When you are ready to perform this test, please refer to and follow the exact specifications in the official ASTM D document. Speak with one of our fixture specialists to learn more about our compression platens. Contact our Engineers Today!
Both platens need to be large enough to completely cover each end of the specimen. 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. You should make sure to test five or more samples and average the data to improve the statistical reliability of the data.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Compressive resistance is one of the properties used to evaluate the ability of shipping containers, components, and unit loads to successfully survive the compressive forces they are subjected to during storage and distribution.
We’re ready to help!
ASTM D Compressive Resistance Test Equipment for Shipping Containers, Components and Unit Loads
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. Link to Active This link will always route zstm the current Active version of the standard.
The lower platen should be rigid, such as the G23 Compression Platen this platen is required for edge or corner testing. Automotive Interior Mechanical Testing Guide.
ASTM D642 Compressive Resistance Test Equipment for Shipping Containers, Components and Unit Loads
However, a fixed-head compression machine asrm required to perform edge-to-edge and corner-to-corner orientations on test specimens see Note 2. G Spherical Seat Compression Platens.
astk 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. 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.
We are confident that we have what you are looking for. 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.
The best platen choice would be the TestResources G with an upper bearing. The ISO standards may not meet the requirements for this test method. How to Build a New Test.
ASTM D Test Method for Determining Compressive Resistance of Shipping Containers
Give one of our engineers a call today and they sstm help guide you through the ASTM D test process with the best machine configuration for your requirements. ASTM D can be used to test packaging diagonally along opposite edges or top to bottom.
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 to apply load at the constant rate indicated in the specification Continue test until failure or specified load Repeat this procedure with each specimen.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. ASTM D is a testing standard astn to measure the awtm strength or resistance of shipping containers and parts.
Planar Biaxial Testing Guide. Users can choose to test with fixed or spherical platens.
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 values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
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. Standard load ratings up to kN 67, lbf ; higher ratings available upon request Platen diameters available from 56 mm to mm 2. Standard load ratings up to kN 67, lbf ; higher ratings available upon request Platen diameters from 56 mm to mm 2. Shipping containers may be tested with or without contents.
Testing x642 components for compressive strength is needed to help guarantee the protection of the products inside them. Force range of 5 kN to kN 1, lbf tolbf Adjustable test space The most popular choice for static tension and compression tests These dual column testers are available in both tabletop and floor standing models.
This test method asm testing of multiple containers or unit loads, in addition to individual shipping containers, components, materials, or combination thereof. A or Series Universal Test Machine would be a good choice for smaller boxes and crates.
ASTM D tests the compressive resistance of shipping containers including boxes and drums and components. Also, unit loads are generally tested only in the top-to-bottom orientation. Specimens for ASTM D should be the full shipping container prepared in the same way that it will be used for packing and shipping.
We can create custom platens to your required specimen size. Sales Support Calibration Calculators. Fixed platens are rigidly mounted and can be used for corner testing, edge testing or face-to-face testing opposite sides of the box.
