Test the grammage of the corrugated shipper with the GSM checking kit

grammage of the corrugated shipper with the GSM

When it comes to choosing a corrugated shipper, grammage is an important factor to consider. Grammage refers to the thickness of the paperboard that makes up the corrugated shipper. The higher the grammage, the thicker and more durable the corrugated shipper will be. Thus, to ensure that your packaging materials have the right amount of grammage, it is important to test the product accurately. We at Presto have designed a high-quality lab testing instrument known as a grammage checking kit.

This quality testing equipment will be used to test the GSM of different packaging materials including grammage shipper & ensure that quality materials will be delivered to the customers. In this blog, we are going to provide you with information about GSM testing machines and how our quality testing equipment is useful in testing the GSM of paper. But let us first discuss what corrugated shipper is and how they can enhance the way of packaging.

What corrugated shipper is and how they can enhance the way of packaging?

A corrugated shipper refers to a type of packaging container primarily made from corrugated cardboard material. Corrugated cardboard is composed of three layers: an inner liner, an outer liner, and a fluted or corrugated middle layer. This construction lends the material its strength and durability.

Corrugated shippers are commonly used to transport and protect various goods during shipping and storage. Their design can enhance packaging in several ways. The corrugated structure provides cushioning and shock absorption, safeguarding items from potential damage during transit.

Moreover, corrugated shippers are lightweight and easy to handle, which contributes to reducing shipping costs and improving logistics efficiency. Additionally, they are customizable in terms of size, printing, and labelling, allowing for branding and informational purposes. These qualities collectively make corrugated shippers an effective and versatile solution for safe and efficient packaging and shipping across various industries. You can deliver high-quality packaging products by testing with paper testing instruments.

Now, let us discuss more about the Presto GSM checking kit and how this quality testing equipment is useful in testing the grammage of materials.

What is GSM Checking Kit?

GSM checking kit is a high-quality lab testing instrument designed by the experts at Presto that is used to measure the grammage of different materials like textiles, corrugated shippers, paper and other related products.

This quality testing instrument has consist of a GSM round cutter and a GSM weighing balance that makes it easy for the manufacturers to test the grammage properties of the materials. With the use of this quality testing equipment, manufacturers can easily weigh the samples and measure the grammage of the materials.

The instrument is a compact and space-saving model which eventually gives an easy and simple procedure for measurement. Now, let us discuss the features and technical specifications of this quality testing equipment.

Now, let us discuss brief information about the benefits of testing the grammage of corrugated shippers.

Benefits of Testing the Grammage of Corrugated Shipper

There are many benefits of testing the grammage of corrugated shippers. One of the most common benefits is that it allows you to ensure that your product meets the required specifications for your particular application. In addition, testing the grammage can also help you troubleshoot production problems, optimize production processes, and improve product quality.

With the Presto grammage testing kit, one can easily ensure that accurate materials will be delivered to the customers by testing their grammage.

GSM will be calculated by multiplying the weight of the sample in grams by 1000 and dividing the whole by the area of the sample in cm2.

GSM Calculation formula:

GSM=weight of sample in grams x1000/ Area of sample in cm2
