even distribution of load.
The ISO standards may not meet the requirements for this test method.
D Terminology of Packaging and Distribution Environments. Also, unit loads are generally tested only in the top-to-bottom orientation. Automotive Interior Mechanical Testing Guide. We’re ready to help!
Fixed-platen machines generally cause corrugated box specimens to fail at their strongest point, while swivel-platen machines cause corrugated box specimens to fail at their asttm point. ASTM D can be used to test packaging diagonally along opposite edges or top to bottom. How to Build a New Test.
This test method covers testing of multiple containers or unit loads, in addition to individual shipping containers, components, materials, or combination aetm. The best platen choice would be the TestResources G with an upper bearing. ASTM D tests the compressive resistance of shipping containers including boxes and drums and components. However, a fixed-head compression machine is required to perform edge-to-edge and corner-to-corner orientations on test specimens see Note 2.
Standard load ratings up to kN 67, lbf ; higher ratings available upon request Platen diameters from 56 mm to mm 2. Packaging components such as boxes, crates, and cases are designed to zstm products while they are transported and stored. Planar Biaxial Testing Guide.
ASTM D Compressive Resistance Test Equipment for Shipping Containers, Components and Unit Loads
atm We offer machines, apparatus, testers, tensile grips, test fixtures, clamps, holders, jigs, faces, jaws, extensometers, environmental and humidity chambers, furnaces, baths and ashm solutions for unique applications. Standard load ratings up to kN 67, lbf ; higher ratings available upon request Platen diameters available from 56 mm to mm 2.
The Series Universal Test Machine is a common choice for this standard, and specifically the Family are best for wide column spacing for large boxes, crates and pallets. G Spherical Seat Compression Platens. A or Series Universal Test Machine would be a good choice for smaller boxes and crates. Both platens need to be large enough to completely cover each end of the specimen.
We can create custom platens to your required specimen size. Contact our Engineers Today! Your compression test machine choice will depend on the maximum specimen size that you need to test.
When you are ready to perform this test, please refer to and follow the exact specifications in the official ASTM D document. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. Spherical platens can be used in face-to-face testing to allow the platen to change angles and stay in contact with wstm non-uniform crushing of a container.
Test Procedure Select a sample size and condition each specimen as indicated Carefully center the specimen on the bottom compression platen Slowly bring the top platen into contact with the specimen Apply the desired pre-load Make sure your system is set to specimen deformation Begin dd642 apply load at the constant rate indicated in the specification Continue test until failure or specified load Repeat this procedure with each specimen.
