What does the CFA measure?

The Hanatek Carton Force Analyser (CFA) measures the forces that limit the running speed of folding box board packaging.

By measuring the stiffness of the substrate and crease bending resistance, the user can optimise cartons for faster running and packaging speeds. The instrument allows individual creases to be analysed identifying problem areas in packaging design or manufacture.

Industry research indicates that the packaging speeds of pre-glued skillets is governed by the energy required to open creases. The Hanatek CFA is the first instrument to isolate and accurately measure this key parameter.
