The Z307 Semi-Automatic Bench Top Axial Load Gauge determines the maximum axial load force that can be applied prior to container failure within a short cycle time.


The test will begin once top tooling has detected the start of the axial load via the high accuracy mapped load cell, gathering accurate data throughout the inspection routine. Once the can sample has reached the buckle/column strength maximum achievable load, the result will be shown on screen and exported as necessary.

Measurement Features
