New Crease and Board Stiffness Tester


New Crease and Board Stiffness Tester.

Hanatek Instruments new Crease and Board Stiffness Tester (CBT1) is now available from AML Instruments in Lincolnshire.
The CBT1 Crease & Board Stiffness Tester measures both carton crease recovery and board stiffness to many international standards including BS6965 and PMI 068.

Measurement of these parameters gives carton board manufacturers, printers and packaging companies the ability to predict the ‘run-ability’ of a sample board or finished carton before committing valuable materials or machine time.

Board stiffness and crease recovery are key characteristics that affect the running performance of cartons on high speed packaging machines.


  • Measure crease recovery force at 90˚
  • Measure board stiffness at 15˚
  • The test result (after 15 seconds) is displayed on the screen. A countdown time to test completion is shown Crease to board stiffness ratio is calculated automatically and displayed on screen
